High Society

Lower Abbeygate Street

Review by Krystal, Jan 2008: Good Selection

Good selection, good price... good selection of toys, the best shop for bondage gear,

Staff just left me to it until I approached them. Don't have to ring a bell or anything for entry, (Oh, and the sales assistant was incredibly good looking!) Ranks 2nd.

Thanks to Bellinda, May 2006: Cheery Shop

The proprietor was really nice and explained all kinds of stuff, there was plenty of choice of toys, DVDs, videos, and even kinky underwear. I would have thought this would be embarrassing, but it really wasn't.

The guy explained the workings of all sorts of gadgets, including vibrators and all kinds of things for men. The selection is really good, and my friends tell me that it's price wise the best in Galway too.

All in all: Cheery shop on three floors, huge selection, nice guy working there (good looking too! ;-) ) - not the least bit sleazy, I give it a definite thumbs up!



Jade Winters

Unit 3
Liosbaun industrial estate
Tuam Road

2pm-2am News May 2008: Cinema

Hit the news with claims that there is a cinema on the premises showing unclassified films. There are also video viewing booths

Review by Krystal, Jan 2008: Aimed More at Guys

Huge selection of DVDS, some lingerie (in some larger sizes), reasonable selection of toys, but everything seems to be slightly overpriced. No bondage gear (unless you include handcuffs).

Not a bad shop, but definitely aimed more at guys than girls! Ranks 3rd.



Pillow Talk

4 Buttermilk Walk Review by Krystal, Jan 2008: Watched

Very small shop, lots of DVDs and Mags, but not much of a selection of anything else!

I felt really uncomfortable in here! Kinda has a sleazy feeling about it. I felt like I was being watched the whole time! Least favourite.



Laura Jane Adult Shop

20 Upper Dominick Street

Mon-Sat: 10am - 8pm
Sun: noon - 6pm

Previously known as Sarah Jane's Underworld. Listing Checked in September 2020.

From Laura Jane, November 2014: Discretion

Specifically catered towards those who value discretion and privacy when shopping for sex toys in Galway

Review by Krystal, Jan 2008: My Favourite

Definitely my favourite shop, didn't feel at all embarrassed, was just like doing grocery shopping! When I entered, the sales assistant asked me to leave my bags at the till, and said if I needed any help to just ask him, the left me to it until I approached him again.

Wide selection of toys for both guys and girls, and lingerie (though no large sizes.) Some bondage gear. Sales assistant was very helpful, opening packaging for me etc. Ranks 1st.

An all round impressive shop

News September 2008: Licence Restored

Pulse & Cocktails' sex shop licence was restored in court.

Magistrates in Blaydon said: Even if we had found the [no pornography advertising] condition had been breached we would still have set aside the revocation as we feel that Mr Kidd runs his business in a responsible manner.

We believe Mr Kidd would not knowingly breach the condition, and when the alleged breach was brought to his attention he immediately took steps to have the advertisement removed.

News April 2008: Licence Revoked

Pulse & Cocktails' sex shop licence was revoked in April 2008 in a ludicrous response to complaints about posters for the shop.

Pulse & Cocktails has appealed and the case will be heard in September. In the meantime the shop is continuing to trade.

From Pulse & Cocktails, April 2007: Massive Superstore

This is now a newly licensed and fully refurbished massive superstore and is split into two departments.

This first department is Cocktails, which has an excellent range of sexy lingerie, costumes, PVC, latex and hosiery in a variety of styles ranging from sizes 8-26. This department also has a huge selection of naughty novelties, gifts, games and hen and stag night products.

Pulse is where the shopping adventure really begins! The sex toys department is huge with literally thousands of toys from every corner of the globe with many items available to touch in the 'switch on and try before you buy' display area. This store also has an exclusive range of erotic furniture.

This store has one of the largest adult film departments with over 5,000 different DVDs covering every type and subject imaginable. This department also has a 42" plasma screen showing trailers of the latest films. The store also has an excellent, Gay DVD section with over 300 titles. The DVDs are very competitively priced and Pulse & Cocktails offers an excellent exchange system on all films.

There is also huge range of XXX books and magazines, none of which are sealed and all at very competitive prices.

