 Hazel Nuts About Vintage

As a shop that specialises in second hand clothes, jewellery and records we offer sustainable shopping.  

Our feedback over the last few years has been that national and international visitors of all ages are really  interested in shopping sustainably and embracing second hand and vintage for their own wardrobe and for gifts.  They also really want to support independent, locally owned retail wherever they go.  

This year alone we’ve been featured in Irish Country Living magazine and Hot Press Best of Ireland.  

Hazel Nuts about Vintage can be found in Killarney Town Centre, 1 Bohereencael Glebe, Plunkett Street and is a wonderful supporter and member of our community here in the Killarney Chamber of Tourism & Commerce.
