"Providing fun & craic to Irish homes for over 30 years"

The JokeShop Team

From our beginnings selling card tricks out of the family pub, to now being the most competitive Joke Shop in Ireland, over the last 30 years we have mastered our trade and proudly carry one of the biggest selections of joke, hen & costume accessories in the country.


Almost 30 years ago, Barry returned to his home town of Athlone after years of travelling and became involved in the family pub. With jokes & pranks always being a staple of his personality, it wasn't long until he had a deal with a local tour guide selling jokes & magic. From this humble side hustle, Barry has spent the last few decades growing his business to one of Ireland's largest online Joke Shops.

Changing with the times was always something Barry was conscious about: "adapting & keeping with the trends is one of the primary reasons that we're still standing!" When it all began, costume hire was all the rage, but over the years as business turns to online, personalised products & hen/stag accessories are becoming more & more popular.

Keeping competitively priced online is always something Barry & Katrina are monitoring. Any products you buy from the site are without a doubt the best value you'll find in all of Ireland.

Taking care of our customers is so important to us. We take pride in our stellar customer reviews and we love being able to help make your hens, baby showers or fancy dress parties into fun & unforgettable memories.

Our online shop has gradually become an emporium of costumes, jokes & magic products that we hope you enjoy!

All the best,

Barry, Katrina & the JokeShop Team : )
