Cast aluminium has many qualities that make it a popular material for outdoor furniture and a fantastic choice for patio and garden furniture in Ireland. Here’s why:

-Rust Free and Ireland Proof!

Cast aluminium garden furniture has the traditional, classic look and feel of cast iron garden furniture but with many added benefits: one of the most important is the fact that cast aluminium doesn’t rust.  We could say that cast aluminium garden furniture is weather and Ireland proof. Your cast aluminium outdoor table and chairs will resist anything the unpredictable Irish weather will bring: soft days, mixed weather, Atlantic wet summers...

-Strong and Durable

Aluminium being a metal and non-rusting means cast aluminium garden furniture is not only strong but also durable. Cast aluminium garden furniture will last many seasons and celebrations!


Cast aluminium garden furniture, unlike cast iron pieces, is much lighter and easy to move around if you have a spacious area or need to move your outdoor furniture for any reason. While cast aluminium garden furniture will resist the winters outdoors well, make sure you don’t leave it outdoors on very windy or stormy weather, as chairs will fall and get scattered. Stack them and store them in a sheltered/safe area or secure them to the ground or wall with weights or rope.

-Low maintenance

You won’t need to worry about looking after your cast aluminium garden furniture set. Just a quick wipe with a damp cloth will be enough to clean tables and chairs. Seat pads and parasol will need to be looked after more carefully, to make sure the fabric doesn’t get wet or fades with sun exposure. Garden sets tend to come with detachable pads so they are easy to remove and store neatly indoors.

-All sizes and colours

Cast aluminium garden furniture comes in all shapes, sizes and colours.

At the Rathwood Furniture store we stock garden benches, loungers and sets ranging from the intimate bistro for 2 to spacious party-friendly sets seating up to 10.

Cast aluminium garden furniture might be finished in light tones such as cream or mushroom; as well as darker colours such as hammered bronze and black. Pads and parasols will add a touch of uplifting colour. Because they are detachable, these can be replaced over time to give your garden set a new fresh look.
