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 passionate & 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 on a smallholding, amongst 9 farms, in Stamullen, Co. Meath. This ‘parlour’ 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, opening in 2017. This Stormy combined the love of v;intage vans with ice cream.. The counter was actually a converted VW van, sitting snuggly on the ground floor of Scotch Hall Shopping Centre. The following year, another Stormy was born, in the beautiful seaside town of Blackrock, Co. Louth. Sounds of Disney waft from it's retro jukobox, and the building is almost 'gingerbread house like' in appearance (a chlild's dream and an adult's oasis). In recent times, Stormy (& the world!) has had to react....and so sadly Scotch Hall Stormy is no more, but instead, in reaction to the times we live in, a 'take home' ice cream pack was created. These packs can be ordered online & collected in the Stormy stores. Fear not though, the Stormy Story will not end there….a new venture is in the making…& soon to be announced 😉 x
The family would just like to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU to all our new & existing customers, without you supporting the Stormy Story, there is no fairytale! We will aim to continue being part of the special memories in people's lives (the first date, the after-school treat,the weekend blow out, the meeting point for teenagers, the bribe, when someone’s having a bad day...the list goes on!)
Hope to see you soon x
