Topic Wiki

List of TR's:

Kashrus
The KCI - Kashrut Committee of Ireland is the only Kashrus in Ireland.
The Rav Hamachshir is the Rabbi of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation Rabbi Lent - A Chabad Rabbi.

Kosher
SuperValu has a great Kosher Section with Fresh bread, challah, cheese, frozen/fresh meat, vegetarian (Tivall) products, frozen meals (can be reheated in non kosher ovens), wine and other basics are also available.
Open till 10:30pm seven days a week.
Address: SuperValu Braemor Road, Churchtown, Dublin 14

Bread Irish Pride Bread is Kosher (Re Pas Yisroel The Oven is officially turned off twice a year around Christmas Day and middle of the year around June 30 - Both times it is turned back on by the Rabbi. Some rely on this some don't, mainly because in this case there is no system for alerting the Rabbi in case the factory experiences an issue. Frum people in Ireland rely on this bread for 3 weeks after the fire is re-lit.)

Catering:
There is only one Kosher Certified caterer in Ireland, Melanie Stein.
Melanie cooks in the kosher kitchens of the Dublin Hebrew Congregation and is under basic supervision (ie there is not a mashgiach constantly on site).
Her email is melaniestein123@gmail.com
The Standard cooking is NOT glatt, nor cholov Yisroel or pas yisroel.
(In Development is a Mehadrin option - by RCArentals in conjunction with Melanie/Rabbi lent - updates to come.)

hopefully booking BOS-DUB enroute to TLV at the end of the summer, flight would land at 5:30 am or 8:05 am. i can then take a flight out either same day at 5:15 pm or the next day 5:15 pm. is it possibly enough to do it the same day or should i stay overnight. (i do things fast)

I guess that depends on how much you want to do. Obviously, you'd have to stay in the DUB area and not go to other parts of Ireland.

You could pull off Guiness Factory and Jameson Factory in 1 day. I also passed by a Leprechaun Museum near Jameson that might be interesting. You could go to a pub, but I'm sure it's not the same in the daytime as it is at night.

From MC above - perhaps you can fit this into a day...

If you're into Titanic, the museum up in Belfast was fabulous for an aficionado and great for a stam person. (i.e. my wife LOVED it, while I thought it was nice)

No Kosher restaurants. Could be some sort of a place to buy meals if you order in advance. Search the thread - someone mentioned a place at some point.

There's a leprechaun museum that I passed. Perhaps it's interesting?

Hinda Bloom (email upthread) delivers excellent double wrapped meals which the hotels are familiar with.

The bakery is nothing to write home about and doesn't feel too kosher
