What Styles are available?
The Charlie Hotty Chiminea
The Charlie Hotty is 51cm (W) x 63.5cm (D) x 114cm (H). It has a large chimney to redirect the smoke up and away from you and your guest’s faces. It has a mesh covering around the body, allowing maximum air to get in, without anything inside falling out. It has an openable front door, allowing you to stoke the embers easily. The chimney’s covering prevents unwanted bits and pieces falling into the fire (like your dad flinging popcorn kernels into it or a clumsy cat).

This dome-shaped fire pit has stars other planetary designs built into its grill casing cover. It casts beautifully interesting shadows while giving you a bit of protection too. This circular piece is particularly great for entertaining at, as everyone around it gets an equal share of the glow.

The Inferno Fire it is hexagonal in shape, i.e. it has 6 sides. It has a thin base that opens into a larger body. The base of the unit is surrounded by a hatched covering, with a further mesh lining inside to prevent anything falling out (or anyone sticking their hand in!)
On top sits a hexagonal mesh guard which keeps everything inside and allows you to safely manage your fire. It can be removed to allow you to toast at it and put back into position when needed. The body can be easily transported and cleaned, but it’s not so light to pose a problem when in use.

You can also collect your fire pit or chiminea from the Sheds Direct Ireland showroom in Finglas. You can see our opening hours on the bottom of the page or on Google Maps.
There is a small amount of assembly required on all of these fire pits. The instructions are included, but for the most part, they’re fairly self explanatory. You should expect to have your fire pit fully assembled in about 20-30 minutes.
What is a fire pit?
A fire pit is basically a camp-fire for your garden. They’re generally made of metal and often they’re raised off the ground for comfort and for practical use; e.g. grilling your bread or toasting marshmallows on. Once they’re kept a safe distance from your house, away from flammable materials, including trees and bushes, they’re an ideal addition to any garden.
What do I put in them?
We only recommend that only kiln dried wood is used in your fire pit. While other items can be used, they may create more debris or burn less effectively. Kiln dried wood has less moisture in it, so it lights easier. It also has the additional benefit of being less ‘smokey’ than other woods, so you shouldn’t have red-eyes sitting around it for long durations!
How do I start them?
There is a range of fire-starters available on the market. For a simple starting option, you can add on an Electrical Lighter when you are purchasing. This will allow you to quickly and safely start your fire pit. Here is a little gif of the electric lighter starting one of our wick heaters.
How do I arrange wood in fire pit?
We could waffle on about formations, but Hustlin Dad has a fantastic video on youtube about how to start a Fire Pit with wood, which you can see here:
Are Fire Pits just BBQs?
Yes and no.
I mean, it’s a pit that you can start a fire in. You can put anything in it once it’s supported and it’ll grill away, but some fire pits aren’t designed to make grilling as easy as the others. If you know what you’re doing you could technically use it as a BBQ, but we’d recommend that you don’t, but that’s moreso because of the mess that you’ll make without the right parts!
Will they rust?
Unless covered and properly maintained, fire pits will ‘platina’ and have visible surface-level rust on them. As these units can be easily covered or easily moved, we recommend that keep them out of the rain and other adverse weather where possible.
How do I protect the grass from a fire pit?
If you’re thinking of putting your fire pit directly onto the grass, you should be aware that it can scorch or burn from the heat of the fire pit. The two most popular solutions to this issue is
Why are they so popular?
It should be no surprise to any reader to learn that Ireland is cold. Even during the Summer months, evenings can bring a chill to your spine quicker than Freddie Kruger doing stretches in your front garden. So adding a Fire pit to your garden allows you to have some outdoors time without catching frostbite. They can turn a day’s sunbathing into an evening under the stars, or they can even make the outside that bit more bearable as the night’s begin to draw in during the Winter months.
Are they legal?
Provided that they is used as intended, they is perfectly legal to use. The burning of household waste is illegal however – and with good reason. The burning of plastics or even pressure-treated woods can release toxic chemicals into the air, which can be fatal. If you don’t plan on burning your rubbish in your fire pit, you’ve nothing to worry about.

You can choose to add a fire mat to any of our heaters. Two sizes are available.
