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.

Located in a gorgeous old townhouse, Cleo's offers beautiful goods and friendly, impeccable service. The focus is on woolens: lovely sweaters, hats, gloves, scarves and blankets. There are some other items like candles as well. Most of the goods are Irish made but they also have lovely Fair Isle sweaters from Scotland. I found some really unique gifts to bring home and treated myself as well. If you are leaving the country, be sure to ask about the VAT refund-- 20% on most items and the staff will go above and beyond to help you (they did for me). Highly recommend that you stop by Cleo's -- close to St Stephen's Green and the center of town. One of the few retailers in Dublin to take Am Ex, too.

We were told to go to Cleo if we wanted something wonderful to take home for ourselves and this was surely the place. All kinds of scarves, sweaters, blankets, socks and even jewelry and stuffed animals all made by Irish artists. Wonderful shop and very friendly staff.

So glad we found this spot! We wanted to find handmade Irish knit goods, and they have an amazing selection of unique items we haven't seen anywhere else. Among other items, we found a beautiful red merino wool poncho for our 7-year-old daughter. Well worth making the detour from the main shopping streets of Grafton and Nassau. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit (even the kids!) and the personal service.
