Food and Drink

Soundbite: Shane Ryan – FEED

FEED is a new lunchtime venture that prepares hearty, seasonal lunch-boxes for daily delivery to Dublin’s offices, while also helping to provide meals for some of the world’s poorest children. Founder Shane Ryan talks to us about the importance of the triple bottom line at FEED.

Barfly – Bow Lane

Pontification aside, the transformation that has happened within Bow Lane is striking, and they have done a classy job on it.

Barfly: Flash Harry’s

Flash Harry’s occupies a peculiar space between the past and the present. In terms of décor, ambiance and the cold hard facts in front of our eyes, what we have here is a burger restaurant with a cocktail list, as opposed to a bar with a sideline in gourmet grub.

Barfly – The Jar

The Jar has hardly shattered the homogeneity of New Dublin Bar style, but it’s pizza-power may give it a vital extra push.

Barfly: The Chelsea Drugstore

It remains to be seen what sort of appetite exists in Dublin for embedding oneself in an uneasy landscape of postcard anachronism to enjoy a high quality, innovative drinks menu, but if the Chelsea Drugstore’s looking backwards is a somewhat tired schtick, it’s more Coen brothers than Baz Luhrmann in its skirting around sheer bombast.


Soundbite: James and Grace Gannon Cloonconra Cheese

Produced from the milk of the Irish Moiled cow, an ancient breed that was almost extinct a few years ago, Cloonconra Cheese has a unique, distinctive taste that has already earned it a gold medal at the prestigious Irish Cheese Awards in Ballymaloe. We talked farming, flavours and sustainability with James and Grace Gannon, the father and daughter team behind the Roscommon based newcomer.

Barfly: The Swan

There is a certain satisfaction in being part of the grand local tradition of doing shady shit tucked away in the low-lit hindquarters The Swan.
