“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

It was our first visit to Mullingar, and my husband is an avid gardner, we were told by the staff in the hotel that he should visit O'Mearas Garden centre, I was absolutely amazed by the size of the place, and the quantity of stock (and not just plants), they have a large indoor section which was right up my street, household goods, must have spent over an hour here , when you head out to the garden centre, the first thing that hits you is the abundance of colour and smell, just wonderful and uplifting, my husband was in his element in the garden centre, between the two of us we managed to fill the car with plants and household goods.
They have a lovely coffee shop which is very homely.
This place is worth a visit

“Decent garden centre - but not an attraction!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Go here to buy plants seeds and tools by all means, but fon't bother with the extensive and overpriced range of tat that is on offer. I saw many products for sale here that in the UK were less than half the price. Also, although the place markets itself in a kitsch "traditional" way, many of the things for sale are not eben made in Ireland! Take, for example the O'Meara's own label conserves and chutneys - these are made in Market Harborough, England - surely they can find someone more local to produce their "local" food!
