Sundaes is a quirky, award winning, retro family run ice cream parlour in Ballybunion, a quaint Irish town on the shores of the Atlantic.
Regularly nominated for awards Sundaes has forged a unique path in the world of ice cream. The ice cream is homemade with a distinctive creamy texture in many sensational flavours.
Jeff Hogan from Carolina Beach was on holiday in Kerry, he walked through the door of Sundaes looking for an ice cream not a whole new business venture; but he got both.
Blown away by the taste of the ice cream and the laid-back beach vibe of the shop he sat and chatted for a while. Throughout the conversation he revisited many times how amazing the ice cream tasted and how much it would be loved by people in North Carolina and the United States.
He suggested we looked into opening a shop in Carolina Beach. We have been approached on numerous occasions to open other businesses in both the USA and Ireland, however, and to cut a very long story short something about Jeff and his family made me think he was genuine and for the first time I wanted to consider the opportunity.
Jeff pottered back to Carolina Beach and the emails started flying across the Atlantic. We wanted to keep the Irish connection strong as that is the foundation of the company and so the ‘Celtic Creamery’ was born.
