Don’t Worry, Bee Happy…?September 2, 2019

We’ve been scheming and plotting for months now, trying to get all of Greystones’ beautiful, smart and sexy businesses to let us know their special offers.
The idea being that, having all the town’s bargains in one bin will make life a whole lot easier for us tight-fisted Greystonians.
Who knows, it may even tempt us away from the internet. 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 get the ball rolling with what we do have. In the hope that the others will eventually copon and catch up…
Here are this week’s Greytones specials…
Firstly, big shout-out to AMOC Jewellers, who are celebrating the launch of their new website with a special 10% off exclusively for GG readers. Just use the promo code GG2019 at checkout, baby!
Over at Stan’s Garden Nursery, the plant-loving Paines have been hosting an end-of-summer sale that has many garden goodies on offer at 50% off. Given that this Jinx Hill home business is something of an institution – running for, oh, about 3,732 years – you really shouldn’t be buying your plants anywhere else. Open seven days a week, from 10am to 5.30pm.
The bould Fiona Roche has just waved bye-bye to a month of road works, and welcomed the fancy-pants L’Occitane into her Blacklion pharmacy – and to celebrate, when you buy any of their shampoos, you’ll get a free 75ml bottle of conditioner thrown in. There are loads more groovy bargains in-store too! Agréable!
Also having a major sale is Susie at Paraphernalia, the little Greystones gift shop closing its doors after 29 years on Sunday, September 22nd. It’ll be sorely missed. Until Susie starts popping up at each and every market around.
This week’s Thursday & Friday special from SuperValu sees their 70g Fresh Irish Chicken Breasts going cheep-cheap. Or half-price, to be exact, the regular €7.49 price cut to €3.74…
If it’s scoops you’re looking for, in O’Brien’s, they’re having a 50% Off sale on over 100 wines. So, you know, you can stock up for an entire week.
Next door, the Kilkenny Shop have, eh, finished their latest sale. Fret not – these guys have more sales than Des Kelly Carpets, so, there’ll be another one along in a minute.
Just up the road, on Hillside, the mighty Anne at Pretty Woman has her summer sale on, with 50% off many items, and 20% off on summer dresses. Basically, anything non-thermal.
And whilst you’re there, pop next door to Sandra, Select Interiors having a clearance sale on cotton chintz right now – just €10 a metre. Which is less than half-price, baby! Working as a freelance interior designer, if Sandra out fixing up Bono’s bordello, you can always call her on 0872414136 to check when she’ll be back.
Down in the town’s sweetest smelling shop, Brooke & Shoals, there’s the tail end a great big summer sale on at the moment, with fancy-pants handbags at half-price, and a whole rack of groovy clothes with dirty big reductions.
Lots of great deals in Lorient’s summer sale, with up to 50% off selected bags & accessories, home goodies and clearance scarves, whilst full-price jewellery and scarves are now 15% off and, yowsa, light shades have as much as 40% off. Oh, and if chilling out in the garden is your thing, there’s 25% off the last of the wind chimes. Find out more about Lorient right here.
Deep in Merdiain Point, Classic FX have their Sale Rail out, whilst Grafton Barbers are doing a Students Special – primary, secondary and third level, all start at €11.
And whilst you’re there, lots of specials in Concepts, with fancy, top-of-de-range handbags reduced from €25 to €12.99, and those smart Kafé Box designer travel cups flyin’ out of the place. With so much in this Narnia closet of a shop, best to just swing by, we reckon…
Next door, Carphone Warehouse have savings of up to €149 on their Three Bill play plans, with a free watch GT coming with their Huawei specials.
Down at Escape Boutique, their summer sale is pretty much done and dusted – unless you hurry. You can find out exactly what, where and how much they have left right here. Or, of course, you can simply swing by.
And while you’re down that way, Q Clean have a €25 special, which covers suit dry cleaned and 5 shirts laundered and pressed.
And if you’re a major tight-arse, and you want to get your Christmas shopping sorted early, for the month of September, Vincent’s will give you a €5 voucher for every €20 you spend, which can then be used in October on anything €10 or over.
On the foodie front, those clever clogs at Camile Thai have a €7.99 Lunch Special menu, full of yummy, award-winning goodness, with dishes including Stir Fry Noodles, Crispy Chili Chicken, Tom Yam & Rice, Green Curry, Fried Tofu Salad and beyond. all set in what is fast becoming the town’s favourite sun trap.
Open Wednesday to Sunday, The Bellevue Restaurant at The Horse & Hound has just introduced a new Early Bird menu from Wednesday to Saturday, 5pm to 9pm, where you can enjoy a fine 2-course meal for just €19.95. More details here.

You can also grab some groovy meal deals at Greystones’ new pizzeria, Enso offering a breakfast cazone (that’s sausage & bacon, kids) for just €6 (with a coffee: €8), or an omelette pizza for just €8, whilst for lunch, you can grab a slice and a salad for €6 or a pocket and a salad for €8.50. Also, their Firehouse pastries are just €2.50. You can check out Enso’s full menu here.

Right now, they have Stuff Pork Steak at €6.99 each, 750g of Round Steak Mince at €7 a tray (only 5% fat, people!), a range of ready meals at 3 for €18 and a 1kg bag of Chicken Goujons for just €10. Oh, and a leg of lamb is just €22. If the Flynn twins were still alive inside today, this is where they’d be…
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, feck ’em.
Talking of which, if healthy is your kick, Nature’s Gold always have goodies on the go, The Happy Pear always have groovy promotions, and you can also subscribe, from June 15th to October 20th, to Hazel & Davi’s weekly chemical-free Veggie Box, delivered every Saturday down at their Ashford farm.
