January and Christmas Sales Ireland

There was a time when the “Sales”  in Ireland didn’t begin until the New Year , January 1st  – but they have gradually been starting earlier and earlier as shopping habits in Ireland fall in line with the UK.

This year, St Stephens Day , December 26th , falls on a Tuesday and many shops will be open in Ireland. We expect many online shops to be starting their sales well before New Years Day 2024.

Most online shops usually begin their sales before Christmas Day – because online Christmas present shopping ends earlier than in stores. 

Believe it or not – Christmas Day itself is usually one of the biggest online shopping days of the year as people have vouchers to spend, time to kill and new gadgets to buy accessories for.

Here is a list of some of the best Christmas , Stephen’s Day , Boxing Day and January 2024 sales , online and in stores. .


We will try to update this post with more details as we get them.

VERY will have some special offers in the run-up to Christmas. Very (previously Littlewoods) , sell a wide range of products – womenswear, menswear, kidswear, footwear and lingerie as well as homewares, electricals, appliances, entertainment, sport and leisure, furniture, toys, gifts, jewellery.

Amazon Amazon UK usually has some good “Boxing Day” deals online. Every day from Christmas Eve until December 31st, they usually drop prices on dozens of items from Kindles,  laptops and tablets, games and mobile accessories.
