Restaurant at Barnabrow

Warm hues don the walls of the medieval-style banqueting hall at Barnabrow, East Cork. The turf fires glow in the cosy bar, gothic windows complete the old-world ambiance and great food tantalises the palate.

We use the very best seasonal produce, much of which is the bounty of our Victorian walled garden. Chef, Stuart Bowes has built up a range of artisan suppliers from Ballyhoura and Rosscarbery to Kilmore Quay and Youghal.
