ALAIN & CHRISTINE'S
A FAMILY BUSINESS
Alain and Christine's... half wine shop and half card shop and truly a great place to explore if you are visiting Kenmare in Co. Kerry. Formerly known at Eugene's, this business has been family run since 1905. Today it stands proudly on Henry Street in the heart of Kenmare. It is the No.1 destination for exceptional wines, original cards and special gifts.
wine, cards and so much more
We are well on the way with the rebranding of our shop and will update the progress in due course. It has been a very exciting journey!
In the card shop Christine continues to add new ranges, including a Celtic design range that in quality and design are really beautiful. With Christmas just around the corner an original collection of Christmas cards and gifts are now available.
We are very excited with all the new wines Alain has sourced during the past year to add to his extensive collection. Bio-dynamically produced wines from small, very passionate and knowledgeable producers.
