Irish Family Kitchen with Aga

Glin Castle also has a second family kitchen on the grounds. This kitchen is filled with Irish country furniture and an Aga, offering a wonderful intimate atmosphere for our guests. Dining at Glin Castle and our kitchens are currently available for guests attending private lettings, events and weddings.

Our food philosophy at Glin Castle is simple; tasty, seasonal and fresh local produce. In our 19th century walled garden, espaliered fruit trees border the asparagus and artichoke beds. Any produce not grown on our grounds, is sourced from the best local producers including fish from Sealyons in Carrigaholt, a small fishing village in County Clare. Our meat is sourced from the best local butchers and our award-winning farmhouse cheese is made by outstanding small local producer Jim O’Brien.
