Dine at Ballymaloe

Our restaurant serves locally sourced and home grown food from our walled garden, farm and local suppliers. Our chefs draw up the lunch and dinner menu every day depending on what comes in from the garden and the boats at Ballycotton. Seasonal fruit and vegetables are delivered each morning from the gardens. Herbs, edible flowers, soft fruits and apples come from our walled garden as well as onions, potatoes, kale, cabbage and salad leaves and many other vegetables.

About Our Food

From Farm to Fork

The Ballymaloe menu is based on the food from our own farms or producers in the locality. Local farmers supply us with poultry, ducks, geese, guinea fowl, chickens and turkeys.

We keep our own free-range hens for a guaranteed fresh supply of eggs and also have recently taken to rearing our own free-range pigs on the farm. All our lamb and beef is grass-fed, reared on neighbouring farms and slaughtered by local family butchers.

Our pork and poultry is locally produced, non-intensive, free range or organic.
