Olive Delicatessen and Cafe

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Deirdre and Peter head towards a decade of dedicated service in Skerries, and Olive is the star of the town. Deirdre and Peter moved north from Temple Bar – where they ran the cult Café Irie – and opened Olive in October 1995. Almost ten years later, their standards strain inexorably for the stars and, year after year, Olive has simply gotten better and better. The combination of deli and café which they have operated since 2013 allows them complete control over sourcing and cooking for their café menus, so the provenance of everything in Olive is simply blue chip: you simply cannot buy better foods than the Irish artisan goodies you will find here proudly displayed and cooked here, all of them chosen with fastidious attention to detail. A great, hard-working crew – almost 25 people work together here between the café and the deli – back the tireless efforts of the the owners, and Olive is a precious part of Skerries.
