Welcome to Gilna Opticians

Providing unbeatable service since 1951.

Its always good to see you!

At Gilna Opticians we provide a wide range of services and boast

an extensive collection of Designer Eyewear.

There’s a lot to be said about our three stores,

but its the local community that made us what we are.

Our customers are some of the most loyal around,

and some can even tell you about their first pair of glasses they got

at Gilna’s over 40 years ago.

Providing you with a professional yet personal service like no other..

All of our Eye Exams are carried out by professional Optometrists in a comfortable environment. After your exam is done, our Dispensing Opticians will guide you in the right direction when it comes to choosing the perfect frame, and lenses to suit your everyday needs.

In Three different locations..

All three stores are conveniently located. Our Thomas St. Branch is located in the heart of The Liberties, while our IFSC Branch is easily accessible from the city centre. For those who live a little further out, our Clontarf Branch is a 20 minute bus journey from the city centre, and a 10 minute walk from Clontarf dart station.

All I can say is “Wow”. I had an appointment for an eye test at 12.30pm. Half an hour later I am back in work, suddenly able to see a whole lot better!
Austin and Terry looked after me, the test was very comprehensive, they fully grasped what I was looking for, which was contact lenses. I received a couple of pairs to try, as well as help in putting them in and removing them.
Going to get your eyes tested could be an ordeal, however today was great, I am delighted with such a wonderful service, and I will be sticking with Gilna Opticians”
