Brian S Nolan


Brian S Nolan first opened its doors in Anglesea Buildings in Dun Laoghaire in 1983 but Brian S’ background in furnishings goes right back to the days of the Belfast Linen Company, where he began his career in 1949. 

Three decades later, Brian S was the Furnishings Director for the Nicholls group of stores and was based in their flagship store, McCullaghs, in Dun Laoghaire. He resigned in 1983 to set up his own business with Brian P. 

Sixteen years later, Brian S Nolan had established itself as an institution throughout the Dun Laoghaire borough. In 1999 the shop re-located to the old Royal Bank of Ireland building at 102 Upper George’s Street greatly expanding the floor area and making Brian S Nolan the largest family‑run furnishing store of its kind in Ireland.

It was all hands on deck for the initial set up in 1983. Brian S, his wife Rosaleen and their three children - Fionnuala, Jonathan & Brian P with various friends and old colleagues helping out too. Over 40 years later the Brian S Nolan family has grown through the extended family of managers, consultants and office, manufacturing and fitting support staff. 

Brian P and his wife Christine are now the driving force behind Brian S Nolan and its expansion which has included re‑development of the premises in 2007, and the expansion of the business into the corporate and hospitality sectors. The extended Brian S Nolan family includes two managers – Ken McDarby who oversees the shop and Sara Healy who manages the office. We are extremely proud of all our staff and their relationships with our customers and clients.
