Our Review of The Pavilion Garden Centre

The Pavilion Garden Centre, located just outside of Cork City, brings together good food, home interiors and greenery all under the one roof. This family run business had its start in 1932 under the guidance of John O’Leary and his greenhouse, which supplied fresh produce, primarily tomatoes to established retailers and traders in Cork City, including The English Market. John’s son Míchael continued to grow the business which eventually led to them relocating to Myrtle Hill in Ballygarvan. John’s passion for growing sustainable top quality produce was passed down through the generations and was the foundation for what it is today, The Pavilion Garden Centre.  This longstanding family business is now in the expert care of John’s grandson Charlie and his wife Vera, who diversified the business to include greenery and shrubbery along with an extensive dining and retail offering.
