Travelling west on Beara from Glengarriff towards Castletownbere you will pass through a small village called Adrigole. Situated at the foot of the Healy Pass Adrigole is the approximate halfway point between those two towns, Pegs Shop is a convenient place to pull in to for a break. Peg’s serves coffees, teas and snacks and is a handy stop for all your needs. WiFi is there for you too.
Peg’s Shop has been run by the family for close on 70 years, originally built to serve as the local Post Office in 1933; the Post Office was relocated in 1948 where Peggie began the grocery business which continues to this day. Today Peg’s shop is run by and Maureen Sullivan and Margaret, daughter and granddaughter.
Peg’s has everything for the local shopper, passer-by, or self-caterer. Fresh meat, delivered twice weekly, fresh vegetables, mostly locally produced, wines as well from further afield.
Peg’s always has a fresh takeaway supply, sandwiches, the ham is a real treat supplied by O’Herlihys locally sourced, sausage rolls, pastries pasties and for the youngsters, a nice Pick ‘n Mix of sweets (if Mum and Dad don’t mind).
Pick up a newspaper or magazine enroute and replenish your supply of fuel for those cooler nights.
You are always assured a genuinely warm Irish welcome at Peg’s.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Maureen and Margaret.
