About Us

Stauntons Pharmacy was first opened in 1952, by Jack and Ita Staunton on the current site of Stauntons Costcutter Express. The business expanded in the 60's and 70's to include a retail gift shop, a sports and music store and at one stage even contained a library. The business continued to thrive but with the passing of Jack Staunton in 1978, the task of nurturing the business fell to Ita.

Stauntons Pharmacy Ltd. has a number of retail units in Castlebar including 3 pharmacies and a healthfood store.

Anne Staunton jnr., who has been working in the family business from an early age, graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2008 with a Master of Pharmacy Honours degree. She joined the team of Pharmacists in 2009 and has enhanced the pool of medical knowledge, medication management and patient care.

Jack Staunton has recenltly returned home from the UK having worked for a number of years as a store based pharmacist with Boots UK. Jack brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are delighted to have him back in the family business. 

David Staunton, a B.E MSc graduate from NUIG has been in charge of Logistics, Inventory and is Procurement Manager at Stauntons since 2009.

Stauntons currently employs approximately 50 people including 8 Pharmacists and Pharmaceutical Assistants. Together, we strive to provide one of the most professional, comprehensive, informed and reliable services in the west of Ireland.
