Owner and manager Shauna Kelly was born into a world of good food and entrepreneurial spirit. Her father Sean is the well known butcher from artisan butchers Kelly’s of Newport, located right next door where her brothers and uncle also work. It seems it was written in the stars for Shauna to join the family in their quest to bring good food to everyone.
However food and the hospitality industry weren’t Shauna’s first choice of career. She studied Social Care in Sligo and worked with Western Care for a number of years before answering the call of adventure and travelling with friends in Asia and Australia where she discovered new and wonderful cuisines. However being a home bird, Shauna returned to Newport and her roots. Encouraged by her family and confident in her love of food, she opened Kelly’s Kitchen in April 2012. Supported by an exceptional team, she has discovered the truth in her father’s maxim: ‘work is not work when you love what you do’.
