Our History


First Pharmacy

Denis moved to Galway and took ownership of the pharmacy in Spiddal Village, a small seaside village in Connemara with a vibrant, friendly community.  The name Spiddal is thought to have come from Ospidéal, meaning hospital, named after a hospital within the village many centuries ago.   Walsh’s of Spiddal specializes in jewellery, gifts, photo-processing, biometric passport service, veterinary products and much more. With the support of the community and loyal customers, Denis has continued to expand his family-owned business through the West of Ireland.


Second Pharmacy

Denis opened his second pharmacy in Loughrea, which sits on the shores of a large, beautiful limestone lake in County Galway. The people of Loughrea have seen huge changes since Walsh’s set up in 1999, but it hasn’t changed the warmth, friendliness and good-humour of the community.  Walsh’s of Loughrea is particularly known for its large selection of perfumes, a comprehensive range of skincare products (including The Body Shop and the fabulous Moo Goo range), watches, jewellery, biometric passport service and our great prices all year round.


Third Pharmacy

Open Sundays and Bank Holidays (except Christmas Day, St. Stephen’s Day and Easter Sunday) Denis opened another pharmacy in the Orantown Centre in Oranmore; a busy pharmacy renowned for its large selection of vitamins and supplements. Walsh’s in Oranmore also stocks alternative/complementary medicines and skin care ranges including: La Roche-Posay, Vichy, Pestle & Mortar, Bioderma, Kinvara, MooGoo, Aveeno and Seavite. Our staff are fully trained to advise on skin care and make-up, and are also trained in nutrition / alternative medicine, and we have a homeopath on hand.  Pharmacy services also include a large photo lab with photo processing, a biometric passport service, compression stockings, blood pressure check, flu vaccinations, prescription dosage systems, emergency contraception, smoking cessation and more. Walsh’s Pharmacy in the Orantown Shopping Centre is open on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays as well as having late opening hours Monday to Friday.


Fourth Pharmacy

A fourth pharmacy opened at the Spiddal Medical Centre in 2006.  This Pharmacy is dedicated to customer satisfaction, service and value.  It is located on the same site as the Medical Centre, so there is no extra stop in order to fill a prescription.  The Pharmacy has a good selection of toiletries and other necessary items and, like all the other Walsh’s Pharmacies, is synonymous with excellence in healthcare, advice and service.  


Fifth Pharmacy

Open Sundays and Bank Holidays (except Christmas Day, St. Stephen’s Day and Easter Sunday) Our latest Pharmacy is located in the Corrib Shopping Centre in the heart of Galway City – joining Walsh’s Pharmacy Group in 2015.  We can fill your prescription, recommend the best vitamins / minerals for your needs, find that perfect gift for a special person, assess your skin care needs and/or have a private consultation with your Pharmacist . . . and much, much more. We have a biometric passport service on site and can email your passport photo to you.  This is a family pharmacy in the centre of Galway City. Walsh’s Pharmacy in the Corrib Shopping Centre is open on Saturdays, Sunday’s and Bank Holidays as well as having late opening hours on Thursdays and Fridays. ”
