Donnybrook Fair in Dublin has been retailing great fresh food for over forty years.  It's reincarnation ten years ago to the present format has led to three ultra modern flagship shops in prominent city locations.  All carry the same ethos - to strive for excellence in providing a culinary experience to all customers.  A natural progression then for this well established business is the Donnybrook Fair Cookery School at Morehampton Road.

Classes take place in the new purpose built, state-of-the-art cookery school kitchen above the fine food store. A contemporary kitchen fitted out to the highest standard with TV screens enhance the learning experience. The aim of the school is to focus on furthering customer education around food, the importance of sourcing fresh food locally, seasonality and nutrition, and helping course attendees create wonderful nutrititious dishes.

Resident Chef and Cookery School Manager Niall Murphy brings a love of food and travel to the course programme here. Classes are designed for all abilities, with a mix of sessions from half days, full days, evenings and weekends. He keeps things simple and fun - all the while imparting a vast knowledge to his students.   Educational classes include Starting your own Business - run in two parts - for those who want to make a career in food.

More informal sessions feature Cooking For Men and Culinary Skills, both hands on sessions designed to maximise on the learning experience.  Of course these are only samples of what you can expect to find on the schedule.  Classes and course topics change all the time - with seasonal classes and demonstrations also. KIds and teens can also come here to learn one of life's most valuable lessons - how to fend for themselves in food terms in the big wide world!

Donnybrook Fair's constant food message is well passed on here, to old and young cooks alike.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
