The Hadden Family

This has been a wonderful journey setting up Tinahely Farm Shop, although some days were harder than others but I must say!

We have loved every minute of it. Together, as a Family, we have brought a selection of everything that we love into a big recycled Shed and have made a wonderful award winning Farm Shop – with a difference.

We do so many things, from hosting the Original Wanderly wagon from RTE days to Co. Wicklow’s only indoor beach, to Go-carts and the most friendly animals that you could ask for.

Each day starts off in the kitchen making fresh homemade brown bread and scones that will keep any palette delightfully happy!

The restaurant, which once was the feed passage for the cows when we were milking, is now where we feed people instead

We pride ourselves on really good wholesome food, made with organic and, much as we can, locally sourced food – all made on site here in the Farm Shop. Beautiful home made soup made each day.

This is a family affair, with our Children, who are now teenagers, lending a hand on the Farm and in our Shop. They are so much part of this business now and have grown up enjoying every minute of help us create Tinahely Farm Shop.

In the Media….

Part of the development of our Farm Centre was the advice that Francis & John Brennan, from RTE’s “At Your Service“, gave when  they visited. They encouraged us to develop the Activity Barn – and create Wicklow’s only Indoor Beach – a great place to play for children of all ages! In September 2014 we were thrilled to be given a “highly commended” award by the Irish Times Magazine in their “Best Shops in Ireland – Best Day Out” category.


We are now a popular venue for a great day out in Ireland for all the family and, thanks to the feedback and support we have received from friends, customers and fellow entrepreneurs, we are constantly striving to improve our range of products and develop new ideas for the Farm Shop & Activity Barn.

We love what we do and invite you to come and share our vision for Tinahely Farm Shop & Activity Centre and enjoy our extensive array of local crafts and produce.
