A sloped roof is the traditional choice for a veranda. Perfect for homes with a large area between the ground floor and first floor window. A sloped roof allows more sunlight in your veranda but also allows heat to escape creating a much cooler room to be enjoyed on warm days.

The best of the best but only for those with deep pockets. A fantastic store offering high end garden furniture and barbecues but be sure to bring your wallet, this is not for those looking for something cheap and cheerful. The staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgable and I love visiting, sadly usually only for some Weber BBQ accessories. When (yes when) I won the lotto I’ll be back to fully kit out my outdoor garden kitchen!

I recently purchased a Kamado Joe Bbq from Outdoor Scene. Wonderful people to deal with, they went out of their way to deliver in time for a birthday celebration. The delivery guys were extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this store.

What Our Customers Are Saying

‘’Couldn’t recommend The Outdoor Scene highly enough for their verandas and garden rooms. Eamonn and his team offered an excellent level of customer service from the initial consultation, to the site visit and finally the delivery and installation. Patrick and his team did an amazing job installing the veranda, patio and building a bespoke wall to finish the entire project to an exceptional level. We look forward to spending a lot of time in our new garden room.‘’
– Linda T, Dublin

“I wanted to pass on my appreciation (..). It’s not often one comes across as professional, helpful and friendly tradesmen as Damien and Daniel.”
– Finta M, Dublin
“We recently moved into a new house and were looking for a veranda type of roof, attached to the house, to cover a reasonable area in the back garden. We wanted a strong enough construction but at the same time not to overshadow the kitchen (as it is north facing and not quite sunny).  I was happy to find out that Outdoor scene were able to provide all that and make a glass roof instead of polycarbonate. That gave us the desired see through effect we were looking for. Eamonn visited us and explained everything in detail. He also managed to tailor the construction to fit our needs. Although there was a delay with the part’s delivery from Germany ( due to transport problem outside the Outdoor Scene control), Eamonn and John were very helpful and walked a second mile to make sure we were well looked after. “
“Now we are looking into the possibility of adding walls (?glass) to the roof so that this space may be even more enjoyable. “
Thank you Eamonn, John, Patrick and Michal and all the team of Outdoor Scene”
– Petar & Lina, Co. Dublin
‘’ We are delighted with the result. Thank you all so much. It has been such a pleasure dealing with you from start to finish and we would have no problem recommending you to anyone. The three lads who did the installation were a pleasure and are top class workers.”
– Eileen D, South Dublin
