COVID-19 Irish Food Delivery Services [MEGAPOST]

In these testing times, panic buying won’t solve anything, neither will us all running to supermarkets. We need social/physical distance and to stay at home and away from other people as much as physically possible during this coronavirus pandemic. Whether you’re housebound and self-isolating through choice or corona-quarantined for the next couple of weeks if you have the virus or not, food and drink deliveries are running for the most part across Ireland winging fresh, local, Irish produce right the way to your door. Order online, pre-pay and then receive your Covid food delivery at a human contact distance.

We’ve rushed this together just to have structure of who is doing/offering what, but we’ll update daily as we get information and any changes or amendments. Please go direct to those businesses linked for further information, as this is just us collating and pooling services available. We’re not covering click and collect services here, just to note. Home deliveries only.

Note: None of these covid food deliveries are affiliate links or sponsored in any way.

Bread 41 Dublin’s ultimate new wave bakery with a cult following, Eoin Cluskey and co. have worked out the logistics for online ordering and delivery and are now introducing it in a limited and controlled way. Only delivering between 3km and 5km from their cafe (2km or less, you can walk :)) they will offer a limited range of breads and pastries (bearing in mind they specialise in sourdough so they need time and it’s a long process). Keep your eyes peeled on the following link for details:

Mueller & O’Connell Bakery Order sourdough to-your-door as fresh as possible. Mueller & O’Connell Bakery, based in Abbeyleix, Co. Laois, are shipping sourdough in loaves of four for €19.50 to customers (local priority, but Ireland-wide) and the novel thing is that the loaves are just underbaked, so you can refresh in ten minutes in the oven when they arrive, or store instantly in the freezer.

McCambridge Bread Take the stress of out baking fresh bread at home and order the simple-to-use and stress-free Bread Tin Bakery kits from the iconic McCambridge Bread. From traditional soda bread mixes to gluten-free mixes, they come in packs of six or twelve, including mixed cases and they also have gluten-free porridge oats available to order as well. The cost of shipping is included in the prices on site.

Bakealicious Navan-based bakery Bakealicious and owner Eimear Reynolds is offering a postal cake ordering service, where you can order from their digital cake cabinet and have sweet treats delivered to your door. Viennese Swirls, brownies, cupcakes, lemon bars, cookie mixes, macaroons and more, with free shipping on all orders over €50.

Ursa Minor In Ballycastle at the northern coastline of Northern Ireland, Ursa Minor is both a bakery and emporium of provisions and delicious stuff. They are operating local deliveries via their online site, including locally-delivered fresh loaves each week and even fresh croissants and almond croissants. Snap them up quickly!

The Little Mill Looking for flour? The Little Mill from Kilkenny are selling online via Kells Wholemeal online portal in large quantities. Shipping we believe is calculated at checkout, and our order of 16kg of bread flour delivered to us in Louth was an extra €5.

Riot Rye Also operating a web store is Joe Fitzmaurice’s Riot Rye, but they’ve suspended their flour orders until mid-May due to overwhelming demand. You can still buy baking equipment, but their flour is only released once-monthly we believe.

Natural Bakery Dublin Having re-opened in the second week of May, The Natural Bakery is now offering an online order and home delivery service (Dublin only, €15 standard fee) for cakes, bakes, breads and more dropped direct to your door. With flour in such high demand, home-bakers will be glad to hear that The Natural Bakery is selling strong and plain flour by the bag, as well as yeast. Special occassion/celebration cakes can also be ordered from their site. They are also operating most of their stores (except Baggot Street and IFSC branches) 9-5pm Monday to Saturday with social distancing and health and safety measures in place.

For now, Sarah and the team are offering order ahead and collection only (and you’ve gotta be quick!) though if you are “elderly, immunocompromised or a front-line health care worker and would like to request delivery in Tramore or its surrounding areas, we will do our best to look after you”, they have said.

The Cupcake Bloke [UPDATE: SOLD OUT] Enterprising isn’t the word for Graham Herterich and his partner Daithí Kelleher, and between their bakery space in Smithfield and The Bakery – their bricks and mortar deli-cafe in Rialto – they are seriously popular for cupcakes, cakes, brack and local provisions and with Easter on the horizon during this Covid-19 pandemic, this pair are par for the course. UPDATE: Unfortunately this Easter delivery offer is now over, but their shop in Rialto is staying open through this crisis with all the necessary regulations implemented.
