As the winner of the ‘Extra Large Store of the Year Award 2013’ and with over a quarter million visitors each year, Rathwood is the perfect place to spend a day out. This family owned spacious and well laid out centre houses an award winning garden centre, exclusive ranges of ladies clothing and shoes, beautiful interior styled rooms, stylish gifts, family friendly restaurant, birds of prey centre, a maze of Ireland and woodland walks.
Lunch at Rathwood’s restaurant is pivotal to the Rathwood shopping experience, where customers can relax and enjoy impressive wholesome lunches and a delicious selection of home baking (function room/group menus available).
A ride on the Rathwood Train, woodland walk, visit to the birds of prey centre or the Christmas Wonderland all make Rathwood a delight to visit all year round. Rathwood is also perfect for a lunch stop on a trip to Altamont Gardens which are located nearby.
