Petmania has a wide array of perks, discounts and additional services that will certainly make a trip to their store very worthwhile.

We think that this is an especially excellent place for pet owners because they offer a pet care advice center. They provide various information resources on pet care which included articles about adoption to caring for aging pets .

Under this category as well, they even have puppy class and a puppy club which guides new owners with information about their young dog’s health, diet, grooming and more.

We also really appreciate that their knowledge and expertise links well with the range of items they have in-store. They have a lot of items for dogs, cats, small animals and even a very impressive range of fish filters.

If owners don’t know which item to pick, we like that their team of experts would be very competent in helping you select the right products for your pet.

In terms of payment, we like that they do have a click-and-collect option and a free delivery option for orders over € 29. However, in terms of using their gift cards, we do wish that it could be used in purchasing products from their website.

Petmania is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a pet shop that can offer both high quality products and solid advice when it  comes to pet care.


  • Pet care advice center perfect for first time owners
  • Has options for click and collect and free delivery for orders over € 29
  • Excellent range of products
  • Offers a pet grooming service


  • Price of grooming services may vary depending on the dog’s coat condition

Customer Reviews

Efficient and Friendly

I have been in this shop a few times over the past few days and I am overwhelmed by the whole atmosphere in the shop. It is so efficient and friendly. I was so impressed that I booked one of my 3 German Shepherd dogs in with the grooming shop there. She looks totally different and even  more beautiful than before she was groomed there. Petmania is absolutely awesome and brilliant. Very highly recommend. -Hodoku Canine Behavioral Consultants

Knowledgeable and Helpful Staff

A trusted pet store that covers a lot of ground with its various branches, Petstop is the way to go in terms of buying the best essentials for your furry companion.

Established in 1995, they have accumulated a wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to providing a very helpful customer experience. What we like about them is their range of stock extends to over 7,000 products in a variety of categories.

This includes trusted breed specific dog food to cat flea and worm treatments. They are a very reliable option if you’re looking for a good selection of tried and trusted pet items.

Additionally, we really like that their range extends to be more inclusive with products for small animals. Aside from products for rabbits and hamsters, they also have a good amount of tunnels, dishes and pet bedding for animals like chinchillas or degus.

We highly recommend them if you’re looking for pet products for smaller animals.

However, we’d like to note that some of these items on their website are only available for click-and-collect in store. In this case, these can be limiting for those who want these products delivered.

What we also like about Petstop is the delivery and subscription service customers can avail of. It makes it very convenient for customers who repurchase items regularly as well as more affordable for customers who spend over € 20.

A visit to Petstop may also benefit those who would like to pamper their dog a little as they also offer a dog grooming service. However, keep in mind that one appointment is limited to one dog only – this can be limiting for owners with multiple dogs.

In the end, Petstop is a wonderful place to check out if you’re looking for a well-established pet store.


  • Subscription service is perfect for repeat purchases
  • Great selection of products for smaller pets
  • Efficient delivery service
  • Also offers a dog spa service


  • Some items are click and collect only
  • Single dog appointment for grooming service

Customer Reviews

Friendly and Helpful Staff

I was in the store earlier and was served by such a lovely and friendly girl Charlotte, that it completely transformed my day. She was so bubbly it really costs nothing to be nice and she is living proof of that. She helped me find the product I needed for my little fur baby and gave loads of helpful advice. Given that other stores lack customer service, her manager should be very proud. -Tracey Keogh

Gave Great Advice

Great selection of products. The staff member Martin in Limerick, knows his stuff when it comes to fish. So if your in the mindset for starting a fish tank set up, be it goldfish or tropical. He will help you get it all up and running. -Daniel Wadhams

There are many advantages in terms of selection, shipping and brands, which makes Maxi Zoo an attractive option for a pet store worth committing to.

A big selling point we see from them is their fantastic in-store customer experience. They welcome all types of pets in-store and what’s more is that they allow products to be tried on directly.

This, with their available expert advice, makes a shopping experience with them all the more pleasant. If you’re looking for an experience that allows you to choose products alongside your pet, Maxi Zoo is the way to go.

Specifically, if you’re looking for collars, clothing and particular enclosure sizes, bringing your pet in-store will definitely help in decision making.

