Cork’s most creative foodies are rolling with the punches.
With their award-winning gastropub closed until autumn due to Covid-19 restrictions, O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill has announced that a brand new venture: O’Mahony’s Stores, a new farm shop and deli will open on August 12th, 2020.
“Throughout lockdown, we ran weekly Neighbourfood markets and were constantly asked when we could make this a more regular thing.” said proprietor Victor Murphy.
“We are very excited with the launch of O’Mahony’s Stores as it enables us to sell amazing produce to our customers that we would only use ourselves in the restaurant. We will also have a new range of freshly made food in our deli section as well as hot drinks and treats.”
It’s a permanent fixture too; the new store will remain open when the restaurant and bar returns later in the season.
So what’s on the menu?
The new delicatessen items will include dishes from the kitchen that can be taken away and a new ‘[email protected]’ range.
Fresh-baked pastries alongside Golden Bean Coffee will be available from the counter; a sit-down cafe-style option to enjoy hot drinks and baked goods will also be available both inside and outside, all in line with social distancing guidelines.
“O’Mahony’s Stores will also sell a delicious selection of freshly baked sourdough breads and quality locally grown vegetables, fresh bread from Bread and Roses, Gloun Cross Dairy milk and dairy products and delicious apple juice from Future Orchard,” added Victor.
There will be a selection of Irish cheeses, free-range eggs from Adams eggs, Greenfield yoghurts, cured meats, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, vinegars and sundries from ‘Olives West Cork’. For the sweet-toothed they will stock the most incredible chocolate goodies from David Chocolatier. Natural beauty products from the Sun Vale Soap Company and Little Red Skincare will also be available, so bring a bag if you’re visiting and stock up.
O’Mahony’s Farm Shop will officially open August 12th, from Wednesday to Friday 8am-7pm, and Saturday and Sunday 12pm-6pm.
