In 1937 a co-operative company was established to provide employment in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Ireland’s glorious West Coast.
The company was named Dubarry, after a famous French courtesan. Dubarry of Ireland’s beginnings were in the design and manufacturing of fine leather shoes. The business was fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard working craftsmen and women, and Dubarry soon developed a reputation for excellent workmanship and quality.
Dubarry’s range has expanded to include clothing and accessories, and over the year’s Dubarry has grown an international sourcing network, working closely with carefully selected partners who share the same high standards and desire to work with the best of components, raw materials and unique designs. Dubarry of Ireland have achieved great success and plaudits, but have never lost sight of the company’s heritage, of which we are immensely proud. Dubarry footwear and clothing is admired, desired and enjoyed around the world, but it is to our magnificent homeland, people and landscapes that we look to for inspiration.
