This is an amazing place if you like cheese. Personally I think they have the best selection in Dublin. I mean, they have a special counter just for Bleu cheeses, how brilliant is that? I have found the staff are friendly and very knowledgeable, their prices are very reasonable, and finding them is very easy as they are located right off Grafton Street. If you are looking for a proper cheesemonger, this is where you want to go.
Om... I love cheese.... and Sheridan's Cheesemongers has lots of excellent, quality cheeses. We left here with four different types and we had an excellent evening of cheese and wine. The highlights of the four for me was the Ardrahan semi-soft and the Cashel Blue.
However the staff left us a bit miffed. We felt slightly in their way to be honest (it is a small shop), so two of our party of four left after we had two cheeses picked as they felt a bit uncomfortable.
While waiting to sample more cheese that we might buy, it took another customer to point out to the staff that we were waiting to be served (which was mighty nice of her to be fair). Yes, we still here and yes we still want to try more cheese if that's OK. We'll pay real money and all.
Three stars for cheese, no stars for the staff.
This is a place to know for all French expats missing their cheeses....
Whether you are more into blue cheese or camembert, the shop offers a great selection of cheeses from various countries, with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. It is also conveniently located near Grafton street and St Stephen's Green, in case you want to head out for a little picnic.
You should be ready to pay a little more than what you pay in most supermarkets, but the quality is worth the price and it is a nice change from the usual cheddar.
Simply the best. Great selection of top quality cheeses, great service. Cheese paradise. Taste before you buy, then buy as little or as much as you like, they cut it right off the cheese wheel.
This place has been reviewed before, but I just wanna give it up for the mongers, especially my favorite employee of the cheese "A" from Germany. I can call her on Saturday and on Sunday she brings my order to the Dun Laoghaire Farmer's Market close to where I live. I just stroll over there, have a nice chat with "A" in my native language and bring the good stuff home to the French lady. That's customer care with two capital Cs.
The cheese is really good, too! Try St Nectaire, Delice de Bourgogne, Tomme de Chevre and a soft Marcellin! Feel like God in France.
I'm only a recent cheese convert and up until recently was put off going in here due to the nasty waft of air that smacks you in the nostrils every time the front door opens. But, now considering myself a cheddar obsessive, I've been going for harder, stronger, smellier blocks of orange and Sheridans is yer only man when lookin for a good block of cheese.
They also do wines, so if you're looking for a fancy night in, make sure you stop by.
Sheridan's just got a little bit better -they're selling pizza kits! Granted, these dine-in dishes of delish aren't cheap: a base is €6.95, passata is €2.95 and the buffalo mozz rings up at €2.95 (there's also tuna on sale but I'm grossing out just trying to conceptualise a hot tuna and cheese pie), all in all you'll end up paying €12.85, not too far off from what you'll pay to let Bistro Bianconi throw one together deliciously for you.
But still, nice to see this perfect cheese shop expanding the offering!
If you love cheese, you'll love Sheridans. I also thought it was impossible for so many people to know so much about cheese, but the staff are amazing.
Sheridan's have all the cheeses you could dream off. There are so many it's mind boggling. I love soft cheeses (but not goats cheese) so I had a beautiful selection of brie, camembert and some others that I can't remember the name of when I had some friends over for dinner. Also had to include the obligatory smelly, blue cheese.
Sheridan's don't just do cheese either. They also do lovely pestos, olives, sandwiches, parma ham and lovely specialty meats. It's a little bit expensive but it's the real deal. Splash out.
This place is not to be missed. Fresh meats salami ham cheeses olives crackers wine chocolate. Need I say more? I shop here weekly.
This is a gourmet shop that really stands out and a haven for anyone with a palate for cheese. Love their old-fashioned look combined with the up-to-date selection of best cheeses available from Ireland and Europe. I even love the thick smell of ageing cheese that welcomes you when you step inside.
This place brings me back to France where you go to the cheesemonger for cheese, the bakery for the baguettes and grab a few bottles in the wine-shop next door. You'll probably find everything you're looking for and more, from brie, goat cheese, smoked cheese, Bresse Bleu, cheddar and parmigiano to cheeses so old they might just walk out the door. And if you have a hard time choosing your platter, the staff will let you try little bites of heaven until you find the perfect combination! Great place with fantastic service!
We had a really good experience here. Very knowledgeable staff, and very happy to let you try any cheese until you find the one you love!
We got some really great farmhouse style cheeses here that definitely made our travel sandwiches a fancy treat!
This is a fantastic shop, and I visit their market stall at Cows Lane in Temple Bar for cheese most Saturdays.
I go to the store on South Anne's Street for the cooking chorizo and the salsiccia they stock is delicious! I find these especially hard to find in Dublin.
This place can get a little cramped but the staff are friendly and they try to help everyone out, even when the shop is too full to properly navigate. They offer samples if you need them and suggestions if you want them! They also carry crackers, olives, and even bacon spread! Everything you need to enjoy your yummy cheeses.
Sheridan's is a small and compact spot. Up the stairs is the till and the cheese-mongers behind it wearing their traditional white coats. It has an old world rustic charm to it and the dark green front is in keeping with the early 1900's vibe that it has pulsing throughout it.
