Irish restaurant awards logoOur restaurant, seating 30 people, offers our customers a very special evening, starting the six course dinner menu with canapés and aperitifs at the turf fire or in the conservatory and ending with tea/coffee and petit fours in the same comfortable surroundings.

Our menu is based on seasonal local produce, with the majority of our suppliers living within a ten mile radius. We offer local craft beers and a small interesting wine list.

Dinner menu price: €45 per person
