Rathwood is an award-winning family run department store and restaurant. Established in 1994 in Rath, Tullow, County Carlow, in the South East of Ireland, Rathwood also now has a distribution centre based near Liverpool which supplies the UK market.

For almost 20 years, our team has been selecting quality furniture, garden products and special gifts for our loyal customers. The Rathwood garden furniture range has been designed by our team and built exclusively for our store in Ireland. In 2013 we opened a Rathwood office near Liverpool so we can offer our quality cast aluminium garden furniture sets also to UK customers.

Rathwood started off employing 2 people in 1994 and are now employing 55. External upgrades increased the retail area from 10,000 to 40,000 square feet, trebling the number of car parking spaces on offer to visitors and giving coaches ample room to park and turn. An animal park, forest walks, train rides and children’s play garden add to the exciting and different activities that visitors can take part in. A neighbour turned his hobby into a business and opened a Falconry and Birds of Prey Centre at Rathwood in 2009.
