Specsavers Castlebar will be celebrating 10 years in business this month, having proudly served the local people of Castlebar since the store on Hopkins Road opened in 2005.

Community’s eye and ear care

Store Directors and Castlebar locals, Rachel Murphy and Niamh O’Connell, along with their team of experienced optometrists, audiologists and highly trained optical assistants, have proved an integral part of the community’s eye and ear care, bringing exceptional optical and hearcare services along with stylish yet affordable eyewear to the town.

Birthday party and fundraising coffee morning

To celebrate 10 years of Specsavers Castlebar being a part of the community, the store is holding a birthday party and fundraising coffee morning on Saturday, 2nd of May in aid of Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin. Last year, Specsavers Castlebar, along with Specsavers stores nationwide committed raising €100K in aid of a new Ophthalmology Unit at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin and having proudly raised almost €1,500 to date, the store continues to engage in fundraising activities for this much needed cause.

Mid West Radio

To get into the party spirit, Mid West Radio will broadcast the popular 'Country Classics' show from the store on Saturday, 2nd May from 10am-1pm.

Prize giveaways

There will be lots of prize giveaways throughout the day, including opportunities to win pairs of designer prescription sunglasses – perfect for these springtime rays together with a chance to scoop tickets to see Connacht take on the Ospreys at the Sportsground as part of the Guinness PRO12 series. Prize winners can choose from a fantastic range of designer prescription sunnies from brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, John Rocha, GW by Gok Wan, Jeff Banks, Cheap Monday, Missoni, Tommy Hilfiger, Karen Millen and Roxy.

Kids at Specsavers Castlebar

The festivities will continue throughout the day with in-store face painters that the kids will love. Specsavers Castlebar welcome children at all ages for both eye testing and frame selection. Our dispensing optician Ashling is available to advise parents on frame suitability and to discuss lens options for each individual prescription. At Specsavers, all glasses in the kids’ €55 range are free with an under-12s HSE optical voucher and are fitted with Specsavers SuperTough lenses.
