Bretzel Bakery

William is the custodian of a bakery that started in 1870 :-). The Bakery is well known to generations of the Dublin Jewish community and still known as the Jewish Bakery with it’s Kosher status re-established since William Despard took it over in 2000.

They have an extensive range of breads and of their current mix of 30 different doughs nearly 20 are real bread doughs with the latest being their traditional Dublin turnover.

They have four products listed in the finals of Blas na hEireann.
(French Baguette, San Fran Style Sour Dough (both new in 2017), Croissant and Pain au Choc).

You can see a list of their stockists on their website here.

Sourdough September:

They will have sour dough starter available for collection at their Lennox street bakery.
They also plan on giving a talk or two, but dates not yet decided.


  1. I was wondering if there’s any update on when Bretzel Bakery may have sourdough starter available? I’m really keen to give it a go. Thanks, Leon
