Greystones Shops 1922

Since we were examing the new shops in Greystones we decided to visit the library and look for any information on what Greystones looked like in the early 1900s. We found a book called ‘A Guide to Greystones’ printed in 1922.

Here are some of the shops we found. We have found out what some of these building are today. 


The Gold Hotel on Portland Road no longer exists.


Braemar Private Hotel/Lewis’ Hotel. St Brigids School replaced this.


The Railway Hotel is now the Burnaby Hotel.


The Stanley Stores is now Fenton Fires.


Scotts pharmacy now Glennans pharmacy


J Mc Kenzie’s is now Mooneys

Ferns is now Poppies.

Moore & Co is now Iretons

McFarland’s Tea was at the Burnaby Stores.

You could get a car at Greystones Motor opposite Railway Station.

Hare Builders coach paints and general contractors were at Clonallan Villa.


Edwards and Co sold high class groceries and provisions.

Furnished and unfurnished homes could be supplied by Rochford Doyle Auctioneer
