Rockbarton Garden Centre

The outdoor Christmas market will feature 30-plus stalls selling high quality produce and gifts created by very talented local craftspeople and artists.

Set in a beautiful historic 18th Century courtyard at Holycross, Bruff, Co. Limerick, the Rockbarton Garden Centre’s boutique Christmas Market is set to ignite a wonderful Christmas atmosphere while making ‘shop local’ easy.  The outdoor Christmas market will feature 30-plus stalls selling high quality produce and gifts created by very talented local craftspeople and artists.

This one-day event is as much about the shopping as it is about soaking up the Christmas atmosphere in a beautiful outdoor setting. Warm your hands around a mulled wine as you follow the one-way system and browse the myriad of artisanal handicrafts and delicious homemade foods on display as Christmas music plays in the background.

Take a break from the online shopping and find the perfect gifts or stocking fillers for everyone this Christmas from handcrafted or handmade soaps, fairy doors, jewellery, quilts, pottery, cakes, breads and so much more. Popular local artisan producers such as Happy Food at Home, Our Daily Bread, Lough Gur Pottery, Willow Crafts, Knitting, RnR Quilts, Mary’s Fairies, Mulberry Rose, Cookie & Crumb, Allo Craft & Design will all have stalls at the market.

Christmas Trees, Handcrafted Wreaths, Table Centres and Christmas Planters will also be available on the day. And children will be thrilled to know that hot chocolate and crépes will be on offer from the Café cart.

Now in its fifth year, the Christmas market will be taking place with a number of additional safety measures.  In adherence with Covid-19 health and safety guidelines, there will be a one way system in place, numbers entering will be monitored and hand sanitiser will be available on all stalls as well as at entry and exit points.  The cafe will also move outdoors to a café cart to ensure social distancing.

Lynda Sheehan, Rockbarton Garden Centre, said, “It is always a lovely day out with the family where you can embrace some Christmas cheer while picking up an unusual gift for a friend or relative – something that you’re not going to get anywhere else!”

“Everyone involved is very excited about the market going ahead, particularly after a very tough year for many local producers.  The market will obviously be different to previous events but we’re doing everything that we can to ensure there is a festive atmosphere and a warm welcome is waiting for you in a safe environment,” she continued.

About Rockbarton Garden Centre

Rockbarton Garden Centre is located in a beautiful historic 18th Century courtyard at Holycross, Bruff, Co. Limerick. It is a family-run business by Lynda & Bryan Sheehan, along with their children.

The boutique garden centre provides everything you need to maintain or create a garden – from a full range of flowers, shrubs and perennials to hedging, trees, bedding plants, pots and compost.

Lynda runs a variety of lifestyle and wellness gardening themed events and classes throughout the year including Christmas Wreath Workshops, Easter Egg Hunt and children’s gardening classes which were inspired by teaching her own children how to grow their own food.

This is the fifth year of the Christmas market which has grown from eight stands in 2016 to over 30 this year.
