Builin Blasta

Builín Blasta Café & Bakery is an Irish language café in the heart of Connemara. Located in an artisan craft village in Spiddal, Co. Galway- this scenic café is loved by locals & tourists alike. Chef/owner Heather Connolly brings her Canadian flavours and combinations to her menu and mixes it with a true Irish Céad Míle Fáilte, winning awards and accolades year on year.

Builín Blasta’s menu features a long list of homemade products that have been developed into a retail range including dressings, chutneys and our almost-famous Smoked Onion Mayo. Heather is delighted to be launching 3 of her products – Smoked Onion Mayo, Honey Mustard Dressing & Caesar Dressing onto SuperValu shelves as part of the Food Academy programme.

The Smoked Onion Mayo is new to market and totally unique-it must be tasted to be believed! At once, sweet, creamy, smoky and tangy- it is THE perfect accompaniment to burgers, chips, sandwiches & more. The Builín Blasta dressings also pack a punch with an authentic Caesar that will clear a room (as a good Caesar should!) and a classic honey mustard that delivers on quality.

The SuperValu Food Academy has provided a solid foundation on which to grow and develop the Builin Blasta retail range. It’s workshops and teachings were valuable to our product development, branding and business planning and the programme provided insight into the wholesale market and the best route to market including realistic expectations on sales and business growth.

We will be using our product development programme to hire new staff at the cafe and always support local business and charities through prizes and sponsorship.
