Originally supplying a ‘ York Type Paving Stone ‘ from our sandstone quarry near Roscrea, Co. Tipperary which is by the way Ireland’s second oldest town. We now supply all types of natural paving stone sourced from Ireland and abroad.
When we started selling stone in www.wesellstone.com back in the late 90’s, apart from selling our own sandstone there was a strong demand for Liscannor Stone from Co Clare on the Wild Atlantic Way. Kilkenny blue limestone was also available but mainly used in civic or commercial projects.
In www.wesellstone.com we now supply natural stone paving in crates with
Selected colours & textures.
Non slip surfaces
Riven or sawn edge.
For example we have studied the types of stone used in Ireland during the last few hundred years and our objective is to offer the public the nearest colours and textures to these stones sourced from all over the world as some of these characteristics are not available anymore. Where possible we source in Ireland, however if we cannot obtain a satisfactory quality or quantity we will source it elsewhere for our clients.
We explained earlier that people used to look for Liscannor Stone back years ago, however if you go to West Clare there are various types of stone from this region.
Moher Stone which is quite dark nearly black in some quarries from near the Cliffs of Moher . Doolin or Lough Stone sourced nearer to Doolin as you go down the steep hill from the Cliffs Of Moher. Then there is a lovely Grey with fossil ( similar to Moher Stone except in colour ) sourced further south in Miltown Malbay and Connolly.
We refer to this type of stone as Doolin Stone or Miltown Stone on our website.
Another favourite of ours is Valentia Slate from Kerry, it is dark, hard and very versatile.
We refer to this as Valentia Paving.
The cream sandstone is popular in Ireland particularly in Donegal & Tipperary and parts of Mayo near Killala. We call this Tipperary Sandstone Paving.
We have Kilkenny Blue Limestone Paving another favourite.
Don’t forget Granite Paving Stone in our capital Dublin. The Premium Granite is coming from the north of Spain ( Galicia ) with lesser quality options available from China etc.
To conclude the blog like a good wine you get what you pay for and we make every effort to source the best quality and value for our clients.
