Paul and Irene welcome you to Driftwood, home of the Beara Chair.
We are proud of our furniture, the quality of the workmanship and materials used are very important to us. Each chair is individually made & all screw holes are timber plugged. The furniture is fully assembled, ready for you to apply your own finish and is possibly the most comfortable wooden chair in the world! All chairs are individually hand made in our workshop on the Beara Peninsula in South West Ireland. The Beara Chair can be found at Driftwood Craft Shop (location on map).
Here you are invited to come and test the range and see for yourself the craftsmanship that goes into each piece. The Beara Chair is a unique chair or bench that takes its inspiration from the Adirondack or Muskoka chair. Made from pressure treated Scandinavian Redwood, an exceptionally durable timber from Eco friendly sources, the chair makes a stylish statement in the conservatory, home or garden. We can also make the chair from Monterrey Cypress and Oak on request.
The Beara Chair is designed with a contoured seat & curved back which makes for an exceptionally comfortable & relaxing chair which needs to be tried to be appreciated.
Driftwood is also in the process of developing its own Cafe, due to open soon, where you can sit and relax with a drink and a snack, looking out over the beautiful Beara Coastline.
Driftwood Craft Shop is located between Glengarriff & Castletownbere on the R572 below the famous Hungry Hill and Mountains of Beara. Why not take a trip to this beautiful part of the country and call in for a browse. We look forward to seeing you.
