Kennedy's of Enniskerry

Pretty enough to make you stop and look if you’re driving past, Santina and Andrew Kennedy’s lovely speciality store and café is worth a quick call if only to buy one of the gorgeous Bretzel Bakery loaves that they sell as well as using in the café - and, once you’re inside the door, you’re sure to be tempted to stay awhile to have a good browse, and maybe a bite to eat.


They’re well known for their great home-made soups, salads and Santina’s good home baking. Andrew, who is a barista, takes special pride in their excellent Java Republic Fair Trade coffees - which, for many, would be reason enough in themselves to make this a weekend destination.


And, for a caffeine-free lift, you’ll also find refreshing juices too - raspberry, elderflower and apple, for example, including sparkling apple juice from The Apple Farm at Cahir.


It’s about as different from an ordinary food shop as it could be, with every item on sale personally chosen and much of the stock made up of locally produced organic foods - they’re lucky to have good producers nearby, including Janet’s Country Fayre, Kilmurry Jams and Old McDonnell’s Farm.


The Kennedys make the proud claim that over 80% of their foods are produced in Ireland, and they also stock locally made crafts - if only more of this country’s main visitor centres and tourist outlets could say the same.

Sad as Dubliners were to see the 2012 closure of one of the city’s most iconic businesses, the Dublin Woollen Mills (where James Joyce, no less, once worked), it is cheering to see Elaine Murphy and the team from the equally iconic Winding Stair next door serving u ...
