Crobally Irish Soaps is based on the south coast of Ireland near to the seaside towns of Dungarvan and Ardmore in County Waterford. We started making soaps and creams using beeswax from the family’s bees in 2001 after moving to this beautiful place in 1999.
Clive was a Quality Control Engineer in the UK and the exactness and attention to detail needed in that profession is replicated in Crobally Irish Soaps products.
Rachel was Head of Service and a Reference Librarian in Birmingham Central Library – useful when you need to research soap and skincare recipes!
Wherever possible we use locally produced ingredients and Irish companies for our supplies. We try to promote low plastic use and sustainability – our packaging changes as we try to leave an ever softer footprint on the earth.
The peace and tranquility of our location acts as an inspiration for us and we use the Irish Hare in our Crobally Irish Soaps logo; we see so many of them in the local area that they have become a kind of mascot for us. They have long been regarded as semi-magical creatures.
This area of Ireland is a hidden jewel – very beautiful scenery with an impressive cultural tradition of music, singing, dancing and crafts. It is a Gaeltacht location too with Colaiste na Rinne close by (a Boarding College for teaching Irish to young people).
You might be interested in visiting the area, so take a look at the Visit Waterford website for ideas of what to do and where to visit. We’re not far from the Waterford Greenway linking Dungarvan and Waterford City in a 46km off-road cycle and walking route which has spectacular scenery, viaducts, bridges and an atmospheric tunnel that adults and children love.
