A distinctive shopping experience in the heart of downtown Victoria, the Irish Linen Stores is renowned for its superior merchandise and commitment to customer service.

Our premium collection features Irish linens of exceptional quality, one-of-a-kind sweaters of the finest wool, and an array of handkerchiefs (our most popular item!), many of them hand-embroidered in the Madeira Islands.

Irish Linen Stores was first established in 1910. In 1917 it moved to our present location at 1019 Government Street, an attractive 1884 heritage building of Italianate design where there are still the original lamp fixtures and glass cases. This year, along with Canada’s celebration of 150 years of Confederation, we are enormously proud to be celebrating 100 years at the same address on historic Government Street.

How has this locally-owned business remained a Victoria success for over a century? Little has changed over the years in our dedication to quality and customer service. Owner Maura FitzGerald Lamb, born in County Galway, returns annually to Ireland to source merchandise, bringing together the finest linens from the best producers in the world – traditional pieces from Ireland, the Madeiras and Italy as well as contemporary pieces from France and Sweden that add vibrant colour to our collection while maintaining our exceptional standards for quality.

Irish Linen is a Victoria treasure, but it also attracts returning customers from around the world who shop in-store or call our toll-free number to order from our exclusive collection.
