Our Story

Grahams is a traditional shoe store in Ireland. In 1969 Tom Graham established the first shop in Dublin, at 16 Exchequer Street, near the famous Grafton Street. As a visionary and enterprising Tom Graham opened ladies’ store and he was one of the pioneers standing alone children’s shops as well.

Based on the success of the first shop and persuaded for his eldest son, Tom decided to open the second store in 1988 in Kilkenny. After that, as a result of the expansion process, the new Grahams shop was opened in Carlow in 1997. The next step on the ladder was Naas in 2005, followed by O’Connell in 2006.

The company now encompasses seven shops across five locations in Ireland offering mens, ladies and childrens shoes. It remains, one of only a handful of family-run, independently owned shoe retailers in the country.

The secret of Grahams success is the special attention they give towards their customers.  All staff are highly trained to help their customers choose the correct shoe and provide a first-rate fitting service for children.
