We usually select our November-December winners specifically for their Christmas décor, but Daly’s ticks far more boxes than that. Not only do they have gorgeous Christmas window displays at this time of year, but their signage, lighting and beautifully painted exterior also looks great all year round. Loved by locals and visitors to the city alike for the last six decades, we love that this is a family run business in the heart of Limerick city centre, with a product range and service to rival any of the big DIY chain-stores at retail parks outside the city. They also take great pride in the street and alleyway near the store, undertaking regular clean-ups which is much appreciated by our volunteers who cover that patch.

Daly’s Hardware was founded in 1957 by Joe Daly, a member of a family steeped in hardware expertise for generations. Since then, the shop has been a steadfast presence on William Street and has become a landmark in the emotional and historical map of Limerick and a cornerstone of community engagement and personalised service. Joe sadly passed away in July of this year but was a constant presence in Daly’s until then.

Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast, a professional builder, or someone simply looking for bespoke lighting to illuminate your home, Daly’s Hardware is your ultimate destination. From top-of-the-line hardware and electrical supplies to an exceptional array of painting essentials, they don’t just stock products; they offer solutions that are a cut above the rest. Their staff are industry experts who are dedicated to offering informed advice, whatever the customer requires. To see for yourself, drop into their shop on William Street, call them on 061 416181, or visit their website or social media pages.

Daly’s Hardware and Electrical is our sixth and final winner of 2023, and will be in with a chance to be Overall Winner for 2023 at next year’s annual event, along with the January-February winner Dolans, March-April winner Rift Café, May-June winner The Flower Studio. July-August winner O’Mahonys Booksellers and September-October winners The French Table. The winner will be selected by an online vote which we will launch early in the New Year so watch this space!!
