After a long break, due to restrictions in response to the pandemic, our three stores are now back open and to say we are excited is an understatement!
As a 5th generation family business, our customers are so important to us, over the years we have built up strong relationships and we are delighted to be able to reconnect again face-to-face.
We are very proud of our stores and teams who deliver a very special Magee 1866 experience, if you haven’t visited before, let us introduce you.
MAGEE OF DONEGAL
The Magee of Donegal store has stood on the same site on The Diamond in Donegal town since first opened as a draper’s store by John Magee in the 1800’s.
At that time business owners lived over their premises with their family and staff, one census records 12 residents including the Magee family, two milliners, four apprentices and John Magee’s draper’s assistant and cousin – Robert Temple, who went on to buy the business in 1900 and whose family are still at the helm today – Lynn, Charlotte, Paddy and Rosy.
Magee was founded on handwoven tweed and our weaving mill located just across the river from the shop on the banks of the River Eske, is still the beating heart of everything we do.
A true destination shopping experience, at Magee of Donegal we showcase our Magee 1866 men’s and women’s collections alongside our accessories and home interiors collections – designed and made in Ireland. Our Made to Measure area offers an oasis of calm while you select the perfect combination of luxury fabrics and trims for your own tailor-made pieces.
We also showcase various complementary brands across men’s, women’s and gifts. While closed we were busy working behind the scenes, updating the store and adding new brands and spaces for customers to explore. The biggest update was moving our gifts to the ground floor, giving more room to our special selection of Irish brands.
The Weaver’s Loft Bistro* focuses on a seasonal menu and home baking and is the perfect stopover for tired shoppers. * Currently closed in line with Government restrictions.
