Dunnes of Wicklow - a County Wicklow food producer and member of Wicklow Naturally

Dunnes of Wicklow is a household name here in The Garden of Ireland – it is renowned for producing their own unique pudding and sausages using the same recipes which have been passed down through the family for over 200 years.

It was founded 30 years ago by Shay Dunne and since then the family have continued to produce great tasting products using the same family recipes.

With its origins dating back to the famine era, the products were not produced on a commercial scale until the early 80s when Shay began production under the Dunnes Of Wicklow brand.

With the addition of Dunnes’ own recipe sausages and their own brand rashers, customers can now enjoy a more complete breakfast from a trustworthy family run business which holds quality and taste above all else.

The Dunne family are proud of every ring of pudding and packet of sausages which leaves their state of the art purpose built factory in Rathnew.

The family know that their continued hard work means that they still have customers in the same local shops which first purchased Dunnes of Wicklow products nearly 30 years ago.

The team at Dunnes Of Wicklow are acutely aware of the need for high quality home-grown raw materials. Therefore, they source all pork, bacon and rashers only from EU approved Irish plants and companies. Because of this they can promise all our customers that our products contain only 100 per cent Irish meat

Their pudding recipe has been a family secret for over 200 years. Passed on from generation to generation it has barely changed from the very first day it was made. This can been proven by the fact that we, to this day continue to use the same suppliers for the ingredients we use, as we did for the past 200 years.

To complement the pudding, Dunnes Of Wicklow created its very own recipe sausages. For the past 30 years these have been sold alongside their puddings in every store they supply.

In the autumn of 2011 the family added a range of rashers to their product line. Branded as Dunnes Of Wicklow they help create the full breakfast package for all customers.

The team work hard to ensure that they comply fully with all regulations and laws governing food manufacturers and meat processers in the EU. Because of this hard work and dedication we can boast full HACCP and regulatory approval. This culminated in Dunnes of Wicklow being awarded the EU Plant Number IE 2696 EC.
