Brown Thomas & Company Limited is a chain of four Irish department stores, located in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Limerick.

It includes Boutiques for Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, Gucci, Armani Cosmetics, Jo Malone, Molton Brown, Penhaligon's, and the like. Ladies boutiques include Chanel, Valentino, Versace, Jimmy Choo, and many others. A Vera Wang bridal salon recently opened. In November 2008 the Fine jewellery hall opened with Tiffany & Co, Cartier and, Theo Fennell boutiques inside.
