Who We Are


Urru is a culinary shop with a café that has Irish food at its heart.

We work to help you shop. We feed you tasty, simple food and hope that you will discover something new very time you visit us.

We are ambassadors for real Irish food & drink producers, continuously finding new and exciting products. We also source world ingredients for adventurous cooks.


If you love cookery books and kitchenwares then you will be very happy here: for example Joesph Joesph, Bodum and Contigo Bunbury  Boards; Tonfisk; Slated tableware

The café is set within the shop and is very sociable. Using only products that we sell, we serve sandwiches, soups, salads and sweet treats that really satisfy. Our popular house coffee for the past 16 years is Sumatra Lingtong from Mc Cabes Coffee in Wicklow and we serve Irish blended loose leaf teas.

We are also part of the wider Bandon town community and the regional and national food community and always involved in something:
