Donal O’Keeffe and his team run one of the most outstanding food and wine stores in Ireland.
There is no other shop like O’Keeffe’s. Most of us can scarcely imagine how you could orchestrate the marriage of a quaint country store with a cutting-edge artisan food specialist, but bringing these two complementary elements together is exactly what Donal O’Keeffe has achieved. And Mr O’Keeffe has further managed to run the store with solicitous charm, so that shopping here is always a pleasure, a real treat. Not only do you find all the vital Irish artisan foods you could wish for, you also enjoy the process of being in a store that has served the people of Cork for generations, and served them in that unique Cork style, with wit, humour, and polite, self-effacing grace. Mr O’Keeffe’s achievement is a mighty one.
