‘Making it personal since 1947’

Who are we?

Located in the heart of Kilrea, we are an independent business that have been serving our local community since 1947. When the McCloy family retired in 2002, responsibility for developing the business was taken on by Stephen Slaine who continued to build upon the excellent service that they provided to their community.

What makes McCloys Kilrea different?

We are far from your average pharmacy. After buying Dunlop’s butcher shop next door with its gorgeous Ballycastle black stone façade and expanding McCloys, we wanted to put a truly unique stamp on the corner of the Diamond. With our impressive original restored exterior brickwork and two thirty-six bulb chandeliers in our double story entrance way, we want every single person that crosses our threshold to feel like they’ve walked into a truly special and unique shopping experience.

 McCloys truly is a treasure trove of gorgeous gifts, from jewellery to handbags, perfumes and everything in between. We are stockists of leading brands in the fashion, fragrance, skincare and jewellery worlds, such as Nomination, Rebecca, Clarins, Pilgrim, Tipperary Crystal, L’Oreal, Voduz, and the list could go on for miles.

Our online adventures:

2020 proved itself to be a year that was certainly out of the ordinary, and we felt that August 2020 was the perfect time to launch our online website for click & collect. Now in Spring 2021, we have finally launched our UK wide delivery service for amazing jewellery and gifting brands.

Our website allows you to browse our fantastic selection of gifts, select them for click and collect or delivery and have them gift wrapped with our complimentary gift-wrapping service.

We strive to go to exceptional lengths to meet the needs for gifting for our customers, with our complimentary gift-wrapping services focusing on the finishing touches to make your gift extra special. We hope that you leave us wanting to return, time and time again, either instore or online.

Who am I?

My name is Rachel, Stephen’s daughter and I’ve been working in McCloys since I was little girl. Working on Saturdays, summers and Christmas’s while I was at school and during my time at university when I studied French & Spanish, I’ve only left McCloys for brief periods of time such as my year abroad in Mallorca, and last year when I took the plunge for a year down under in Australia before the events that would shape 2020 and beyond took a hold of the world and I boomeranged right back into the country.

I have a passion for all things beauty and fashion and rest assured that I buy 99.9% of the items we stock for ‘market research’, (the word shopaholic comes to mind…). You’ll certainly be seeing a lot more of me in the coming weeks, months and years on our social media accounts for those who don’t already know me!

Not only is McCloys a family business, but rest assured that our tight-knit group of staff are all like family too and we’d love for you to become a part of our extended McCloys family!

To sum us up in a nutshell:

It’s our staff. It’s our range of goods. It’s our gift wrapping. It’s our personal service. It’s the heritage. It’s the building. It’s the family business.
