What else is on offer in our food court


Ireland’s first Eco Garden Centre has opened in Portarlington in May 2021.

Our Goal is to become a food & recreational destination and to attract like-minded customers and producers from around Ireland.

Our new garden centre is built on an old disused industrial site from disused shipping containers and recycled materials. It is our passion to promote sustainable living and champion ‘green’ gardening practices as well as supporting the sale of local artesian products. We have an inviting food village for tasty treats while you browse, and you will see we use only composable packaging.

Everything we have built has used recyclable materials - we have maintained sustainable principles in everything we do. Our shop is free from chemicals as we only sell organic and natural pest and weed controls.

We have converted a derelict factory into a 22,000 sq. ft. garden shop, with over 5,500 products, beside are garden centre which will have everything you need for the garden.
