About
Meet your hosts Richenda and Michael at their gorgeous home built in the 18th century. Sit down around a cozy fire and enjoy a cup of tea and scones as you hear about the delightful history of their home which has been in the family for generations. Weather permitting, Richenda and Michael will take you on a quick tour of the family’s vegetable garden and apple orchard where you might pick a few herbs for your meal. Back at the dining table, enjoy Richenda’s creations - either a three-course meal or a creative Irish tasting menu. Possible dishes are spring pea and mint or beetroot and coconut soup, a main course, such as a beef and Guinness stew with a side of glazed parsnips and parsnips or stuffed chicken with mushrooms and spiced vegetables, all served with traditional Irish bread. Your meal will conclude with a dessert of a seasonal Irish tart (made from rhubarb or apples from the garden), a rich chocolate rum torte or a homemade lemon curd meringue roulade.

What to expect
  • Meet your hosts Richenda and Michael at their gorgeous home built in the 18th century. Sit down in their living room around a cozy fire and enjoy a cup of tea and scones as you chat with your hosts and hear about the delightful history of their home, which has been in the family for generations. See if you can find the date of her mother and great aunt's wedding day, etched secretly into one of the windows! Weather permitting, Richenda and Michael will take you on a quick tour of the family’s vegetable garden and apple orchard. Return to the dining table (either their lovely kitchen farm table or their more formal dining room, depending on the mood) to enjoy Richenda’s creations - either a seasonal three-course meal or a creative Irish tasting menu.
