About Us

From its modest fish-shop origins in the mid 1940s, this family-run business has expanded to provide an impressive range of products spanning the seafood and delicatessen spectrum.

With the assistance of our trained, specialist staff, Cavistons is also a major supplier of quality food to many of Dublin's leading restaurants and hotels. and with a thriving export business, particularly of smoked salmon, the company continues to go from strength to strength.

Based in the heart of Glasthule Village in Sandycove, South county Dublin, Cavistons provides a source of quality produce to a wide spectrum of customers often willing to travel from afar. We are close to Sandycove Dart Station, which provides excellent accessibility, linking us to the greater Dublin region.
