During the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ballyseedy family gave their kitchen to local Meals on Wheels teams.

THE owners of Ballyseedy Home and Garden Centre have announced that the company is to create 50 new jobs this year. 



Since 1992, the company has operated its main garden centre and cafe in Tralee. The Group also operates a café in Raheen, established in partnership with Dairygold.

The centre was founded in 1988 by Dermot Kerins. A keen gardener and plant enthusiast, Dermot specialised in introducing various heather varieties into Ireland and sold the business to Bernie three years later.

Renamed ‘Ballyseedy Garden Centre’ a new chapter had begun for the McDonnell family and After years of hard work and passion for the industry, a beautiful new shop was created in 2007 known to locals as the ‘Crystal Palace’.

Fast forward to 2020, and the next generation of the McDonnell family, Abigail, Nathan, Naomi, Ruth and Salome support the running, development and vision of the business.

The sizeable centre is widely popular and offers expert gardening advice, premium quality plants and garden essentials. The business has won numerous awards, including placement in the Retail Excellence Top 100 Stores in Ireland.

The company will be hiring chefs, restaurant managers; baristas and café assistants, kitchen porters, an HR manager and more.

The roles offer a competitive salary and may be attractive for people looking to relocate. For the right candidates, Ballyseedy also offers flexible working arrangements.

Ballyseedy’s Managing Director Nathan McDonnell said the company is entering “a fast-growth phase”.

“It’s going to be an exciting place to work with loads of career progression opportunities. We’re looking for smart capable people who are up for a challenge,” he said.

“We’re proud to be creating new jobs in Kerry and Limerick this summer. Massive credit to our great business community, Tralee Chamber Alliance, Kerry County Council and our elected officials for their hard work in creating a vibrant local economy. The west is awake!”
