The story of Cavistons Glasthule, Co Dublin begins in 1948 when Peter's uncle James had a casual pint with the Glasthule's then fishmonger. On awaking the following morning, he found he had bought the business for €300! Cavistons was born and after the shop passed to first his father and then himself, Peter began expanding , armed with his sense of adventure, his love of food and his gregarious personality..

Ask for directions from anyone to anywhere in Glasthule, Co Dublin and the chances are your answer will include Cavistons as a landmark, if not a benchmark. Such is the popularity of Peter Caviston and his restaurant and food emporium.

Peter and Executive Chef James Coffey's cooking , conveys a passion for food and hospitality, which makes the  Christmas in November special and unique .

Francis Brennan loves Christmas and entertaining. Christmas begins as you drive through the gates of the Park Hotel Kenmare  and see the lights of this nineteenth century country house twinkling…  and Peter and Francis waiting to welcome you.

Now you can look forward to the true Spirit of Christmas in November – with traditional food and wine, corks popping, classic films, sitting around an open fire and deciding what you would like from Santa!.
