In a few years time, when people are asking how Tramore managed to gain a reputation as a culinary destination to rival Kinsale or Dingle, writers will explain that the true creators of a town’s name for culinary excellence are places like Cove Stores.
Cove Stores is cool. It has that elusive ambience that only comes when you get a bunch of people working together who are all on top of their game, people who know all the cool stuff, who enjoy sourcing, stocking and selling it, who get a kick from their work. The result is a superannuated retail destination, the place that not only has everything you need, but which is also a place where you discover new delights that improve the quality of your life, and that can be anything from Lilly’s washing-up liquid in the eco-fill station to Blackwater tea gin to jewellery from a local designer.
Cove Stores succeeds because it both summons and reflects the energy of Tramore, and distills it into a delightful experience, filled with both an aesthetic and an infectious energy. And, if you happen to be a visitor to the town, remember that locals will get a take-away ice cream, and then sit on the wall outside Cove Stores to enjoy the ice, and to watch the world go by. That’s la dolce vita, Tramore style.
