In 2018 we got a hankering to make for the Kerry coast and set up a seasonal pizzeria. The mobile ovens we built when we started out in markets a decade ago had seen better days, but owed us nothing. So we designed a new, super-size mobile pizzeria with a custom-built wood-fired oven.

The destination was Waterville, a jewel in both the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way. There, we were hosted by the Sea Lodge Hotel for 3 sun-and-fun-filled months.

We returned to Waterville for the 2019 summer season with the addition of a converted horsebox serving coffee and gelato.

Our coffee, sourced from Giuliano Caffe, an artisanal Italian roastery based in Turin, Italy, went down a treat. As did the delicious range of gelato, sorbets, and the vegan deserts from Healthy Made Delicious.

In 2020, we’ll re-open our seasonal pizzeria, cafe and gelateria on June Bank Holiday weekend. Meanwhile, we keep the home fires burning at our base in the Franciscan Well in Cork city.
