About Us


Burgess Department Store, Ireland's longest established department store, first opened its doors in 1839 in Athlone and from that day to this, the service and range found in every department has made the store a magnet for shoppers throughout the Midlands. Burgess celebrates the tradition of a true department store with passionate specialists who have a hungry eye for what's new and now. From Ladies and Men's fashion to Footwear and from Children & Lingerie to Home, at Burgess you'll find the finest brands in all Departments.


You don't thrive for over a century without striving for more. And that's exactly what we offer at Burgess. It's another level of service brought to life with extras like personal shopping service, gifting ideas and a range that's filled with the interesting and the unusual. Located on Athlone's main shopping thoroughfare, Church Street, Burgess combines contemporary fashion and style with a sense of heritage.
