Bee Meadow Seed Mix 100g
Lorraine Toomey
Bee Meadow Seed mix

I would highly recommend the Bee Meadow Seed mix for your garden. If you have a free patch of ground in your garden that you don't use, the bee meadow mix would be ideal as you will be helping the bees and also have beautiful flowers to look at.

Bucket Pouring Aid
Padraig Murphy

Good idea


Wired foundation is best


Bought this as an upgrade (manual mechanical handle to electric motor) - a bit finnicky and awkward to set up, but once all connected works a charm - can reach fast speeds.

First Class Service

I received a first-class service from the Staff @ Donegal Bees. Thanks for all your help and support.

Hive Pack

Its my third hive , all good. the construction is sturdy I particularly like the plastic runners for the frames, which can be scraped clean with no ill effects to the polystyrene walls.

I prefer SN5 to SN4

I really like the junkier SN5 frames. It's more solid and stronger. The piece of wood that holds the foundation is larger too and easier to nail into place. Hard to say whether it prevents brace comb but even if it doesn't I prefer them to SN4s This was the first time that I ordered them preassembled and I have to say it was well worth the extra money! Great service too. Everybody is always very helpful.

Plastic Uncapping Tray with Plastic Strainer (depth 200mm)

Excellent product delivered promptly by Donegal Bees. Used them for years....they are the best!

Huge feeder

Fantastic capacity of syrup and great insulation means that this unit could even replace your crown board over winter for built in insulation. Very solid poly, better than other poly brands

Perfect queen rearing nuc

Quality build and smart design features, large enough for queen rearing without worrying that bees will abscond. The option to turn it in to. 2 way mating nuc is handy. Would recommend
