About us


A Brief introduction to Shanettes

Shanette Sheds are the original, off-site, sectional built, Steel Buildings & Sheds manufacturer in Ireland.

Established in 1983, we are the largest & longest established manufacturer of Sectional (Panel form) steel buildings in Ireland. Make no mistake, we are different to the other shed companies you might see, we are professional steel building manufacturers with a proven, reliable track record.

Our buildings are designed using the latest 3D computer modeling to withstand the forces of wind and snow to European construction standards, and are built using high strength structural steels. We produce quality steel buildings at competitive prices, direct from the factory. With over 32 years experience manufacturing sectional-built Steel Buildings & Sheds, our level of expertise and know-how is second to none. If you want a well built steel shed that is manufactured with strength, safety and quality in mind look no further.

The strength, quality of workmanship and finish of our products are unmatched by another shed company and if you don’t believe us please visit our sales and display area so we can talk to you and show you!

How it all began

It all began in the late 1970’s when husband and wife team, Sean & Ethna Keoghan (hence the name “Shanette”) identified a gap in the market for quick built outdoor storage buildings manufactured from steel cladding. The idea was to have a quick fit storage product that would be secure, convenient, movable & maintenance-free. These new product’s would also have to be pleasant to look at and safe and easy to use. After much planning and research the first samples were produced in the late 1970’s & full production started in the early 80s.

The company is now operated by the second generation of the Keoghan family in the form of Managing Director Darren Keoghan, Production manager Thomas Keoghan and Office manager Elaine Keoghan with Sean and Ethna still having prominent roles in the company.

Our sectional sheds were a very new concept back in the 1980s, showing our company founders were ahead of their time. A lot has changed in nearly thirty years, today off-site construction is common place, due to the benefits it offers to the customer, from quality controlled manufacture to exact build times on-site.

Humble Beginnings & the progression of sectional-built Steel Buildings & Sheds manufacturing

From humble beginnings we now operate from a 14,000sqft manufacturing plant with an extensive display and sales area, located in Kilbeggan, Co. Westmeath in the heart of Ireland. It is a purpose built production facility, with the very latest computer controlled steel working machinery, so we can provide our customers with safe and strong steel building’s manufactured to exact building standards( EURO Code 3) . No other sectional shed company can make this claim.

Our factory manufactured shed systems ensure you the customer get what you want, when you need it! Today and every day, we give our customers the best value and quality in steel sheds, so you can put your trust in the Shanette brand.

For over 32 years our steel buildings have been delivered and installed with great pride into homes and businesses all over Ireland by our own fleet of trucks and experienced delivery crews.

Constant research and development has lead Shanette Sheds to become the No.1 large scale manufacturer off-site produced steel Sheds and garages in Ireland today and for many years to come.
