Glasraí & Goodies Delicatessen

Our December visit to the deli

Let me tell you about a great little deli nestled away from the bigger towns of Ireland. Glasraí & Goodies can be found on the main street in the village of Gowran, Co. Kilkenny . It is a food lover's delight. 

The stunning church ruins in the village

When we lived in Ireland, we often made the 110km round trip, just to get a bite to eat and a hot drink. The shop itself is tiny (food is for take away only) and is jam packed with produce such as fresh fruit and vegetables, handmade chocolates,cheese, coffee and cured meats. 

Cup of hot tea to keep me warm

At the end of the counter there is a small deli which serves fresh rolls, wraps, sandwiches, tartlets, salads and paninis. The fillings are all laid out beautifully in Nicholas Mosse bowls. 


Beef roll without beef

Siobhán, the proprietor, always welcomes us with a nice chat and seems to know every customer by name and orders (well my order at least). 
Unfortunately, I am such a creature of habit that I have never veered away from my usual order so I cannot tempt you with the entire menu on offer. 
I continually get the Beef roll without the beef which is a rustic roll filled with Swiss cheese, pesto, red onion and mixed leaves . While Ian usually orders the Turkey roll which has turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mayo, mixed leaves and brie in it. There is a generous helping of meat so perhaps one day I will order mine with the beef and Ian can have it with his. 


The rolls are wrapped lovingly in this pretty black and white paper and placed in a brown paper bag, along with the rich chocolate, homemade brownie that I usually order to finish off my perfect lunch.

If the thought of petrol station delis turn your stomach and you are in the area or passing through - Glasraí and Goodies http://www.glasraiandgoodies.com is definitely the place to go for good value, fresh, artisan food. We will be visiting again the next time we are home.

Let me know if you go.
Thanks again for stopping by,

With Love,
