Overview

A number of years ago, West Cork was lucky enough to be hit by the powerhouse that is Ruth Healy. Her ultimately stylish Urru Culinary Store fhas risen from relatively quiet beginnings to being one of the most talked about shops in the land.  Ruth is a Slow Food exponent and that philosophy follows through in absolutely everything she does. You won't find anything here that has not been produced with love and care - from the exotic olives oils from single estates in Italy, Spain, France and Greece, to West Cork's famous artisan produce, Irish pickles, jams and chutneys, and finest fresh breads and pastries. And that's just for starters. Keep browsing those shelves, and believe us, you will want to keep browsing.

You'll find cookbooks from classic Elizabeth David to modern day Rachel Allen, great kitchen tools and gadgets, and a fine selection of boutique wines from Cork's own Bubble Brothers. This shop also incorporates an artisan green grocer section, where local and seasonal fresh fruit and vegetables are on sale, alongside a range of exotic organic fruit and vegetables which come from seasonal growers around the world.  After all that retail therapy you'll need a good cup of coffee, which you will most certainly find here. And perhaps one of Urru's famous sandwiches that have had rave reviews from some of Ireland's top food writers.

Daily changing fresh organic soup made in Cork and the sandwich of the week are favourites among regulars. Sit at the sweeping beech handcrafted counter, or at the large table at the rear of the shop, eat, sip, chat to your accompanying diners, and above all, enjoy. If you want to impress someone with a fabulous gift, you couldn't do better than send them a beautiful Urru hamper, packed with all these goodies, in a big box wrapped in crackly cellophane and tied with Urru's corporate colours in a big orange bow.
