Fallon & Byrne, Dublin

The Food Hall at Fallon & Byrne is ‘a proper grocers’. Very proper. Fallon & Byrne stock fine artisan food of every kind. This includes a range of gingergirl jams, chutneys and preserves. The gingergil range can also be found in their very fancy hampers.

64 Wine Glasthule

Good and Green
I first met Elaine and John McKeogh some months back when we both started trading at UL’s Farmer’s Market (every Tuesday). I adore all of Elaine and John’s produce and greatly respect their philosophy on food and sustainable living. Be sure to visit their excellent website to keep up to date with all the drama and excitement that a smallholding brings.

st tola cheese
Handmade organic cheese with no additives or preservatives. Great website. Great produce.

Ravenhill Guesthouse Belfast
This has to be one of my favourite guesthouses in Ireland. Beautiful, elegant rooms, a warm welcome, a great location and, the best organic, homemade breakfast for many, many miles. I didn’t want to leave!

nice day designs, Ruth Crean
Ruth has a real eye for design. Her stall at the Riverside Market in Limerick is often too much temptation for me! Be sure to check her out. For those of you who cannot make it to the Riverside Market you can buy online through ebay on:

chicken out!

The chicken out campaign was started in the UK by the wonderful Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall. Though the campaign (for now)is targetting the uk industry, I think it gives us food for thought in Ireland.

Too often I think the media in Ireland are missing the point on the whole factory ‘farmed’ chickens versus free range/organic chickens as they focus on the taste of the bird and the cost more than the appallingly factory conditions involved in the factories. So sign up now and read all about the campaign. Please.
