Dittys Home Bakery

Ryan's Arbutus Breads, Cork

Fragrant. Warm. Fresh and promising. Comparable to a temptress just waiting to lure you in and get you hooked. This is how bread lovers feel when they see a loaf not long from the oven.

Ditty is a famous name in Castledawson. A bakery was started here in 1963 by a master baker of the same name. Now it's in son Robert's hands - and Robert Ditty is famous in his own right. The skills and expertise of this second generation baker are carrying on the family tradition. Robert learned his trade beside his father, then took over the business after his father's death in the 1980's. Enthusiasm and passion soon followed his original reluctancy.  

Today the bakery at Ditty's produces an array of baked goods, including Robert's range of beautifully packaged oatcakes, now exported to some of the finest food stores in Ireland and the UK. Working with fellow artisans, Robert has created a variety of these little oatcakes, which match perfectly with cheese. Try the Smoked Oatcakes or Oatcakes with Gubeen cheese - and you'll see how innovative and forward thinking this man is when it comes to developing products and forging valuable links within the artisan food industry. 

But essentially, this bakery business has been built on old fashioned treats - buns, cakes, tarts, traditional Northern Irish soda breads and farls, and a holy host of other baked goodies. These are available for sale in the shop, and are included on the menu in the coffee shop too.
