Founded in 1962, Irish Import Shop started out as a room in an apartment, which was quickly outgrown, and moved into a storefront on Beverly Boulevard and Normandie, the hub of the Irish community in Los Angeles at that time. We have been at our present location near the corner of Melrose and Vine Street since 1988.
People enjoy the fact that walking into our homey shop feels just like being in Ireland. We play traditional Irish music and offer free Wi-Fi. Future plans include creating a little space for customers to sip on a complementary cup of Irish tea, check their emails, and chat with people from the local community. There is plenty of free parking on-site, so come and experience the feeling of fáilte. Visit us at various events through the Southland, as well.
