About Us

Who we are

The team at Topline Clearys in Kilcock, Co. Kildare share a wealth of experience in hardware and DIY, and enjoy sharing this knowledge with our customers. Our members of staff have spent their working lives in the hardware business and complement each other in their individual departments.

What we do

Whatever your requirements, be it a new build, an extension to your home or office, or some work in your garden, we will do everything in our power to make your job easier. We have a fully stocked builder’s yard for all your contract requirements. Our retail department includes stoves, doors, floors, paint, shower enclosures, housewares, tools, electrical appliances, and a gardening centre. We offer useful services including delivery, paint mixing and free quotations.

Our history

The Cleary family have been in business in Kilcock for four generations, beginning with a pub known as The Lamp on Bridge Street. The pub evolved to include a small grocery, then a hardware store, before expanding to the current premises beside Shaw Bridge in 1971. There are currently three generations of Clearys working in the shop.

The local community

We show our appreciation to the people of Kilcock and the surrounding areas for their ongoing support by sponsoring one of the local soccer teams and the Kilcock Dramatic Society. We also contribute financially to the schools, Tidy Towns committee, local GAA clubs, St. Patrick’s Day parade, St. Vincent de Paul and St. Brigid’s Hospice to name but a few. Robert Cleary is a committee member of the Kilcock Business Association, who are involved in organising local business and community events such as the Kilcock Canal Festival, Christmas lights and business networking events.

The Topline group

We joined the Topline group in 1999. We believe that becoming part of Ireland’s largest DIY buying group has contributed to the survival of our business during the recent difficult times. The buying power of the 150 plus Topline member stores nationwide is what enables us to compete with other domestic and indeed international chains. We offer our customers competitive prices, better friendly service and a welcoming shopping environment.
