What and Who we are

Cygnet is a Children’s Shoe and Clothing store. In Cygnet you will get an expert, trained measuring and fitting service - so vital for little feet, and all carried out with a smile and a friendly welcome. Cygnet stocks beautiful shoes for toddlers up to teenagers and provides a friendly, hassle-free shoe fitting experience, taking the time and patience to put your little one at ease and get the best fit.

Cygnet is a local, family business established by Sinéad Swan to meet a vital demand for the ever essential item of children’s shoes. Sinéad and her husband and three children live in Rathmines with the children attending local schools. She is passionate about providing a service that eases the pressure on the busy parents of today. You can get the new shoes job done when you’re on the way home from school, going to swimming lessons, getting your groceries, going to the cinema- with all the parking and facilities you and your family need.

Sinéad is also passionate about sourcing children’s shoes from quality, stylish brands- brands that specialise in the manufacture of children’s shoes - brands that spend time and money on the research and development of shoes that provide the best support for our children’s precious young feet.

Cygnet is very excited to introduce some stylish new brands to the Irish market - the exquisite French brands Pom D’Api and its sister brand Shoo Pom and the fashionable London brand Young Soles. Stocked side by side with these new brands will be the already known brands trusted by parents and loved by kids - Bobux, Geox, Clarks, Startrite, Saltwater Sandals, Garvalin, Lelli Kelly, Primigi, Lurchi and Agatha Ruiz de la Prada.

Cygnet also stocks a small, carefully curated range of clothing. Sinéad is committed to sourcing practical, functional, quality clothing that is also beautiful and stylish. Cygnet stocks clothes that can be passed down from sibling to sibling and then on to their cousins. We are excited to introduce to Ireland the chic Parisian brand Hello Simone along with the well established Danish brand Molo, Mayoral, Question Everything Kids and Bob and Blossom all of which Sinéad has been buying for her own children for over ten years. Cygnet inherently understands what it is to be a busy parent of young children. While you are getting the new shoes for your little ones, you can get the present for your new baby nephew or pick up a beautiful dress for your daughter’s birthday party, all under the one roof and all beautifully packaged and presented.

We hope you will find what you both need and love behind Cygnet’s doors.