As part of the Fressnapf Group, they have access to a wide assortment of pet products. What’s even more impressive is that they have 13 exclusive brands like Select Gold and Real Nature.

We also highly recommend them if you’re looking for a pet store with a lot of options in terms of bulk pet food buying.

What’s different about their product selection is that they have two unique categories available under terra and garden pond items. Included in this category are items for terrarium lighting and heat sources to squirrel food.

If you’re looking for terrarium and garden equipment, Maxi Zoo has a great selection available. What we would like to forewarn is that their delivery shipping requires a minimum order totalling to € 19. 

In the end, if you’re looking for unique pet product categories alongside exclusive and high quality pet brands, Maxi Zoo is the way to go.


  • Allow pets in store to even try the products
  • Good amount of options for dog food in bulk sizes
  • Has product ranges for terrariums and gardens
  • Flexible return policy


  • Only able to contact them through phone on weekdays
  • Minimum order price for delivery

A pet store that provides a very niche and focused range of products, Greyhound and Pet World is your definite go-to for all your competition supply needs.

They have over 20 years of experience and expertise particularly in the realm of Greyhound care. We highly recommend them if you’re looking for supplies and advice on this breed’s training, feeding and even skin problems.

They have a particular category of products that cater to Greyhound supplies. These include items like muzzles, compression suits and even supplements.

Greyhound and Pet World is also the main licensed distributor for Oceanfeed Greyhound+ across Ireland. It’s a great option if you’re looking for feed material packed with tons of nutrient benefits.

If you’re a greyhound owner who also participates in competitions and training, we really like the depth and range of products that they offer.

On the other hand, their pet supply range for other types of animals like cats is more limited. They do still have items for litter freshening and fleas maintenance but this may not be the store for you if you’re looking for a wider selection.

Additionally, they also have an approved offering of pet transport which is perfect for those looking for a safe and accredited service.

Greyhound and Pet World is a fantastic option for greyhound owners out there looking for expert advice and very specific products.


  • Highly experienced and knowledgeable with Greyhounds
  • Main licensed distributor for Greyhound+
  • Responsive customer service
  • Also has a service for pet transport


  • More limited pet product range
  • Free shipping only qualifies for orders above € 100 and is not applicable to bulk food items

Customer Reviews

Highly Recommended for Pet Transport

Greyhound and Pet world recently arranged and transported a dog over to the UK for me.  They were so helpful especially Liam who put up with all my questions.  Tony the transporter kept the new owners updated and the dog arrived safe and sound.  Absolutely delighted would definitely recommend if anyone is looking to transport a dog abroad.  Can’t thank you all enough.  The dog and owners and myself are over the moon. -Jo Bolton

Fast Shipping and Great Customer Care

I’m delighted with the waterproof coat that we purchased from Greyhound & Pet World. We tested it out in a hailstorm and my big guy was snug and cozy in this coat (excellent quality, thank you!) We’ll definitely do business again in future and I would highly recommend their service. Fast shipping, friendly and knowledgeable customer care and a superb product. -Katelynn Hermann

While not strictly a pet store, The Range offers a good alternative when it comes to shopping for pet products.

They are primarily a home goods store that offers a wide variety of products from home furnishing to appliances to clothing. 

They first opened in 1989 and have since expanded to over 200 stores, including items for pet care, medicine and cleaning as one of their categories.

What makes them stand out in this sense is that they are the perfect option if you’re buying household products alongside your things for pet care. The Range is a great option for a convenient one-stop-shop.

We find the categories for their pet range to be solidly comprehensive. This includes but is not limited to items for dogs, kittens, small pets, fish and birds. 

They even have various options for animal coops and hutches. Additionally, they do have an excellent range as well for pet medicine like tank solutions and flea sprays.

We do however recognize that if you’re looking for more specialized products alongside advice regarding pet care this may not be the right place to visit. 

In terms of payment forms they accept, because it’s a larger structured store, we find the range to be encompassing, even accepting payment through Klarna and Clearpay.

The Range is a solid choice if you’re looking for a more accessible place to purchase your pet’s needs.


  • Has pet products for cats and dogs as well as small animals
  • Offers household items too
  • Great selection of pet hutches and coops
  • Wide range of payment options


  • May be more limited in terms of more specialized pet products
  • Gift cards can’t be used for online payment
