The Easter break is only around the corner, and with St Patrick’s day double bank holidays only finished last week, it’s difficult to know what stores are opening and what supermarkets remain shut this Easter.

So without further ado, here is everything you need to know about all the top supermarkets opening hours.

Top Tip

There a lot of great Easter egg deals in the supermarkets at the moment so make sure to price compare in each store before you buy to get the best value.

I use the 5 off €25 voucher in Dunne’s stores when buying Easter Eggs as I find it great value especially when purchasing the high end chocolate eggs such as Lindt and Baileys.
