“I am a customer for a number of years, and during all of that time, I have experience the entire staff to be most pleasant and service very professional in every regard.

They are the perfect example of the highest standard of excellence on the phone and in personal for each transaction without exception. It is a pleasure to be a truly satisfied customer”


“I feel privileged to pen a few words of thanks to all of you. My fanily and I are beneficiaries of your personalised services and attention to the merest detail. Your preparing of each months medicine into its compartments (5 sections per day) in your new ‘blister packs’, saves me from a real chore and I thank you all for this daily convenience.

Hospital staff have also been favourably impressed when I produce Howard’s Pharmacy Blister Pack with its printed list of ALL my medications. Consultants, Doctors, Nurses, have all commented favourably, taking particular note of the helpful level of detail listed and express appreciation of the work put into it.

It brightens my day to step over your threshold and into your company. I feel confident that I am in safe hands. All staff are always pleasant, friendly and quick to assist.

You are undoubtedly the best pharmacy service we have ever experienced. Thank you all so much”


“As a mother of teenage children and a carer for an elderly relative, I have been a frequent visitor to Howard’s Pharmacy for many years and am delighted to have this excellent service located so near to me, in Moycullen village.

I have always been impressed with the very professional, efficient and friendly service provided by Shane and each and every member of his highly dedicated team. The service is always delivered with courtesy and a smile, with up-to-date advice relating to all our health care needs always available, no matter how busy they are!

The location of the pharmacy is really great, with lots of car parking spaces freely available and, as it is open seven days a week, I find this really convenient and assuring to know that they are always ‘there’, when needed.

I would highly recommend Howard’s and will continue to use this service for the foreseeable future”
