The Rolling Donut is an Irish owned family business founded by Michael Quinlan in 1978. On a trip to London in the early 70’s, Michael saw donuts being made for the first time. It inspired him to start out on his own and bring delicious donuts to the people of Ireland! He originally began trading in Gaiety Green at the Dandelion Market. From here Michael began running a donut concession called The Rolling Donut at concerts, shows and festivals. The little donut kiosk on O’Connell Street that Dubliners know and love was set up in 1988 and over 40 years later continues to make it’s mark.
Michael’s daughters Lisa and Aimee spent their childhood learning all there is to know about donuts. They’ve worked closely with their Dad, growing and developing The Rolling Donut brand along the way. The Quinlan team are committed to continually producing the best and most delicious donuts for their loyal, regular customers every week as well as creating new and innovative Rolling Donut products to excite customers for generations to come.
