Greystones Library Springs Into ActionApril 16, 2021
Phase 2 Of New N11 Corridors CommencesApril 15, 2021
Given that bastarding Amazon, just about every Greystones shop that isn’t relying on coffee or food has a sale on these days.
Pretty much every single day of the year.
With this in mind, we thought having all the town’s bargains in one bin would make life a whole lot easier for all the tight-fisted Greystonians out there.
These people are our neighbours, after all, many of them attempting to make their living by providing the town with a service, a treat, or maybe even a good time.
So, the hope is, listing all the bargains around Greystones might tempt you away from the Bezosland. And Dundrum.
Naturally, being Greystones, it’s proven pretty darn impossible to get all our shop owners to get their sales acts together, so, we reckon the best thing to do is simply post here the ones we can unearth.
If you know where to look, there are sales all over town. Here are some of the most recent Greystones specials…
The bould Sheena Griffin has a 1-Hour Outdoor Photo Session special right now – normally €225, and coming with a 12×10 fine art framed print, you can grab one of these family portrait sessions for just €150. Noice.
If you’ve got kids, and you kinda love them, even just a little bit, you might want to check out Greystones mum Vicky Noble’s DluluKaloo, which is all about everlasting wooden toys. You can rent or buy these classic creations, with two specials currently available – any 3-month rental sign-ups in April comes with an extra month free, and any pre-orders or purchases comes with a 10% discount if you simply mention the mighty Greystones Guide. And make sure you include the word mighty. BLOOM!
This week’s groovy deals at Daly’s SuperValu include Thorton’s Classic Chocolates, reduced from €7.50 to just €3, and plants at 2 for €5…

If you’re a fan of ridiculously good bargains, and you’ve exhausted Vincent’s, you’ll be glad to know that one day a month Kilcoole turns into bargain town, as the already-cheap-as-chorizo Thrift Shop have their monthly First Tuesday half-price sale. When they’re back in the room, of course.
And if WiFi at home has been a problem, hey, no more loitering in cafés all day, my fat, freeloading friend – Jody Connaughton will get your whole house pingin’ for just €150…

Oh, and don’t forget the in-car collection option.
Oh, and we would normally round-up the specials at faceless corporate giant Tesco, but, given that they’re still shitting on their long-term employees– and they’re now packaging their pastries in plastic boxes – feck ’em. Feck ’em real good.
Up at Farrelly’s in Delgany, right now they have… well, we’re not entirely sure. Padraig and Anthony are supposed to email us weekly, but, so far, nada. Still, you can be sure of daily bargains at this award-winning butchers, baby!
Talking of which, if healthy is your kick, Nature’s Gold always have goodies on the go, and The Happy Pear always have groovy promotions – so many, in fact, it’s hard for us to keep up. So, just pop in.
We update daily on the town’s specials, kids. So, y’all check back now.
