About Us

Sheds Direct Ireland is home to Ireland’s most affordable, quality sheds and garden products. It’s a family-run company founded by the Father-and-Daughter team of Alan and Louise Dawson.

The company was established after Alan found it difficult and unnecessarily expensive to source a good quality shed on the island of Ireland. The pair took it upon themselves to fix this for the Irish market. Years later, the goal remains the same: source the most cost effective, high quality materials and provide them to our customers with a high level of care.

The Sheds Direct Ireland Head Office and beautiful showroom can be found on the Jamestown Road in Finglas and it is here you can see everything that we have to offer. Our sales team, web department and delivery teams are all based here too – so if you need a question answered, pop into us, or give us a call at 01 864 4247.  So, if you need high quality garden shed or some garden equipment at a competitive price – as well as exceptional industry knowledge and years of experience, you’ll struggle to find better than Sheds Direct Ireland.

Meet the Team

Alan Dawson – CEO

Our Full-time CEO & Part-time racing driver. Some ask “Is he the Stig?”, but we’ll never tell! Alan’s main responsibilities are picking and choosing new products for the business. He’s always floating around the showroom trying to tell you about all his trophies at home or dreaming up new ideas for sheds. Don’t be surprised to see him delivering a shed to your house, as he will do anything to get behind the wheel.

Louise Dawson – Managing Director

The woman who pays our wages. Louise looks after the day to day running of the business. There’s no better person to go to if you can’t remember an order or product from 3 years ago as she has a memory like no other. Her main duties are keeping Alan in check whenever they go to trade-shows and also keeping him away from the stockroom. Feel free to ask her about all things flatpacked as it’s a secret passion of hers.

Samantha O’Rourke – Sales Manager

Samantha joined the sales team in March, 2022. Her main role is making sure that the customers have everything they need while shopping in our showroom. If you call our store with any questions, there’s a good chance you’ll have Samantha on the other end – just don’t ask her about slippers though, she may hang up.

Orla Ward – Sales Assistant

Winner of Ms Sheds 2024. Orla has been a valuable member of our sales team since 2019. Orla’s main duties are to make sure our customers orders are processed and shipped accurately and on time. If you’re planning a trip to our showroom, you’re likely to be greeted by Orla at our sales desk so feel free to grill her on all things sheds. She may hit you with some flirty banter though, so be careful!

Staff Member: Louise

Louise O’Hara – Sales Assistant

Louise, AKA ‘Young Louise’, is the newest member to the Sheds Team. Louise looks after online orders and in-store customers and her infectious laugh has gone down well with customers and staff alike.

Sean Conroy

Sean Conroy – Marketing Manager

Sean joined the team in April 2019 and he set up the website as it exists today. He got the job because he had a beard and glasses and that’s all you need to be trusted with a website, these days.
