Bradley's Specialist Off-Licence & Foodstore
Michael Creedon’s shop, Bradley’s, is not just a classic shop: it is an essential and unmissble part of the food and hospitality culture of Cork city. The team in the shop are right at the cutting-edge, which means we go to Bradley's to discover what is new in the world of Irish drinks and speciality food. Yes, we know that it's our job to keep up to date with what the artisans of Ireland are doing, but, whilst we do work hard at it, Michael and his team are always ahead of us.
How do they stay at the cutting-edge? Simple: they are the first port of call for every artisan and craft brewer who is making something new in Ireland, and those artisans and craft people all respect the team here, which is why Bradley's is first on their to bring their latest production list. The array of Irish – and international – craft beers, for example, is peerless, so if you seek a White Hag, or if it is your destiny to chase after a Mountain Man, then you will find the Hag and the Mountain Man in here.
But there is so much more to Bradley's than just beers: the wine and spirit selection is superb, the food and fresh food selection is superb, and service is just right: polite, expert, but confidently understated. The only downside, of course, is that it's easy to lose the run of yourself and to spend a ton of money. No matter: it will all be spent on the best food and drink in Ireland.
