We normally go bits from either Dunnes/Supervalu or Tescos, although moreso Supervalu. Just got bits and bobs as we needed them, ie, bread, milk, potatoes, etc. We didn't do a big shop, so we spent say 20€ to 30€ at a time.

We tended to eat breakfast/dinner (ie,your evening meal) in the cottage, whereas sometimes grabbed lunch out.

Okay as I read your question you are asking the price for a hotel or pub/restaurant Sunday lunch after mass. Usually for an adult in rural Ireland you can budget around 15 - 20 euros per person and for younger children you ask for a half portion per person at around half the adult price. Remember also that soft drinks (coke/minerals) push up the price considerably.

Tesco Ireland is way too expensive for many things (even their UK stores are getting silly, price wise).. Aldi and Lidl have stores in Carrick on Shannon & Cavan for basics.

yes I found supervalu pardon the pardon best value. If I remember correctly there is one not that far from there.....but this is going back to remembering October 2011, so it might be a bit patchy.

Yes Tarry, Supervalu is just off the main road on the Boyle side of Carrick.....beside the best Chipper ever , Morellis :-) There is a Lidl store on the opposite side of the road.

That would figure as we stayed near Boyle in this tiny hamlet. We tended to use it on the way back

I like Lidl also. :).
