A Year in the Life

Co Carlow Chamber honouring Carlow Businesses


Rathwood Home & Garden Centre, Tullow, is a major local employer with 55 staff. They are significant contributors to economic well-being of the Tullow area.. The company which was started by husband and wife team Patrick & Carmel Keogh back in 1994 isone of the most fantastic local business success stories of recent years.

Rathwood offers a one stop shop for those looking for a really enjoyable day out. Customers can browse through a stunning range of home and garden products as well as fashion & footwear and when all the shopping is done, customers can enjoy a well earned rest in Rathwood’s country style restaurant which serves a wide range of sandwiches, hot foods, cakes and coffees.

In recent years, Patrick & Carmel have been joined by son James who now takes a very active role in running and developing the business.

Also this year, following the hugely successful Santa train experience, Rathwood is launching its brand new Wild West Adventure which is aimed at children aged 3-10 and promises to provide a fun filled adventure for young families and can be booked online at www.rathwood.com.

The company are also proudly entering their second year with their own brand garden furniture range which is proving extremely popular.

Earlier this year, Rathwood’s hard work was recognised when they took home the Store of the Year Award at the Retail Excellence Ireland Annual Awards in the store over 10,000 feet category.
