Michael Guiney's Ltd, more commonly known and referred to as Guiney's is an Irish department store founded in June 1971. The store specialises in homewares, menswear, womenswear and children's clothing. They have 10 stores in the Republic of Ireland located in Dublin, Limerick, Waterford, Castlebar, Tralee, Cork, Clonmel, Mullingar and Kilkenny.[1] The company was established in 1971. It is well known for having its three Dublin stores within sight of each other - one on North Earl Street and two on Talbot Street, which run directly into each other off O'Connell Street. The company was solely Dublin based from 1971 until 1992, when a branch in Cork was opened. Other branches followed in Tralee and Waterford (2004).

The Limerick store was opened in late 2004, occupying the long vacant anchor tenancy of what was previously the Williamscourt Mall on William Street. The Castlebar store opened in December 2008. A store was opened in Clonmel in December 2013. Guineys launched their online store in 2012 which delivers to homes and businesses in the Republic of Ireland, and the Mullingar and Kilkenny stores opened in 2015.

Guineys also own the shop DenimBar, which specializes in young men's fashion. They have 4 DenimBar shops - Dublin, Clonmel, Limerick, Kilkenny and an online store - www.denimbar.ie.[2]
