Teddy’s ICECREAM Store
Dun Laoghaire, Ireland
Teddy himself, real name Edward Jacob started things in 1950. Teddy’s ice cream parlour has been selling ice cream from a small shop overlooking the wide expanse of Scotsman’s Bay, at the end of Windsor Terrace. It also sells boiled sweets, iced caramels, candyfloss, coffee, confectionary and a wide selection of beach apparel.
Teddy’s has a way of inspiring loyalty, devotion even, from customers and workers alike. Rita Shannon, one of the oldest serving member of staff over the years says; “I came to work for a two week holiday stint and stayed for over 40 years.”
