Anniversary Sale Celebrating 25 years of business on Oliver Plunkett St. !

Following the runaway success of our last giveaway competition we are delighted to announce another great prize, this time courtesy of our friends at the Fine Bedding Co. 🙂 For many years they have been the market leader in terms of product innovation and their duvets and pillows are designed with one purpose – to give you a great  night’s sleep!Unknown-2Again, all you have to do is skip over to our Facebook page, SHARE & LIKE the competition and you may be our lucky winner.

Unknown-1The “Spundown” duvet uses the latest ‘Smartfil’ fibres and these are incredibly soft and light to give you exceptional warmth without weight. Choose from a 13.5 tog, a 10.5 tog or a 7.0 tog. What makes the   “Spundown” duvet unique is that ALL SIZES up to super-king are washable at home in a   domestic machine at a temperature of 60deg. This is the temperature required to kill dust-mites and many of those other nasty bugs that cause asthma & other related conditions.

Neighbours have come and gone…

25 years ago, over the course of the May Bank Holiday Weekend, Household Linens packed up all their stock and moved to their present location at 118 Oliver Plunkett St. If anyone knows where those 25 years have gone – please let us know ! We plan to celebrate by giving away some great prizes with great offers across all our bedding ranges so do stay tuned in to our Facebook page and ‘Like’ to be kept informed. Having opened our doors in 1990 we want to be around for another 25 years with your help ! 🙂


Sadly, many of our neighbours haven’t lasted the course… 😦 We remember good neighbours & friends like “Young Ireland” schoolwear & “Regency Interiors”, “Acme Blinds” & “O’Connor Shoes”… Others have just had an identity crisis ! Our closest neighbours in “The Oliver Plunkett” bar were previously known as “Scotts of Caroline St.” and before that “The Black Bush” but it’s always a lively spot as is “The Ovens Bar” across the road, previously named “The Ovens Tavern”; that was back in the day when trams left the nearby yards for all points west.


All aboard for Household Linens 25th. Anniversary Sale !

We have some great memories of 1990… First of all, we had a heatwave that summer, the first really good summer in many many years. Then of course we had Italia 90 (and who can forget that penalty shoot-out!), Mary Robinson was elected President, another President – Melson Mandela visited Ireland, Cork won the double in hurling & football (c’mob the Rebels), the Irish One Pound Coin was introduced and “The Field” starring Richard Harris was released. We would love to hear of your stories and memories of that year so why not share them with us on our Facebook page and we might even give a prize for the best story !

We’re certainly glad to welcome the longer brighter evenings that are upon us, and with April beginning tomorrow,the Spring arrivals are in full swing. This week, we are proud to display a beautiful set from the Actil range of bed-linen on our double display bed at the back of the store. Killara and Belrose are both eye-catching floral designs in wonderful crisp cotton, and, as we have discovered, they can be mixed and matched to create a very cheerful bed. Check them both out on in our image gallery.

We also have four much loved traditional designs in stock again from the Country Diary range by Belledorm. These include a pretty Poppy design (currently on display in the front window here), and a more funky version of Kalamkari, a well-known design for many years.

If you’re looking for a bargain, we also have a dresser full of Belledorm polycotton easycare sheets in four different colours. There’s up to 50% off, starting at only €8.50 for a single fitted sheet.

Here’s to bright evenings, Spring weather that allow us lines full of washing to dry in the sun, and a comfy bed to retire to at the end of the day. Until the next post..!


March Update 2014

“The time is flying!” seems to be the words on everyone’s lips these days. Yes, it’s March already, and Patrick’s weekend is behind us. We’re quite  glad to see Spring in full swing as it brings deliveries of new stock with it. Damask from Sheridan is back again by popular demand and available at discounted prices. This classic duvet set appeals to all ages and while neutral enough to suit most bedrooms, its warm golden tone makes it stand out from other damask prints. We also have a new range of towels from Deyongs in five colours. The teal and seafoam (duck-egg in lay terms!) sets are proving popular amongst the staff-but you will also find cream, magenta and mocha colours in the range.
