On The Pig's Back

Based in the English Market in Cork, 'The Food capital of Ireland', On The Pig's Back's stall is now the centre of attraction for its fabulous selection of Farmhouse Cheeses and Charcuterie Products, and is also particularly renowned for its Award Winning range of Home Made Pates & Terrines... as well as its French Gourmet Food. We have an extensive Catering Menu as well.

A second outlet- Cafe/ Deli opened in Douglas in 2009 and is also a busy spot for Artisan food shopping, lunch, food tastings, and special events as diverse as Art exhibitions, concerts, plays, food festivals etc. 

"The Food company brings together the very Best of Traditional cuisine from both Ireland and France by supporting local food producers and at the same time introducing Irish Consumers to French Traditions..."

The Irish saying 'Ar mhuin na muice' literally translating 'On The Pig's Back' means 'To be in luck, in a prosperous happy state '.... So you are 'céad míle fáilte' a million times!
