About Us

Where it all began

Stonehouse was established in early 2000, but the network has a history that encompasses more than 60 years of proudly serving the Irish retail market. Stonehouse is a product of the merger of Keencost Centres (Ireland), which has been trading since 1975 and the National Wholesale Groceries Alliance, which was established in 1961.

We are Irelands leading Independent Wholesale and Distribution Group. Rooted in our family heritage Stonehouse Group is a network of 18 Independent Wholesale, Cash & Carry and Distribution Centres with a network of 21 outlets nationwide. Our members are 100% Irish and we pride ourselves on our local, personal, professional, flexible and quality level of service to each and every customer. Our values remain as always based around Teamwork, Respect, Openness, Growth and Trust. We strive on carrying out all aspects of our business through respect and fairness.

Progressive business leading the way in FMCG & Wholesale

As Stonehouse approaches its 25th year in business, it’s a huge milestone for the group, a consequence of uniting businesses with the great vision of becoming the leading Independent Wholesale & Distribution solution in the Irish market.
