Kildare man in with chance of winning Best Barber Shop in Dublin

Milltown's Dave Kiely of DK Barbers

Milltown native, David Kiely is in with a chance of winning the Best Barbers in Dublin title in an online vote.

The former Patrician Brothers Secondary School student worked in Joe Kelly Barbers on Georges Street in Newbridge for many years before setting up his own business in Dublin.

David is well known locally and played for Milltown – winning two Junior B County Kildare Championships.

He now owns and runs DK Barbers in Citywest Shopping Centre beside Citywest Business campus. Celebrating 10 years in business, he opened a second DK Barbers in Rathcoole seven weeks ago.

“DK Barbers now employs 12 staff between both shops as I started on my own in 2008. We had been nominated for the best barber shop in Dublin award through 98fm radio station. We are now shortlisted in the final five in this category. This is mega considering the amount of barber shops in Dublin,” he said. 

The competition is based on a voting basis through facebook. To vote for DK Barbers, click here.
