Nice for ideas.

I always try and go here first when I'm shopping in town. I do this for a few reasons: firstly I like the atmosphere in here and I love how the items are displayed. There really is no where else in cork like brown thomas. The second reason I go here first is after looking at the price tags here everything else in every other store seems like a bargain! Picked up a little Lulu Guiness bag for 325 and laughed out loud. Lots of the home items can be found in txmax for a fraction of the cost.... Read more...

In my opinion i think this shop is lovely to browse in but i rarely buy anything here as it is so expensive. The make up counters are fantastic but the prices are too high for my budget. even when i got a gift of a voucher for this store i still had to add money to it to make a purchase. Love the orla kiely bags and the prada bags but guess i will have to stay with the budget shops unless i win the lotto soon..wishful thinking!... Read more...

I actually think this is an excellent shop. Yes they are expensive, but the quality and fashion that is on sale here is excellent. Most staff are very friendly, although some can be rude to younger people or those taht they think may not be able to spend mega bucks here. It is a great place to shop for the gilfriend, she loves most stuff here. It is a designer style shop that stocks lots of stuff, from jewellery to bags to shoes to cooking things. They also have arange of makeups, including MAC... Read more...

I find that it is very expensive, for example in the bookcorner, a copy of Bentley Brooklands was priced at 150 Euros...... :-0 . There is ample space in here for the company to display its products. I find that the shop assistants, particularly the older women (with a superiority complex) , are constantly watching out customers..acting like school teachers to a bold child.....to say that certain sectors of society should not be in the shop. On one occasion I notice a small group of... Read more...

I usually only go into the clothes and shoe areas in here to browse, a lot of things in there are not the most affordable. Things do get well reduced in the sales though. I love the homewares section on the top floor though. They have opened a Nespresso boutique there as well. If you're like really nice coffee and are interested in getting one of these machines, they will give you a demonstration and make a sample coffee for you. Just like George Clooney! ... Read more...

Modern luxury

I love going into Brown Thomas, even though most of the products there are expensive and high-end. You can find some reasonable items though. The sale is usually great, especially for homewares. The ground floor layout is lovely, with a good selection of cosmetic counters and a luxury department store atmosphere. The homewares department is not good as it used to be, but has some nice things, some good value, some very expensive. Staff there are not very friendly however, one even so careless... Read more...

Staff are lacking

Report

by: grainne H. 2 out of 5

I like brown thomas and do visit it every time i shop in cork. it is very well laid out. My only real problem is that the staff are not the most helpful or attentive. I shopped there about a month ago and was looking for shoes for a wedding. I found the perfect shoes but spent nearly 10 minutes waiting for someone to help me. I do understand they were busy but the staff walked passed me many times without even acknowledging me.... Read more...

l love browsing around here, with browsing being the operative word. lt is very well laid out. There is an excellent selection of make-up counters with very helpful assistants. However l very rarely buy anything unless l get a great sale bargain. The clothes are way too expensive ok they will probably last a life-time but my budget would never stretch that far. lf l had a good lotto win l would treat myself here. Well a girl can dream !!...

My first stop when I win the lotto

by: Jessica O. 5 out of 5

This is a really beautiful department store. The building itself is lovely and the layout is bright and spacious. The makeup department on the ground floor is excellent. It stocks pretty much all major brands and the staff are polite, helpful and very well trained. The clothing, lingerie and bag departements are lovely to wander around and dream about what you'll buy when you win the lotto. I love the shoe department and often go in just to dream and look at the beautiful shoes. I have never... Read more...

This is a nice, well laid out department store. The only thing I buy here is make up as everything else is a bit above my price range sadly. That said - the make up counters & choice of ranges is fantastic from mac to cinique and many more. The staff are great - many of them are trained make up artists and offer great advice & trials. Even though I only buy make up I often go there to lust after the fab designer outfits, shoes & handbags. Their kitchen stuff are gorgeous but... Read more...

Plush department store with something for everyone. Makeup department is fantastic. Womens wear has a nice selection of everything you could wish for. Sales are great value and you can sign up to pre-sale events which gives you first pick of reduced items. Homeware section is lovely with some unusual gift ideas. I especially like the doorman who opens the front door in top hat and tails for you. Brown Thomas is a nice little escapism even if you are budgeting in these recessionary... Read more...

I remember when this used to be Cashes and when people would ask you 'if you got a fifty girl' if you stood outside it waiting for someone! a great branch of brown thomas, a real treat to even just go in for a browse if you dont have the money to spend. if i do have the money to spend there is nothing i like more than to go in and get my make up, and nails done before heading off out for the night. a fantastic way to treat the girlie-you!...
