The Garden Bar
There’s no better way to spruce up the garden than with a Garden Bar. It becomes the focal part of any garden party and it’s a great place to socialise the morning-after the night-before. At Sheds Direct Ireland, we’re happy to announce two new styles of Garden Bars to our Wooden Shed range. They’re both made with tongue and groove timber and they’d both look great in any garden.
The two styles available are: The Al Fresco and The Tolka.
The Al Fresco has two exposed sides with a side entrance along the shorter side. It has a built-in shelf behind the bar and a small overhang on the ceiling. The Tolka is the more traditional garden bar. It has a pent roof with an overhang above the bar, two hinged wooden windows to open the bar up and a side door.

The Sheds Direct Ireland Al Fresco Garden Bar is measured externally and it measures:
- 8ft / 243cm wide
- 5ft / 152cm deep
- 7ft 2″ / 218cm tall at the front

- The Al Fresco Garden Bar is made with Deluxe Wood.
- The Tolka is made with Pressure Treated Barrell Board Wood.

The Al Fresco is made with Deluxe Wood, which is a tongue in groove wood. It’s a sturdy wood, but it will need annual varnishing to keep it in top nick. It’s a great option if you’re looking to personalise it.
The Tolka Garden bars have a Barrel Board wood finish, so they looks the business. Barrell Board is essentially just Deluxe Wood with a ‘bulged appearance like a log cabin would have, while Pressure Treated Wood means that you don’t have to worry about treating your bar every year. It has been treated with preservatives, so it won’t prematurely rot, it’s not susceptible to fungus, rodents don’t like gnawing at it, and it doesn’t need treating for at least a decade. You can concentrate on perfecting a Whiskey Sour, safe in the knowledge that your latest addition to the garden doesn’t need annual varnishing.
The Tolka Garden bar comes with a blue, moisture barrier lining, which prevents moisture evaporating and it drastically reduced the instances of condensation formation. The Al Fresco does not come with this lining, as it’s more exposed and less likely to suffer from condensation anyway.
The Garden Bar
Both sheds have a bar built into them. As the Al Fresco is more exposed, it has a wider bar built into it, as seen in the images. The Tolka has a bar that sits just below the opening of the window. Both are large enough for a few pints, a few empties and the odd bag of scampi fries too. They both feature built-in shelves at the back too, perfect for standing your spirits onto. The Al Fresco has a full width shelf, the Tolka has a 450mm/18″ shelf fitted along the back wall.
You’ll just need to make sure that the service staff don’t let the empties pile up too much!
