Storm in a Teacup was a little family idea, that began in May 2010. The concept started as a tiny ice cream hut, selling beautiful ice cream concoctions from the pier, on Skerries Harbour. Since then, each family member has taken on specific responsibility for a new aspect of the ice cream business, to help it flourish & grow (all the while keeping things close to home & personal).
One of the first projects, after opening, was to restore beautiful vintage ice cream vans. These vans have attended many festivals, weddings, parties etc. Following that, in 2015 the doors opened on a small production facility, based in Stamullen, Co. Meath. This facility makes beautiful handmade artisan ice cream, and for its efforts won an award, at Drogheda Maritime Festival. The fond connection with Drogheda began then, and so it was chosen as Storm in a Teacup’s second location. The doors of Stormy 2 opened in 2017, a dessert parlour sitting snuggly on the ground floor of Scotch Hall Shopping Centre. This has created wide interest in the town, and most recently was nominated as one of Drogheda’s top tourist attractions. Finally, Storm in a Teacup decided to travel up the coast of Louth, to open its third shop, in Blackrock Co. Louth. It is another magic seaside location, for everyone to enjoy that special day out!
