In sourcing produce for The Tus Nua menu, David is committed to purchasing from local suppliers where he believes not only do you get the best quality but also the best value. It is this approach that enables us to deliver exquisite healthy meals at affordable prices.

A native of St. Bridget’s Terrace, Killashee Street in Longford, David was not always involved in the food industry. Previously he was a business owner in the construction sector during the Celtic Tiger. When the downturn occurred, David’s business closed.

“I finished up in September 2007 and became a stay-at-home- dad for three years”

It was during this time that David turned to his new passion of cooking and with years of self tuition aided by a stint of working with Nevin Maguire, a talented chef was born.

Tus Nua opens daily at 9am, seven days a week. The lunch menu runs until 5pm daily. Evening dining from 6pm featuring a fabulous is À la carte menu is available on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
