Tara Gift Shoppe , WNY's Original Irish Import shop, is located in the Irish Heritage District of South Buffalo. Founded in 1980, and named after the Hill of Tara, the store opened to provide the community with a selection of Irish goods. It has doubled its retail floor space since its beginning. Our inventory includes the finest Ireland offers: Belleek, Royal Tara, Condron Knitwear, Solvar, O'Connor, Fado and Shanore jewelry, knitwear for adults as well as children, collectibles, music and so much more.
The shop draws customers from across the country as they stop in to reminisce or check out the "old neighborhood". Our friendly and knowledgeable staff make the customer feel as though they were family. Our website will provide our customers a way to reach us when a visit is not possible.
Owned by Mary Heneghan whose father was from Kilmihil, Co. Clare and her husband Tom of Kilmaine, Co. Mayo; Tara is staffed by family and friends, the shoppe provides the community with a checkpoint for all things Irish. From concert information to hiring a piper, the answer can usually be found at the Tara Gift Shoppe.
