You may have noticed we haven't posted much lately! We celebrated the marriage of Andrew, our head chef, and Jessica, our wedding manager, this weekend and had the absolute best of times!
Thank you to all of the hard work and support from friends, family, and staff to make everything possible. It was the best day.

Outdoor ceremony even if it rains? You bet! Our woodland ceremony space has the stretch tent up so you can get married outside even if the Irish weather doesn't co-operate!

That was some weekend! Many congratulations again to Antoinette and Phil. Canapés and Pimms in the main house, tea and cookies from Bessie, sharing platters of poached prawns and smoked salmon, and beetroot and goats cheese salad, followed by lamb and pig from the spit. The night ended with dancing on the tables and wild stories!
We were inspired to make a special gin and tonic cocktail using Bertha's Revenge Gin made from our friends at Ballyvolane House, Martinstown House elderflower cordial, Fever-Tree Indian tonic, and a splash of beet root juice for an earthy undertone. Garnish with a few beetroot slices and add a Tufty-cat.
Have a great weekend everyone!
Wonderful dinner party last night!
Soft, creamy Ardsallagh goats cheese, with spiced walnuts, caramelised pears and peppery green leaves to start. Roast carrot soup with coriander pesto was followed by grilled sustainable cod, curried sweet potato purée, red pepper hollandaise and grilled asparagus. All finished with apple and raspberry crumble with cold whipped cream.
Then coffee, chocolate and chats in the drawing room.
