Brooke & Shoals
Brooke & Shoals was founded by Alison Banton in the picturesque seaside town of Greystones in County Wicklow, known as the “Garden of Ireland”. Originally, Alison’s wonderful fragranced candles were sold only in her own shop in Greystones. However, an increasing number of inquiries from other stores to stock her ranges, led her to scale up the business to meet the growing demand for her high-quality, Irish made, design-led products. Now, Brooke & Shoals can be found in many high-quality stores in Ireland, the UK, mainland Europe and in the USA.
