The best bakery in every county in Ireland

Sarah Finnan

A handy list of where to find the best bakery in every Irish county, because this is need-to-know information.

If there’s one thing I have a nose for it’s freshly baked goods… I must have been a professionally trained sniffer dog in a past life because I can scour out pastries like nobody’s business. A skill that has served me well thus far and one that really ought to be shared with the world.

Which leads us to the below, a list of the best bakeries in every Irish county so you’ll never be left sans cruffins, croissants or country sourdough again. Some are brick-and-mortar locations, others operate in a number of different cafes/at markets but commit these names to memory and you’ll be just fine.
