Our story

Number Eight was established in November 2009 by Gillian Quinn, who was motivated to bring quality and value to the people of Galway. With a love of designer items and not the price tags, the concept of Number Eight began. We started in one small room in the suburbs delightfully filling this space with all kinds of gems and characters.

With this came a love of pairing the right item to the right person and witnessing the delight on the founders face. And we just kept growing… now please to say we have our own city centre large store filled with as many high quality Preloved and new items as we can find! With the added mens, wellness and beauty sections in recent years, shopping at number eight is now even more interesting with something for everybody.

What a journey we have been on, making mistakes, creating joyful and incredible memories and constantly learning and striving to be more and deliver even bigger and better... THANK YOU for being part of our journey... much gratitude xx



Gillian began this business in 2009 in a recession bringing preloved sustainable fashion to Galway for customers to buy and sell their fashion to make some cash or simply update their wardrobe without any great cost. We are so thrilled to have expanded and grown so much throughout the years. Let the journey continue...

"I would describe myself as a pocketrocket, small but full of beans as my mother would say. I love to meet new people socialise and an odd dance off. I would be energetic, creative and bubbly, always want people to feel happy and comfortable"

So make sure to pop in store and she will do her best to help you with whatever you are looking for.



Hello all, my name is Saoirse. I like to attribute my outgoing personality, and love of dressing unique to being a typical Leo. My outfits and make up all depend on what music I’ve listened to that morning, although the usual culprit being Bowie, which makes for very mismatched patterns and colours. Sustainability and finding your own style through unique pieces, is something that I’m very passionate about, so working for number eight is a dream, and seeing how others style pieces is what keeps me inspired.



I’m a lover of vintage clothes, platform boots, designer handbags and two piece suit moments! I also think it is very important to ask before you buy! Fast fashion is the second worst polluter to our environment after the oil industry. So I believe buying preloved is a must, as us consumers have the power, our choices can lead to real change! You will always see me on the dance floor, no matter what the occasion is! I love working the digital aspects of Number Eight and helping the customers pick out outfits! 

I hope to pursue a career in Textile Design or as a Stylist Director. I am passionate about colours, materials and fashion. I am highly motivated, ambitious and a creative individual. 

Mwah mwah!
