The only place worth shopping at

Posted on 10 / 13 / 2014

John cares a huge amount the quality of his products, pricing them fairly and getting them as locally as possible.
Very few big name brands in there so the prices are very fair but without any dip in quality. John will gladly bulk order dry or fresh produce for you and always let you know how much you're saving by buying that way. They'll also hand pick and deliver large orders right to your house.
For such a small place the variety is massive, catering for all dietary requirements and choices as well as toiletries and washing detergents.
John and Linda are there pretty much there everyday - a truly traditional store with truly traditional product: all certified organic - so you know that your custom is very much appreciated and recognised.

Real enthusiasm for organic produce

Posted on 08 / 29 / 2011

This is a smallish shop that makes much of it's available space, extending out onto the pavement with a display of organic fresh fruit and vegetables and through to its back yard with bulk refills for household products (as well as more stocks of fruit and vegetables).

Inside, you'll find more fresh supplies, plus a fairly good selection of pre-packed wholefoods, freshly delivered organic bread (if you pick your day) and a smattering of personal care products. With the emphasis on organic, rather than veg*n produce specifically, expect to see a few tins of fish on the shelves and a little meat in the bottom of the fridge.

Overall, though, for veg*ns in the area this is a great little resource. Rather than being a town centre outlet, it's sited on the road from Dundrum into Dublin, making it more akin to a local corner shop with an alternative twist.

John, the owner, is chatty and enthusiastic about what he sells and clearly proud of the vision he realised in 2006 by opening Ireland's first shop whose food lines were 100% organic. That said, he'll just as happily sell you an environmentally-friendly light-bulb and, within the space constraints, he does try to cover other eco-bases too, like recycled stationery.

Like most smaller shops, you will find a more extensive range at cheaper prices elsewhere, though a full basket of shopping still seems to come out at a reasonable cost.

Lately it's had to surrender the tag of being Ireland's only shop selling all-organic food, but in other ways EcoLogic still feels like something of a one-off.

Pros: Commitment to organic produce, Good range of refills, Enthusiasm of owners
Cons: Stock limited by space, Prices slightly higher than elsewhere
