Our review in this month's Food & Wine magazine was of the delectable and uber-popular Canteen
, a funky, lively pop-up eatery on one of Limerick's many beautiful Georgian streets.
Early last month, despite the snowy weather, we spent an enjoyable morning there sampling its many brunch options, with...Read More

Running from the 5th -...Read More
