May Bank Holiday Gorey

Enjoy a yummy breakfast at Partridges before hitting the shops


Aside from being without doubt one of the best shopping towns in Ireland, Gorey is filled with independently owned cafes!  

If you are planning a shopping visit then be sure to set aside enough time to take sufficient breaks in one of our many cafes!  

But they say breakfast is THE most important meal of the day so how about some delicious French Toast from Partridges on our Main St! 


So good!
