Venue Information

A small country with a big reputation, helped along by a breathtaking ancient landscape you’ll find along the Dingle Peninsula, The Ring of Kerry and at the majestic Cliffs of Moher. Thanks to our mild climate, clean seas, fertile soil and yes, the rain too. We have some of the best raw ingredients in the world. And, on this small island you’ll eat seafood straight off the boat. Dairy products from local pastures. Beef, lamb and pork raised within a few miles. Sea vegetables harvested on nearby strands. Wild food foraged from hedgerows. Greens picked that same day. Lately there has been a resurgence in craft beers and whiskeys so lots to taste, but we’re told Guinness and Jameson taste even better here so it might be rude not to give them a try. Ireland is a nation of story-tellers; we are a friendly people, whose lyrical nature is expressed in the warmth of our welcome. A hundred thousand welcomes might seem excessive, but in Ireland, excess is encouraged, so long as it’s practiced in moderation.
