In the early 1980's, we began the initial operations of our sawmill in the Dublin Mountains. O'Kelly's Sawmill & The Shed Man was officially established in 1986 by Henry & Shirley O'Kelly. Over the past 30+ years the company has grown and re-branded under the name Timbertrove.
Disaster struck in 2009 with the collapse of the construction sector which led to our sales evaporating overnight. There was a huge increase in walkers and cyclists visiting the area, particularly the Hell Fire Club and Massy's Wood. We started serving coffee and treats, and soon recognised the potential which led to the establishment of the Country Store and Cafe at Timbertrove.
Our mission was to serve home baked food with good coffee in the heart of the Dublin Mountains in a cosy setting, while enjoying the breath-taking views overlooking Dublin Bay and the Dublin Mountains.
Now, our best selling product at Timbertrove is a Scone!
