5 of the best artisan food delivery services in Ireland

These gourmet artisans are delivering tasty meats, cheeses, veg, pastries and more to Irish doorsteps


Since the start of self-isolation, there has been one constant on my mind: food. 

I find myself dreaming of all the gourmet bits and bobs that made eating out so luxurious, like juicy, premium burgers or fresh cakes and Nutella donuts.

Well, we don’t always have to settle for storebrand basics. Irish artisans have started and improved their online delivery services, so we can get quality meats, cheeses, pastries and more at reasonable prices.

Here are five delicious artisans that offer speedy delivery: 

Sheridans Cheesemongers
