Ballymaloe House was founded on sustainable food principles, long before farm-to-fork or food miles were considered fashionable. When Myrtle Allen started her restaurant, the ingredients used to cook were from her husband farm.

Today, we are still renowned for our farm-to-fork culinary practices, and continue to serve simple, wholesome food using a combination of seasonal produce grown in our walled garden, reared on the farm, and from a variety of local producers and suppliers.