Pulse and Cocktails is situated at Blaydon Factory Shop near. There is ample free parking outside and around the store on the industrial estate.

Sun: Closed

Tel: 0141 221 2538


Review from The List , Oct 2007: Busby Berkeley

Entering the newly-opened Agent Provocateur store on Glasgow's Ingram Street, with its complex, splendid set pieces, concept lighting and legions of housecoat-clad glamour girls, is a bit like shopping in a Busby Berkeley musical. Busby probably wouldn't have got the display cases of glittering whips past the censors, right enough.

‘The Agent Provocateur experience is about avoiding that very British prudery, where we insist on categorising anything to do with sex as sleazy or smutty,' said their spokeswoman Jacqui Soliman.

Review from Joanna, April 2012: An amazing shop

Walk into most sex shops and what do you see? Plain walls, with scruffy looking boxes and crude or lewd pictures.

This isn't what sex shops should be. They should be sexy, alluring, and most of all, as undaunting as possible.

Luke and Jack is an amazing shop which goes above and beyond everything Clone Zone ever did when they owned the shop.

When you walk into the shop, there is a wide range of magazines, mostly (but not completely) aimed at LGBT clientele and books. As well as the usual erotic novels, they have books on sex, such as guides to anal/lesbian sex, strap ons, and more, books on queer culture and films, and an absolutely stunning range of erotic photography books. This theme is continued throughout the shop, with photos and other artwork lining the top of each wall, and sold at a reasonable price. Also in the opening of the shop, there a is wide range of jewelry for sale, as well as some kinky, funny and erotic cards.

It's not until you reach the corner of the shop that you realise that the main part of the shop is a sex shop. With a wide range of sex toys, arranged prettily against some nice, classy wall paper, and some extremely helpful members of staff on hand to provide information, advice, and order items in, the shop is the sexiest sex shop I've ever been to.

I was slightly disappointed by the lack of sex toys for women, but they had a small amount and were willing to order in anything I wanted.

As I left, I asked whether the shop continued downstairs - no, the Virginia Gallery is downstairs, with some beautiful pieces of art which wouldn't be displayed elsewhere. the gallery only adds to the classy service provided at Luke and Jack.

Luke and Jack is well worth a visit,

News from Luke & Jack, February 2011: Mainly gay but all are welcome

Luke & Jack is a gay owned business filling the gap that Clone Zone left behind. Although aimed mainly at the gay and lesbian market ALL are welcome.

We provide a personal shopping service that matches customers to the right product. We are also proud to be the first UK shop-in-shop for Mister B providing quality leather, rubber and fetish wear.

And that's not all. At the same location we have The Virginia Gallery, an exhibition space in the basement beneath the shop.

Private Shop

Unit 7 Ashville Trading Estate
Empire Way

Mon-Sat 9.30-6pm (Fri 8pm)

Licensed. Listing checked May 2019.

Review from ETO's Mystery Shopper, February 2015: Welcoming

The retail space was practically an airship hangar.

DVDs are £ 20 ( 3 for £ 40) for or £ 25 (3 for £ 50) each. There are also £ 10 bargains.

Sheer scale makes this a four star store with vast potential.

Review from David, May 2010: All very pleasant

The Private Shop has moved from the cattle market to their new location which is MUCH bigger and more organised!

Plenty of parking, and the last few times I've been in there, it's been run by two ladies.

All very pleasant, with a large mag and DVD section.

Reader review

The shop is located in a small precinct of shops next to the cattle market. A general market is held there on Wednesday's and Saturdays so parking could be a problem.

The shop itself is relatively small, only a medium sized room for a selling area. It is run by a man and woman, presumably husband & wife who are quite friendly. They stock hardcore magazines at £15 each or four for £30. Their hardcore VHS format videos are £40 each or four for £100.

(videos are generally £20 in London, magazines <= £10)

I didn't price the DVD's but I presume they will be more expensive than the videos.

They sell the usual range of dildos and sex toys at the usual sex shop prices.

News, October 2014: Licence renewal refused

The committee considered a list of offences committed by the store's manager - including displaying for sale hundreds of sex DVDs that were not licensed and hazardous sex-enhancing products that were not properly labelled.

The shop seems to be connected with BC Books in Dagenham.

There's a friendly manager who knows what he is talking about
