In a rural barn in Ireland's Eastern county of Meath, there is a superb cheesemonger. Sheridans sells the very best of cheeses and offers all manner of other accompaniments from bespoke jams and sauces to Irish wines. With the self-titled 'Hungry Breton In Ireland' Franck Le Moënner on hand, the welcome that we received today was both warm and charismatic.
Although the Meath premises are rural and a little off the beaten track, the sheer quality and variety of food fayre on offer would make any capital city proud. Sheridans has its own named brands, but there is so much more to browse around. There is even a cosy cafe where you can mull over your potential purchases.

This place is all about great food and caters for people who appreciate high quality produce. There is a real sense of enjoyment and celebration to the place, and it is little wonder that the annual Sheridans Irish Food Festival draws thousands, who enjoy food, drink, music and children's activities in the May sunshine. The 2019 festival is on the 26th May.
