Welcome to Dick Dooley Family Butchers

After many years working in the Meat industry from small shops to Supermarket Management, I (Dick Dooley) opened my first shop in Ballyragget in 2004. In 2010 I relocated to Castlecomer, and the success of Ballyragget immediately followed , in what is a more highly populated area. We soon outgrew our premises and bought the old Gerry O'Dwyer shop on Barrack Street. At this point we introduced a Deli and Bakery to our offering , which has been hugely successful. Due to the hard work and excellent customer service of our brilliant staff, we continue to thrive . Selling locally produced quality food is what we do.

For your convenience, we are based on Barrack Street in Castlecomer.

  • Barrack Street opening hours are Monday to Saturday 7am till 6pm and Sunday 7am till 2pm.

Dick Dooley Family Butchers are proud to have been named Friendliest Business and Best Overall Business in the Kilkenny Love Local Business Awards.
