“Once you have twins, you feel like you can do anything” – Introducing Caitríona Keating of Dungarvans Dún Artisan Bakery

Age: 37

Out of: Waterford.

Bold beginning: “I always knew I wanted more. I wanted to improve,” says Caitríona. In July 2021 she and her partner Fergal Walsh opened Dún Artisan Bakery in Dungarvan. “I was on maternity leave with my twins and I was like, ‘What am I going to do with my life?’ But once you have twins, you feel like you can do anything.” By then, she had trained as a chef, earned a degree in culinary arts and worked in restaurants. Waterford already has blaas, the region’s famous floury buns, so she decided to do something different.

In blood: Her grandfather and father were both self-employed. “My dad always said, ‘Don’t do this for someone else.'” And so a business was born. They started growing berries in their field.

The long game: Nothing happened in the first two years of planting. They took a deep breath and waited. Now their native Irish berries go into their pies. They pick the berries with the children and enjoy life outdoors.

division of labour: Caitríona bakes the sourdough bread and takes care of the business. “We do the entire fermentation and there are only three ingredients – water, salt and flour. It’s really healthy and good for gut health.”
