UHT / Long Life Milk - Where in Dublin?

    Taking my mam away for a few days to a Spa that doesn't have a kettle / refridgerator in the room. She can't go an hour with out a cup of tea and thankfully has a travel kettle for such circumstances.

    But where in Dublin could I find milk that can survive at room temperature for a few days?

    Thanks for any info!

    Tesco! Normally around the eggs/ baking, rather than the milk.

    LIDL stock this, although confusingly it's kept in the fridge!

    Also most Polish food shops stock it, they seem to like it for some reason.

    The Viva milk is available in most supermarkets, but there is one snag: it only comes in litres. [green carton]

    It keeps perfectly in the carton, anywhere: but once opened it is supposed to be refrigerated. However it does keep pretty well, even then, in a cool room.

    I'm well familiar with this issue from summer camping in a camper van without a fridge, and the litre packs are really too big for two people for a weekend, and I often end up throwing out the last end.

    In Northern Ireland, for some reason, you can buy the 500ml size at supermarkets and I always snaffle a few when visiting, very handy to have!

    Next time you're in McDonald's just steal a load from over at the napkins, or order a cup of tea and keep asking for more...

    dealz do 2x1L for 1.50.

    Other option is dry creamer stuff, or dried milk. A tub might be too big but it can be used for cooking.

    Why not just ask the hotel for a small jug a couple of times a day? Stand in a bowl of cold water from bathroom and get some ice from the ice machine.. should be straight forward if decent hotel...
