Shop with RNIB Northern Ireland

View, try and buy from RNIB NI's extensive range of products, all designed to support blind and partially sighted people to live independent lives.

We offer peace of mind with up to 30 days to return an item if it is not suitable.

Opening hours

  • Monday through Thursday: 9am to 4pm
  • Friday only: 9am to 3pm
  • Weekends: Closed

Product range

Products in the shop are especially designed to assist people who are blind or partially sighted with everyday living tasks that can be made more accessible - tasks that many people take for granted, like:

  • Cooking
  • Reading
  • Using a computer
  • Making a phone call
  • or just getting out and about.

Our experienced and dedicated team in the shop are on hand to advise you about our products. They can provide guidance and instructions for use, and set many items so they are ready to use when you get home.


We still highly recommend going to your low vision clinic for a full assessment. However, we can now sell magnifiers up to strength x6. A simple eye test exercise can determine your required strength. A new range of magnifiers is available.  Request a catalogue in braille, large-print or audio.


Shop staff can provide product demonstrations and/or service information sessions to social groups and societies throughout the region on their own premises.

These are always well received and give a chance to get hands on with the products for those who perhaps could not otherwise make it to a RNIB NI shop.

We also welcome visits from groups or social clubs who wish to visit in the evening.

Just call or email to arrange a visit.

Products and technology service

We offer free technology taster sessions to people with sight loss. Get to know the latest technologies such as tablet computers, eBook readers and smartphones.

We're currently running training courses on the Apple iPad at various Technology Taster events around Northern Ireland. As you can imagine, this service is extremely popular so booking is essential for all courses and events.

Just get in touch with one of the team.
