About Us

Did you know we are a Irish family-owned and run business? And the largest family-owned drinks retailer in Ireland? Not only that, we import almost all our range of over 1,000 wines directly from over 180 wineries worldwide. Many of these are family business too; our strong relationships helps us bring one of the most authentic and exciting and well-priced ranges of wine in the Irish market to our customers.

Working with local Irish suppliers of wines, beers and spirits completes our range. In our stores you’ll find the latest and most exciting collections of Irish & international gin and whiskeys, vodkas & rums and everything in between, often including exclusive launches and collaborations. Our beer range is one of the best in Ireland with over 500 world and craft beers to discover!

We have 34 stores around the country supported by our head office in Sandyford, Dublin. Our stores and website can arrange deliveries to any address in the Republic of Ireland, so consider O’Briens a one stop shop for arranging corporate gifts and drinks shopping for big occasions like weddings and parties.
