at Ballymaloe Grainstore

Delicious locally sourced and seasonal food is at the very heart of the Ballymaloe experience.  Our chefs create menus daily depending on what comes in from our walled garden, the fishing boats in nearby Ballycotton, and other local suppliers.

Ballymaloe Grainstore can accommodate all your catering needs, whether for a morning break with freshly baked scones; a buffet lunch; an evening reception with canapés; an informal pig roast; or a multi-course sit down dinner.
