About us

James and Peter McElwee in McElwee Pharmacy Mountmellick

Big enough to stock it, small enough to care

Now in our fifth decade, McElwee Pharmacies are a true Laois family business, having been established in 1975 by James A and Mary McElwee with their first store in O'Connell Square in Mountmellick. Their son, Peter is now Managing Director of their three stores in O’Connoll Square Mountmellick, Connolly St Mountmellick or Cedar Clinic Portlaoise.

Your health and wellbeing is our focus.
McElwee Pharmacies are here for you, offering premium healthcare products and services as well as advice for living well. We like to listen and give you the time to tell us how we can help you. Our highly trained pharmacists and healthcare staff ensure their advice is accurate and relevant. All our stores have an in-store consulting room and health screening facilities for manageable conditions including blood pressure, cholesterol, BMI check and much more.
We offer among the most comprehensive range of pharmacy and healthcare products and services in Laois. At each of our locations we stock exclusive cosmetic and beauty ranges such as Aveeno and Vichy as well as lifestyle and nutrition products for men and women. We also have an extensive selection of gift ideas for all occasions.

Proud to be part of the community.
McElwee Pharmacies pride ourselves as being the local pharmacy serving the local community. We offer a range of services and treatments that help our customers take control of their health from chiropody treatments, to acupuncture, massage and facial rejuvenation.  Our trusted partners are qualified professionals and you can book your appointment conveniently online or in-store.  



We also have a state of the art in-store printing service. Our technologically advanced printing kiosk is easy to sue and offers you a range of printing options and great finishes so you can have  excellent quality prints of your favourite photographs in minutes.

The good news is that you do not need an appointment to speak to a pharmacist in McElwees – simply drop into one of our stores at any time for the help you need.
