SOFT DAYS, BOTTLED

Soft days, thankfully we get them. Lots of them! From these soft days Celtic Pure sources its water directly beneath Co. Monaghan's ancient Drumlin Hills.

This award winning water is bottled at source by the McEneaney family to bring the rare qualities of this purest of Irish drinking water to you from deep below the natural limestone filter beds of rural South County Monaghan.


The water from these springs has been used by the McEneaney family for well over 200 years and such was the public demand for the water’s qualities that Celtic Pure was established commercially in 2000. Today we operate a state-of-the-art bottling plant close to the original family spring which now produces 100m bottles a year.


From humble beginnings, the Celtic Pure brand is now the largest independently owned brand and offers a complete range of bottled water to the retail, food service and wholesale sectors to satisfy all tastes for the work, home and play environments. A leading supplier of private label bottled water, Celtic Pure caters for an increasing demand market from the UK and Ireland. We pride ourselves in our top quality products backed up by a friendly and reliable customer service and expertise.
