Walk through the Walled Garden
The Ardilaun kitchen garden was launched earlier in the Summer where the hotel teamed up with students from fourth class of Scoil Rois, Taylors Hill. A new kitchen garden has been planted up featuring globe artichokes, radishes, courgettes, rocket and various types of lettuce including a large array of herbs and uit like strawberries, raspberries, pears and rhubarb which are only some of the vegetables and fruit planted which play a role in the bistro menu at The Ardilaun Bistro.
The extensive menu features new suppliers such as Corleggy Cheese Belturbet Cavan, Sliabh Aughty Honey Loughrea, Nori Bake Connemara Food Ventures, Galway Goat Farm Dunmore, Beechlawn Organic Farm Ballinasloe and Achill Oysters and Cuinneog Dairy Mayo to complement an already extensive list of artisan food producers we have. The exciting new dishes which are deemed a ‘must try’ include Aran Baby Lemon Sole and Prawns – “on the bone” with sautéed samphire, spinach and prawns and a smoked cuinneog butter with capers and dill; Castlemine Farm Rare Breed Saddleback Port T-Bone Steak with butternut squash and thyme cream, cherry vine tomato confit, smoked black pudding crumbs, mustard seed and elderflower jus; plus many more enticing dishes.
We have gone back to locality and created menus that are inspired by the local producers who have some amazing products which we complement by creating dishes that showcase their products and the hard work they put in to produce them.
