Ireland Guide

Irish artisan foods make great gifts and support small family-run businesses, so how about making up a DIY hamper with your favourites? For ideas, I’ve drawn up a delicous Top 20 selection of my own favourites from around the country – and a Top 20 shops too, which represent the many dozens of superb businesses offering the best of Irish produce, and often offering all-Irish hampers too.

20 Great Irish Artisan Food Products for Gifts and Hampers (random order):

This is a balanced selection from the foods we’ve enjoyed most this year on our travels around the country. Two – Sally Barnes’ Hot Smoked Albacore Tuna and G’s Gourmet Jams Rhubarb & Ginger Jam – were in the Great Taste Awards Top 50 this year (along with several other Irish products). Any one of these beautiful products would make a lovely small gift, or you could combine several to make up a home-made hamper. Most of the shops recommended below will carry a good selection, and most will also offer hampers.

20 of the Best Speciality Food Shops for individual purchase and/or hampers (random order)

This is just a small selection of great food shops from the growing number of speciality food stores all around Ireland. Most will stock a good number of the products recommended above, and/or offer Irish artisan food hampers. A gift token for a speciality food shop would also make a great gift
