At Original Irish Hotels, our Hotels work with local producers to bring you only the best freshly-caught and locally grown ingredients. We are proud to offer our guests a choice of the very best of Irish Cuisine. We are delighted to take part in the ‘’Taste the Island’’ initiative by Fáilte Ireland – A Celebration of Irelands Food & Drink.

The Closer you are to the source, the more enjoyable the cuisine. Our Hotels serve the finest and freshest of what's in season, brought to you by people who know the farmer, the fisherman, and the grower.
