"The soft, wavering glow of candlelight provides the same comfort and romance as it has for centuries.”
500 years of knowledge
John G Rathborne established his candle company on Wynetavern Street, Dublin in 1488 after moving over from Chester, England to seek his fortune with an innovative new business. Across 500 years Rathbornes candles have illuminated the streets, homes, lighthouses and candles of Ireland. The candles producded today are still hand-crafted with many of the same skilled methods which they have used since the 5th century.
Investing in beauty
It takes a 18 months for a master blender to create and develop Rathbornes fragrances, drawing on six centuries of manufacturing skills to create the ultimate in luxury candles and diffusers. Rathbornes believe that beautiful things cant be rushed and they invest time to make the candles the best they can be.
