Founded in Dublin in 1488, Rathborne are the world's oldest candle company. Over the centuries they have pioneered new techniques in candle making from their Dublin factory. Their candles are woven into the social fabric of Ireland and have provided light for homes and streets for over 500 years.
It all began on Wynetavern Street, Dublin where John G Rathborne founded the company. Candles were an integral part of people's lives from the 1630s and became the key supplier for the city of Dublin. Their candles made Dublin city and Irish seas safe at night as they were used to light the houses, streets and lighthouses for its citizens and visitors.
Over 500 years of experience Rathbornes have been continually developing techniques and materials for their candles.
