Castlebar is undoubtedly one of the west of Ireland’s premier shopping destinations, offering ample town centre car parking, a diverse selection of shops and plenty of excellent bars, cafes, and restaurants where you can relax over a cup of coffee or a delicious lunch.
Castlebar will never disappoint when it comes to a day or weekend shopping break.
Building on the town’s undoubted strength, the local Chamber of Commerce have launched ‘Destination Castlebar - Everyone’s Invited’, a destination marking drive which has generated great support and investment from local retailers, accommodation providers, entertainment providers and businesses in the town.
The initiative is a call out to couples, families, and groups of friends to come to Castlebar where they can enjoy cultural activities, top class entertainment by night and excellent shopping by day. A nationwide campaign is being rolled out with a website to support the drive, which is set to put Castlebar on the national and international stage as a shopping tourism destination.
None of this would be possible without the support of indigenous, local businesses as well as the multi-nationals who have opened fantastic stores in Mayo’s county town providing excellent choice when it comes to shopping. To find out more about the Destination Castlebar project contact Stephanie in the Chamber office on 094 902 4845.
Whether you are renovating your home, redesigning a room, looking for a mother of the bride outfit, some casual work wear or going out outfits, Castlebar will give you some excellent options. When it comes to motor parts, bicycle shops and outdoor gear, you won’t get a better selection in any other town in the west.
Is it the latest fragrances or cosmetics that you are looking for? Or top brands in eye wear or make-up? Then Castlebar won’t disappoint with excellent offers on top brands in its pharmacies.

The vouchers carry a safety seal and are valid for up to a year. The vouchers can be purchased in the Castlebar Chamber office on Linenhall Street, Gift Supreme and in Castlebar Credit Union.
So hop in the car, on a bus or the train and make your way to Castlebar for a weekend or day’s shopping without the stresses synonymous with the country’s larger cities.
