This gorgeous outdoor market is the perfect place for a family outing

Just a short jaunt from Dublin, Killruddery Farm Shop, Garden Centre and Grain Store Restaurant is open daily 9-5. They also host an outdoor market on their beautiful 17th-century estate with plenty of Irish-made gifts for sale.

Itching to spend your Christmas cash? That’s exactly what outdoor markets are here for – that and supporting Irish makers, of course.

Killruddery is currently hosting a lovely farmer’s market every Saturday from 10am to 4pm.

If you haven’t heard of Killruddery yet, it is a family-owned, 17th-century estate in Bray, a heritage house and gardens with a sustainable and bio-diverse farm, Grain Store Restaurant, Farm Shop and Garden Centre and regular Saturday farmer’s market.

And this past holiday season, the estate magically transformed its open-air Horse Yard into a winter wonderland with local vendors selling a range of Irish-made fare, street food and crafts.

Aside from the local vendors, Killruddery has a range of lovely gifting options available, including hampers filled with Irish-made goodies, fresh and fragrant plants from their garden and creative experiences.

You can ‘gift a garden’ by giving your green thumbed loved one with a Killruddery Membership, offering year round access to country walks and magical picnic areas in their gardens during the open season, or a botanical workshop.

For the foodie in your life

For a fun and unique gifting option, Killruddery is also offering a Friday Night Supper experience in the new year.

With foraged ingredients from the resident garden (and local producers), head chef Niall O’Sullivan and his team create a bespoke menu of eclectic flavours with winter vegetables and consciously reared meats, always responding and creating more of what customers love.

Guests will dine in grandeur in the Grain Store Restaurant beside a log fire. Expect an à la carte menu, accompanied by a wine list of organic, biodynamic and natural wines and warming winter cocktails – ideal for a sophisticated dinner date or as a gift for the foodie in your life.
