Exquisite Irish Cusine

Originally the kitchen in bygone days, it has been restored with warmth and character. It was part of the original house which is still the central core of the entire complex and dates back to 1740. Visitors will note that one of the stones on the entrance and exit to the Oak Cellar Bistro, bears the inscription 1767. This stone was taken from another wall in the basement of the old house and was reinstalled to its present position today.

Oak Cellar Bistro

Originally the kitchen in bygone days, it has been restored with warmth and character. It was part of the original house which is still the central core of the entire complex and dates back to 1740. Visitors will note that one of the stones on the entrance and exit to the Oak Cellar Bistro, bears the inscription 1767. This stone was taken from another wall in the basement of the old house and was reinstalled to its present position today.

The ambience of the Oak Cellar Bistro is an ideal spot for unwinding and relaxing after a long day of activities, whether it’s small bites, sharing boards or an intimate meal for two, the Oak Cellar Bistro has a dining option to suit all palates.

The cosy and rustic interiors exude warmth from the features. The adjacent lounge adds charm with restored herringbone parquet floors, darkened mahogany panelling, softened with tartan upholstered chairs, and aged leather sofas. An ideal hideaway, situated close to the original parlour of the house.

Using traditional recipes and all-time favourite dishes, the Oak Cellar Bistro is very popular with locals and visitors alike for casual and rustic dining. Dine al-fresco in the summer months on the Abbey Terrace positioned beautifully beneath the Stone-Cut 18th Century Abbey.

Contemporary Irish Cuisine created using the freshest ingredients is served by attentive staff, ensuring an unforgettable experience.
