Keith O’Farrell, a proud local Ennis man, returned home from travelling in early 2020 when the pandemic hit Ireland. Stuck at home during lockdown 1, Keith began making sourdough bread. First as a hobby but then began selling it to friends and family via Instagram. Keith became very popular. He would make fresh loaves of sourdough bread in the early morning and then deliver them himself on the back of his bicycle.
Keith’s found that his home bakery wasn’t big enough for his newfound demand. He ceased operations in early December 2020 and began to put a plan together for a proper bakery Ennis people would love and be proud of. A bakery that only existed in Keith’s imagination for years but now, he was going to make it happen.
He found the perfect location in a historic Ennis building, often known as “Quinn’s Shop” where he promised to do the building proud. His sourdough bakery offers a wide variety of freshly baked goods such as sweet treats, delicious Anam coffee from the Burren and of course, sourdough bread.
