Description: This traditional thatched cottage provides a relaxed dining experience with a casual dress code in which to enjoy international and local dishes inspired by our owner Beatrice Tollman, including our delicious signature dish 'Chicken Peri Peri'. It is slow cooked in our rotisserie oven in the main dining area, so mouth-watering aromas greet you as soon as you enter the restaurant. At the front of the building you will now discover a beautifully manicured garden and extended patio area proving a spectacular area to enjoy lunch and sip a cocktail and enjoy the magnificent views of Ashford Castle in the distance. Open seasonally, it's just a short stroll over the bridge from the castle. Booking in advance is advisable to avoid disappointment.

We had a very large group and they were incredibly accommodating. The food was terrific, and the service lovely.

The Food was delicious, the atmosphere was great and we loved the open fire burning even in July that took the chill out of the air, and the restaurant was very clean. The staff were also very accommodating. If you are staying in the castle, the cottage is a short 5 minute walk on the other side of the bridge and you can also charge your bill to your room which is very convenient as well as browse in the gift shop attached to the restaurant that also offers outdoor seating.
