The original Rolling Donut was set up by my father Michael Quinlan in 1978. My dad began running a donut concession called The Rolling Donut and brought it to concerts, shows and festivals around Ireland in the late 70s. Following that, in 1988 he set up the little donut kiosk on O’Connell Street that most Dubliners know and love! 40 years later it continues to make its mark.
I (Lisa) spent my childhood learning all there is to know about donuts & in 2016 decided to expand our range. Our customers wanted filled donuts so I decided to make handcrafted sourdough & vegan donuts making all our fillings in house.
We now have multiple stores & a team of dedicated bakers who make our donuts, fillings and toppings every day in our Dublin bakery. We hope to continue to grow & develop the brand making the best quality handcrafted donuts every day!
