Where we began….

Barkers was established in 1848 by the Barker family and was bought by the Asple family in 1986.  Originally Barkers started out with a smaller premium retail offering of Fine China, Waterford Crystal, Irish linens and later adding well-known pottery such as Nicholas Mosses and Kiltrea.

Four years after opening Barkers, Bertha Asple was driving through England when she spotted a sign for Country Kitchen Supplies and so the love of all things kitchen was born!  Barkers now sell every gadget and tool needed for the kitchen from a peeler to the pestle mortar and all in between! As the business grew so did the Kitchen department taking on good Quality Fabrics and decorative tableware for the your kitchen. Wexford was a thriving town and it now demanded a supplier of high-end interiors and Barkers filled that niche…. We now stock an excellent range of beautiful lamps, mirrors, furniture and soft furnishings from the best of Irish, German and French suppliers.

Our most recent addition to the store has been the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Collection – one of the world’s most respected experts in the field of decorative painting. We are delighted to be the exclusive stockist in Wexford.

We are passionate about the products that we source for Barkers and always aspire to offer our customers a unique shopping experience with a personal touch. We look forward to welcoming you to Barkers, Wexford’s leading lifestyle and home interiors store.
