Many restaurants and cafés closed for almost two months now, which has had a devastating effect on the industry as a whole. Fortunately, many businesses were able to pivot and offer takeaway, online shopping and more.
Throughout the crisis, we have been publishing our #ShopForIreland guides every day to highlight how you can support local businesses that are trying to survive. We received countless messages asking us to put all of our #ShopForIreland listings into one guide, so here it is - Our ultimate #ShopForIreland guide.
If there is anyone that you think we should include on our list, be sure to get in touch on our social channels with your suggestions.

Essential Food Trails, deliveries nationwide
When Siobhán Sloane set up Essential Food Trails, which offers food road trips in the Sliabh Aughty region of east Galway, the only transport issue she had to think about was the best bus to hire. Now she has swapped coaches for couriers, and has turned her business into an online farmers' market delivering hampers all over Ireland. “We can't visit the farms, markets and restaurants in the area at the minute, but I wanted to keep some focus on the region for when we travel again,” she says.
The range of hampers on offer include the Taste of Sliabh Aughty box, which is €35 and includes Kylemore farmhouse cheese, Sliabh Aughty hot honey, Gran Grans Food chutney, Irish whiskey marmalade, rosemary and garlic-infused olive oil, and Foods of Athenry multi-seed toasts.
