BOUTIQUE OPTICAL is a new concept in Opticians retailing.
Operating in a luxurious private consultation room, we offer eye examinations and style consultations to discerning clients on a 1-to-1 basis. Relax in plush surroundings and try on our exclusive and high-quality boutique spectacle frames and sunglasses.

What do you get if you cross a design engineer with an optician? I'm not entirely sure, but this is me! 15 years as an executive in industry working with quality materials and manufacturing processes had given me a good technical grounding, but I wanted to expand my career further. Leaning on my interest in healthcare and my passion for design, I chose to become an Optician! Only the best would do so I trained and worked as an Optometrist at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London. Living in one the world's fashion capitals, I was submerged in the world of optical haute-couture . 

Back home working as an Optometrist in Ireland, I've had so many friends tell me they couldn't find the fashionable eyewear they sought, or that their glasses were breaking far too easily, and so I took the decision to open Boutique Optical.  Combining boutique brands from around the world, unavailable anywhere else in Ireland,  with the highest quality lenses available on the market I want to make the very best of independent, bespoke, sophisticated eyewear available to the people of Galway and the surrounding area. 


" Bringing expert eyecare & boutique eyewear to people who value luxury and exclusivity, with discerning taste for exceptionally high quality spectacles, sunwear, and sportswear. "
