Traditional breads - especially wheaten bread, and other handmade Irish breads and cakes - are the speciality at this family-run craft bakery
The Cookie Jar Bakery
The Herron family have run this craft bakery since 1965.
James Herron specialises in traditional breads - especially wheaten bread, and other handmade Irish breads and cakes - and The Cookie Jar also invents some new ones from time to time, for special occasions and seasonal treats for example.
Small family run craft bakeries like this used to be ten a penny in Northern Ireland and, although there are less of them than there used to be, good baking is still one of the nicest things about Northern Irish cooking - and small bakeries are benefiting from the current revival of interest in artisan foods.
Also at: The Market Square, Kilkeel.
Open Mon-Sat 9-5.30.
