Dine at Ballymaloe

Dining at Ballymaloe House Hotel is for those who appreciate sustainable, seasonal menus in a unique country house setting.  

A renowned dining destination, our menus use farm-to-fork principles, showcasing what's grown in our walled garden, the farm or sourced from local suppliers. We serve simple Irish cuisine, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

This means our menus change often, creating a truly unforgettable culinary experience, concluding with a delightful Dessert Trolley.



Ballymaloe House Hotel was built on sustainable food principles long before farm-to-table or food miles were considered fashionable. Myrtle Allen started her restaurant with a philosophy of farm-to-table principles, using farm produce, and choosing the finest, freshest ingredients resulting in consistent culinary excellence, and these are still the core values at Ballymaloe House Hotel today. 

We continue to serve simple, wholesome food using a combination of seasonal produce grown in our walled garden, reared on the farm, and local producers and suppliers.
