Welcome to Lyk Nu...

In 1941 LYK NU Cleaners was set up on St. Stephens Green in the heart of Dublin City's south side. Set up as a family business it has remained the same ever since.

LYK NU operated a bit differently back in the 1940’s compared to how it operates now. Originally customers posted clothes to LYK NU, they were then cleaned and sent back. The name "LYK NU" was very unique also for the time. It is believed to be, by many the first use of modern day "text language" in Ireland at the time. Being on St. Stephens Green brought a lot of unique business with it. During times of big events such as the Dublin horse show in the RDS saw bell boys from the Russell and Hibernian hotels running over with guest's clothes to be cleaned for the event.

After St. Stephens Green shopping centre was approved to be constructed LYK NU moved to Camden Street in 1972. It remained there for 2 years before moving to its current location of Donnybrook, Dublin 4.

In 1999 LYK NU grew to two shops. The second store was open by then owner Eoin Hodkinson in Booterstown Dublin 4. In 2001 Eoin decided to retire from the business and offered to sell LYK NU to his Donnybrook store manager Ken Conlan who had started working in LYK NU in 1969 at the age of 15.
Ken decided to accept Eoin's offer and is the current owner of LYK NU cleaners.

In 2006 Ken opened LYK NU's 3rd store in the rapidly growing town of Ratoath, County Meath.

LYK NU has grown over the best part of the last century to become one of Dublin's most well-known, reputable dry cleaners and the majority of our staff in all our shops have over 10 years’ experience in the business with many having more than 20 years working for LYK NU.

In 2016 LYK NU will celebrate its 75th year in business.

Here at LYK NU we strive to use our experience and expertise to bring you a top quality service that you can trust and rely on to get you the best results possible.

Testimonials

“Super Service for leather jacket cleaning! I literally rang every where trying to look for someone that would clean and service my leather jacket...
The staff were really friendly and said they wouldn't return it until they were satisfied with the condition of it, and I was really impressed!”
