About the Bakery
A desire to produce a variety of fine breads locally and the Real Bread Ireland campaign inspired Orla Gowen to establish Bácús Bhréanainn at her home in Brandon in 2009. After completing a number of specialist courses and with the support of Údarás na Gaeltachta her micro bakery has now moved to Páirc Ghnó na Choille in Dingle.
Bácús Bhréanainn supplies bread to shops and restaurants in Tralee, Killarney and on the Dingle Peninsula and also trades at Tralee Farmers’ Market every Saturday.
