Our Story

The Bia Folláin journey began in March 2007 when owner Trish Moloney decided to open a health food store in the small village of Tulla, County Clare. Trish has been involved in the health and wellness sector all her life and before Bia Folláin opened its doors to the public she was running a very successful Reflexology and Therapeutic Massage business called Health & Harmony in the local area. Trish is also a qualified Homeopath having trained at the Burren School of Homeopathy.

Her passion for nutrition and a strong interest in the harmony and balance of a macrobiotic lifestyle ultimately inspired Trish to open a health food store. The focus on natural organic food and a reduction or complete elimination of chemicals and artificial ingredients is at the core of Bia Folláin.

And now at the close of 2020, a year like no other, Bia Folláin has gone online like so many local businesses in the present climate. Trish’s website and online shop is a virtual branch of her Tulla shop and possesses the same charm and friendly customer service as if you were here in person in Tulla.
