The fishing business continued across generations until as recently as the late 1990's when the Boyne's salmon stock became depleted.
In 2002 The Flower Yard opened on the same site continuing the tradition and two years later Riverside Home & Gift opened it's doors for the very first time.
Riverside Home & Gift was established with this long history in mind and aimed to promote the local region by launching an amenity which would offer a great service as well as create new jobs in the area.
It's also with this long history in mind that we try to maintain certain values such as great customer service. That's why we still do free gift-wrapping & free parking and aim to make every customer experience a memorable one.
The Smith family have been operating businesses from the same Mornington site for over two-hundred years. Records show that in the early 1800's James & Rose Smith began selling fresh salmon caught locally from the River Boyne and within a year were providing fresh fish to the finest restaurants in Paris, Berlin and London.
