Nest is situated in the heart of Kenmare in Co. Kerry, Ireland and we specialise in interesting and beautiful gifts for the home and family, all hand selected for their unique charm.
I set up Nest 10 years ago and the idea was to stock the brands that I had fallen for over the years and have in my own home; Alessi, Normann Copenhagen, Marimekko. I have always been drawn to strong, bold & often colourful design which can be seen throughout our store.
Nest evolves as my life evolves so when my daughters were young, I was very focused on baby and toddler products and even stocked baby chairs! I still have a kids section with retro toys, books, and a selection of kids clothes.
Kenmare is located in the heart of the Kerry Mountains and attracts many visitors. Due to this, our outdoor clothing ranges have become more and more popular, especially our ladies ranges. This includes a lovely Danish brand, Ilse Jacobsen which does very stylish raincoats and Hunter which is famous for jackets & wellies.
I am constantly looking out for interesting small Irish companies & this is definitely an area we are continually expanding. From handmade cards to felt sheep to perfumes and jewellery, it’s easy to find an Irish made product at nest.
Our newest development is to become more environmentally aware when sourcing new products. Knowing that this will be greatly supported by our loyal customers, these products will be a growing list of interesting and exciting products in the coming years.
