Five years ago, the term Black Friday barely existed in Ireland. It was a foreign US concept that we knew had something to do with Thanksgiving. In 2014, however, the trend travelled across the water and really kicked off in Ireland.

Last year, over €100m was spent in Ireland on Black Friday alone, a serious surge for retailers compared to any other single shopping day in the run-up to Christmas. Black Friday does offer some seriously good deals though, and we have listed quite a few below. However, before you start swiping the credit card, remember a discount is only a deal if you need it.
