Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic shop, like a treasure, hidden in plain sight near Stephen's Green. Cozy and full of so many beautiful items, with a variety of price points. The welcoming staff was extremely helpful in making choices and in shipping my purchases to the States. I look forward to shopping here again, in store and online.

There is an incredible wealth of knitted goods at Cleo. From one of a kind hand knits, to brands such as Fisherman Out of Ireland and Eribe..their offerings will keep you there for a while. They even had Flock stuffed small creatures (owls, whales, sheep). The quality of what is sold is a cut above anything else you will find. The staff is always so helpful and friendly (and patient.). I never go to Dublin without a stop here.

I stopped into Cleo, drawn in by the display of wool items in the window, and what a treasure! There are so many wonderful handmade goods in here, that I got almost all of my gifts for “back home” from here. Don’t miss the second room of goods in the back!

Came here looking for an Irish sweater. Welcomed by a very pleasant lady who helped me find nit one but two sweaters I couldn't leave behind.
Unlike most if the shops selling Irish souvenirs this lady made me feel like a welcome guest.

This is THE best shop in Dublin!! We discovered it 3 years ago when we were there. Bought several items. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the products from all over Ireland gorgeous and very high quality, and the prices very reasonable.

This month, since we couldn't go in person, I went up to their web site and bought a large throw for our bed in winter, and a cardigan sweater for my wife for Xmas. They arrived safely and are wonderful! So even if you can't shop in person now by going to Dublin, this store is well worth checking out.

After reading some great reviews I first visited Cleo about 3 years ago in search of an Irish sweater. I am SO happy that I found this shop the day before I was due to go back home. They have the most beautiful and truly one of a kind sweaters (among other great items). The brands they carry are extremely well made. They also have their Cleo originals that are hand knit from local knitters around Ireland. I love this store so much that it was my first stop back when I returned the following year, and now that I have found their website I am in BIG trouble! :) Going to this shop is a must if you are in Dublin, you can see all the wonderful patterns and styles of different knitters from all over. I also have had a wonderful experience e-mailing back and forth with Sarah on a sweater she is having custom knit for me, Cleo is truly a very special shop.

14 years ago I took a special trip to Ireland and one of the highlights of my trip was finding an expertly handknit Aran cardigan at Cleo in Dublin. When my vacation to Ireland this year had to be postponed, I decided to buy another handknit sweater from them online. Through a couple of emails, I decided on the sweater I wanted to order. They were very responsive and easy to work with. The sweater included a tag with the name of the woman who made it and is beautiful inside and out - truly heirloom quality! It's made of hearty Irish wool and will last for a good long time.

Thank you Rebecca. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and how lovely to have heard from you after your visit 14 years ago. Enjoy wearing the sweater for many years to come.

We visited Cleo ltd in Dublin in October of 2017, and have never forgotten the beautiful, unusual purchases we made then. And we continue to write to them to purchase sweaters, socks and hats. The staff treats us like old friends, so it is lovely to continue to buy items that are well made and beautiful from this shop in Dublin. Do look on their website: cleo-ltd.com

An absolutely fabulous shop, managed by a charming, patient and very knowledgeable lady. The stock is amazing, it was very difficult to leave with just a few items, but we had only just started a 6 week holiday from Australia and packing space was at a premium. Without doubt, the only place to but authentic Irish woollen goods - avoid the tourist shops and head straight here (you won't find this quality anywhere else in Dublin).

Having wandered through many stores that offered little, it was great to find this small store with wonderful local Irish knit goods. Beautiful wool sweaters weren't cheap, but are the real thing and if that's what you want, this is the place. I found a soft woolen scarf at a reasonable price that served me extremely well through the rest of the trip. Definitely worth checking out.
