At Barker & Bowes, we don’t just like dogs ... we love them

Imagine the finest award-winning (2020) salon in Limerick with stylists who are highly trained in our own Academy (backed up by our multi-award winning professional development sister company).

Imagine a salon where our staff are simply mad about dogs, constantly trained, and where we only use the finest premium products in a salon that oozes quality, technology, standards, hygiene, care, style elegance and, of course, absolute safety in a post-pandemic world.

Imagine a superior salon easy to get to, easy to park and the Castletroy neighbourhood park right beside us for those first stylish after groom walks.

Don't dream it, be here. And the name?

Well Barker is because we are all about your loyal friend and Bowes, is our little signature not just to say Thank You but to add a little style to a perfect visit (along with a little goodbye surprise treat too).

If high standards, professional academy trained stylists, safety, a beautiful salon and perfect, passionate professional grooming matter to you then come on in and see why we love your dog just as much as you.
