Tell us about the shop – the look and ambience

It is difficult to miss John O’Flynn & Sons of 36 Marlboro Street in Cork city. If the Bulls Head over the premises escapes your eye, it is surely to be caught by the recipe book in the window. Depending on the page open on a given day the mouth watering pictures are sure to tempt you inside.
Once inside this crisply clean shop, you are greeted warmly by Simon or Patrick, both eager to serve. Let the experience begin…..

Briefly describe the range of stock

It’s best if you have a list and know what you want. Otherwise you are likely to be tempted by the perfectly arranged displays of well stocked and beautifully arranged meats and fowl, unequalled anywhere in Cork.

If it’s BBQ time you can choose between 16 varieties of sausages made in-house, home made burgers sitting next to locally produced black and white pudding, pancetta and bacon.

For the more discerning you can choose from duck, venison, rabbit and pigeon. However, I stick more closely to the delicious cuts of lamb, beef and pork.

Who owns/ manages the shop

Patrick and Simon O’Flynn

And the service

What makes the whole experience special is the service and good humour. Patrick and Simon always take the time to ensure you are comfortable with the recipes you intend to apply to these meats.

Why does this shop deserve an awardIMG_0805

What I love about visiting O’Flynn’s butcher’s shop is the warm welcome, friendly atmosphere and the laugh I get which is all part of the experience.

O’Flynn’s in Marlboro Street,Cork have the best quality fare. A taste and experience not to be missed. It’s a real legend!
