Firehouse Bakery at the Delgany
Patrick Ryan exploded onto the Irish food scene on his return from the UK. With his bread school on Heir Island, his role as bread ambassador for Real Bread Ireland and his bakery and pizzeria in Delgany, where long queues form to buy bread and to sit in to eat, the man is a major player.
A wood-fired oven burns from early morning, when the breads and pastries are cooked. The Firehouse menu offers a home-made soup, all-you-can-eat Firehouse breads with Wexford Home Preserves jam. There are dips and cheese platters, with Laura’s home-made chutney or Gubbeen cured meats. Best of all though, are their flatbreads and pizzas straight from the wood-fired oven, simply served with garlic oil and mozzarella. The only thing you have to face is the queue.