The selection of cheese is fantastic, so if you take your cheese very seriously or want to get a different type of gift or if like me, you have a curiosity and want to grow your understanding of cheese, then you must come here. It goes without question that the staff know their cheese and most importantly have a passion for it.
I was planning a party for some friends, old and new, so I thought the best thing and simplest idea was to create a cheese platter. Above the help that they gave me with regards to the cheese they made my life so much easier by advising the type of wines and beers that would compliment my selection. It's hard to judge something like that when alot of what I bought was some varieties that I had never tried before.
Prices are reasonable. The unanimous positive feedback from the folks at my party confirmed to me that they really appreciate and understand their product. They also made me look good and knowledgeable as I regurgitated what they told me which is always a good thing!
If it were not for this explanation explaining that I wanted this to be the shortest review ever on Yelp.ie then I'm pretty sure I'd win (if indeed there were a prize for the shortest review...which there isn't).
As it stands I've totally ruined my record breaking attempt so here's the review anyway...
Mellas fudge (vanilla), sublime
...oh, and they sell cheese too
Cheese, glorious cheese! If you are passionate about your brie and parmesan, make a beeline for this place!
Cheeselovers will be in heaven wandering through this shrine to all the world's quality cheeses. Sample some of their different varieties from around the world, indulge in some lovely black olives or fetta-filled peppers, or treat yourself to a parma ham sandwich.
Sheridans has some great deals too, the one on offer at the moment is a 12 euro dinner for 4 - it's just the ingredients, mind you, but buy them, take them home and whip up your very own tuna and parmesan pasta to well and truly impress your friends and family.
Sheridans also stock a small range of wines, so you can get everything for your dinner needs here.
It took me a while after I moved to Dublin to realize the reason I couldn't find all of the cheeses I loved was because I was looking in the wrong place. I searched grocery store after grocery store and only one (Fresh on Camden Street) yielded even the most basic of my cheese needs (yes needs) - goat cheese. Such a normal item back home seemed to be rather specialized here in Dublin. I was dismayed. But then I found Sheridan's.
Sheridan's, as it turns out, is the right place to find cheese. They have lots and lots of it. And it's gooooood. From ooey gooey Taleggio that stinks like feet to salty manchego that's best dizzled in honey and topped with quince paste. This is the real deal. They have everything and more and for me, it's heaven on earth.
The staff is really helpful and will let you sample cheese if you're not sure what you're getting yourself into (or are pretending you don't in order to get free cheese, though who does that kind of crazy thing [me]). They can also recommend cheeses to go together for a cheese platter, if you feel like impressing friends at your next dinner party.
Pricey stuff, but then again most of the food out there is cheap crap anyway. It's a welcome change.
I just wanna give it up for the mongers, especially my favorite employee of the cheese "A". I can call her on Saturday and on Sunday she brings my order to the Dun Laoghaire Farmer's Market close to where I live. I just stroll over there, have a nice chat with "A" and bring the good stuff home. That's customer care with two capital Cs.
The cheese is really good, too! Try St Nectaire, Delice de Bourgogne, Tomme de Chevre and a soft Marcellin!
Stepping into Sheridan's transports me back to a time when you didn't get your cheese in a supermarket but went to a specialist shop, where the staff knew what they were talking about and every cheese had a distinct taste... I love cheese! There is nothing better than cheese and crackers with a nice bottle of red... well, not a lot of things I mean. And what's great about Sheridan's is that you can also get cured and smoked meats here- they do some fantastic salami. Even though the shop is great, you can also drop by the cheese stall at the Temple Bar food market on Saturdays...
Accidentally discovered this shop whilst looking for an optician and loved it. Great selection of cheeses and very friendly service. They also have a nice selection of cold meats and I will defenitely be back again and again to sample and buy some delicious cheese here.
Oh my god, I LOVE cheese. This place truly is a cheese lovers paradise. They have everything from brie, to stilton. Camembert to feta.. the list goes on.. They give you tips on choosing the right cheese wedding cakes and do gift hampers - amazing - and even tell you how to care for your cheese. You can also join the 'Cheese club' (I know, right? :D), where for €35 a month they will send you a selection of 3 of the ripest cheeses and send them to you whether at home or at work! Talk about a great gift for someone! They also have a selection of wines because obviously they go hand-in-hand for cheese tasting and vice versa. Just thinking about it is making me crave - must go back soon!
Grafton Street and its surrounding area is brilliant for independent shops, once you look past past the mobile phone and fast food places. Sheridan's Cheese Mongers on South Anne Street does exactly what it says on the tin - it mongers the cheese.
Stepping inside is like entering Willy Wonka's factory for a cheese lover. The chilled rooms are filled with giant wheels of cheese in all sizes and types, just crying out to be eaten. The staff know their stuff and are happy to dispense any cheese advise that you might need. They will also let you sample anything before you buy!
Cows cheeses, goats cheeses, sheeps cheeses, reindeer cheeses (okay I made that last one up) they are all here to remind you that Ireland does a wonderful line in cheeses - including some particularly marvellous goats cheeses and blue cheeses.
Don't forget to buy some Oat cakes as well!
Bought a special hamper selection for my boss and his family there this Christmas, the staff inside were so helpful and I really enjoyed shopping there. Will definitely go back for more cheese and pate when prezzies are needed. highly reccomended!
