“Fine example of how far fresh food has come in Dublin!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2012

Small shop near Chrustchurch on Thomas St. What can I say, two talented people taking a risk to make ice-cream from scratch from fresh ingredients. Batch size they told me is only 4 litres at a go and made there on the premises.

Light years away from industrial whipped ice-cream ( which I also eat! )
Well priced at about the same as a posh industrial branded ice-cream but so much more flavour. If you ask very nicely, they sometimes even make ice-cream birthday / wedding cakes as a special order ( some begging may be involved from what I heard!! )

Had the strawberry and balsamic. Wow. Fresh, tangy but not too sweet. Loved the Guinness one as well. Sadly they are closing for the winter soon and given how basic the little shop is hopefully they may pop up next year in a better venue.

Dublin needs more of these places. Wake up Dublin council folk and do more to genuinely help talented people make a success of their micro enterprises!

“The Missing Link”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012

Meeting a Polish friend at the cinema recently, he bemoaned the absence of really good ice cream in Dublin. I was delighted to be able to direct him to Furlong and Kehoe! If this is only a pop up shop for the Summer (?!?!?) of 2012 then I would suggest you get there fast. So often the thought of an ice cream promises much more than it delivers. Not here: this is handmade heaven. The only other ice cream parlours that have stopped me in my tracks were Rayas in Seville and San Crispino in Rome. (Whenever in either city, a pilgrimage would be obligatory).
Excellent value compared to the "big brands" too.
