7 gazebos from €40 to €12,000 for your outdoors entertaining

Paddy McKenna

Who knows for how much longer we can entertain guests at our homes.

But if you are thinking of having the one other household over for a visit that Level 3 in Ireland permits, then receiving in the back/front garden could be the way to do it.

“Will I bring my brolly/raincoat/waders?” your guests might reasonably ask.

“Don’t bother, I’ve got a f**king giant brolly in the back garden,” you’ll nonchalantly reply.

Yes, all your garden needs to transform it into an all-weather entertainment hub is a g̶i̶a̶n̶t̶ ̶b̶r̶o̶l̶l̶y̶  gazebo, of course.

We’ve had a scan through some of the options available…


Only five listings under ‘gazebo’ and three of them were for replacement gazebo roofs so methinks the stock has been depleted.

But there is this one on-sale for €236.

What it lacks in practical weatherproofing, it makes up for in swankiness.

Screams – one outing before being left in the garden shed to turn into a mould monster – but your envious neighbours will be talking about it for months to come.


Not a huge selection, in fact, this is the only one they stock, yours for under €50.


‘Do Aldi do gazebos?’, I hear you ask. But you already knew the answer, dintcha?

Just under €70 and it doesn’t look complicated, which must be applauded and welcomed.


‘And do LIDL do gazebos?’, we hear you ask. Shockingly, they do not. Not one that we could find in our extensive five-minute Google search and scan of their website.


Homebase have a wide selection of gazebos and garden marquees ranging in price from under €100 to their most expensive listing under ‘gazebo’ – the ‘Forest Cedar Roof Gazebo’ which retails for £10,500 (€11,580).

It says here they’ll even come and install it for you.

If you were thinking of splashing the casheesh, we regret to inform you that it is sadly out of stock.

Dunnes Stores

Did do this attractive cream gazebo (avec curtains) but it’s sadly no longer available.

And that is that for Dunnez boutique on the gazebo front.


Had 13 listings under the ‘gazebos and garden awnings’ section. Those included this Home 3m x 6m Weather Resistant Gazebo with Side Panels for the very specific price of €147.56.

Side panels all important when the (November) rain is coming in sideways from various angles.

DoneDeal/Adverts etc.

And if that weren’t enough for you, happy to tell you that the Donedeal, Adverts etc. cups spilleth over with various offers on used and new gazebos.

We’ll leave the rooting there to you, but have a gander at what’s described as a MARQUEE MASSIVE 6X12 MT HEAVY DUTY GAZEBO – POD !

Room within for you and your one visiting household, having binged on the French Open, to play your own indoor clay tennis tournament.
