Whether you fill them with fresh fruit or steaming new potatoes, these serving bowls will make any food look even more delicious.

When you picture summer meals, your mind instantly conjure up dishes that are best shared. Whether it’s holding a pasta salad at a barbeque, sliced strawberries sprinkled with sugar, blanched green beans with butter or simply some dressed salad leaves, a good serving bowl will repeatedly find itself at the centre of your table.

As a result, you want to find one that you really love. Whether you prefer something pared-back or a colourful nod to the season, we’ve done the hard work and found plenty to choose from.

Speckles and swirls

serving bowls Ireland
Hot Pottery salad bowl, €46, Liberty

Speckled and swirly ceramics are particularly popular at the moment, and we love their slightly irregular finish. These effects add interest and the appearance of texture, while still being easy to complement with other pieces.

Solid colour

Green stoneware salad bowl, €35.99, Zara Home

Simple and reliable, these bowls are great for those who prefer to keep things pared-back, or prefer the impact of a solid block of colour.

Nature-inspired

Serving bowls Ireland
The Green Daisy Bowl, €14.99, Stone + Beige

From fruity designs to those inspired by the sea, there’s plenty of serving bowls out there that will help set the tone for your summer meal.
