Our Story

At Donnybrook Fair, our ethos has always been a simple one: devoted to food. From humble beginnings in the early 2000s, we’ve grown from a local, South Dublin market into a food business that can be discovered in neighbourhoods from Greystones all the way to Malahide. No matter what the location, we hold a singular belief that food is to be celebrated in all forms; from the everyday salad to luxurious meals, each and every morsel prepared with an emphasis on quality ingredients and cooking. So be it a snack from our deli, a lesson in our cookery school or one of our luxury gifts, we will always strive to ensure that our devotion to food makes it an experience you will never forget.

Our Ingredients

We take great care to source only the freshest ingredients, both in what we sell and for the foods we create. We never, ever use additives or preservatives in any of our food ranges, meaning you can enjoy nothing but the taste of what you buy: honest, home cooking. And for the more adventurous of you, our list of specialist ingredients is extensive, giving you a chance to really explore the world of cooking.

Our Wine

When it comes to wine, we aim to provide you with a selection that distinguishes itself from the ordinary. Chris Gifford, our head of wines, carefully searches for and selects only the best from around the globe, with many coming direct from the vineyards themselves! From sparkling bubbled to top quality fine vintage, if it is bottled and corked you can be sure to find it here.

Our Suppliers

Whether it be carefully sourced meat or select produce, we pride ourselves in only working with only those who are outstanding in their fields – often literally! Specialist fruits arrive frequently from Rungis Market in Paris, while our chief supplier of beef James Tormey is renowned for his discerning eye when it comes to the very best. The benefactor is always you, with flavour that is a cut above the ordinary.
