Welcome to Louth Local Enterprise Office

Shop Local - Look for Local - Look for Louth

Your choices make a real difference to your community!

Whether online or in person, the choices we make for our Christmas shopping have a real impact on our local community. Shopping local keeps small businesses trading and local people employed. Local businesses employ your friend, your neighbour, your cousins, your brothers, sisters, parents, and wider community. 

It’s so important to #Look For Local- Look For Louth, especially this year. That’s why the team at Local Enterprise Office Louth are inviting you to start your Christmas shopping right here.

Using our handy Christmas Shopping Directory below you can Shop Local, Search Local and Support Local. You’ll find a huge selection of local shops, gifts, crafts, home, garden, food, fashion and so much more. Why not use #LookForLouth in your posts to tell us about the great local businesses you’ve discovered?

Competitions will run locally from December 2nd- details to follow

Want to be included in the online directory?

Local Businesses who are trading online are invited to join our Christmas Shopping Directory by emailing lookforlocal@leo.louthcoco.ie with your business name and web address. You can also send an optional logo or photo and a 100 word description of your product or service.
