Coolfin Gardens Bakery

Coolfin Gardens is a fully certified organic bakery based in the heart of the midlands, run by Jonas Hein and Layla O’Brien. Jonas is originally Swiss but has been living here most of his life, and always missed the delicious breads of home. At Coolfin Gardens Bakery he is recreating these tastes of home with the highest quality organic ingredients and with a nod to the breads his mother used to make.  Layla O’Brien is the public face of the business as Jonas’s hours are far from sociable, and she can be found manning their market stall in various locations around Galway and the Midlands. 
Layla says, “We set up 1 year ago on our organic smallholding in the Midlands and were recently mentioned in Food & wine magazine’s May issue in their top 100 “hot new things of the year” and we were ranked No.1!  We source the finest ingredients from around the world to produce our delicious range of unique breads. Our selection includes delicious yeast loaves crammed with seeds, hearty and distinctive sourdoughs and a large range of wheat free spelt and rye breads.  With the likely event of Farmers markets setting up in Moycullen and Athenry in the coming months there will be a few more locations to purchase this delicious bread.”
