About us

Here it is our story!

We are Julie & Paul, a French couple, who have arrived in Ireland in October 2016 to start a new life. We opened our shop in Clonmel in March 2018. We now proudly support about 80 small Irish designers and makers.

We are offering goods such as baby items, wall decor, cosmetics, clothes, candles, cards, jewellery…all handmade!

We are concerned about the environment and the health that why we started to sell our own natural laundry detergent and washing-up liquid.

To reduce wastes we offer loose dry food. Customers can buy nuts, tea and coffee, spices in their own jars.
In the future, our goal is to offer more products without any packaging.

Welcome to Chou’s Cottage online website.

Julie & Paul.

All our orders are sent by using old boxes or envelopes. We give them a second life in adding a little bit of biodegradable tape.
