Cullen's at the Cottage

The perfect seasonal setting

This traditional thatched cottage, which used to be Cong Cinema, (showing films on Tuesday's and Thursday's, and was the first place to show The Quiet Man even before it was shown in Hollywood), today provides a relaxed dining experience with a casual dress code in which to enjoy international and local dishes inspired by our owner Beatrice Tollman, including our delicious signature dish 'Chicken Peri Peri'. It is slow cooked in our rotisserie oven in the main dining area, so mouth-watering aromas greet you as soon as you enter the restaurant. 

At the front of the building you will now discover a beautifully manicured garden and extended patio area proving a spectacular area to enjoy lunch and sip a cocktail and enjoy the magnificent views of Ashford Castle in the distance. 

Open seasonally, it’s just a short stroll over the bridge from the castle. Booking in advance is advisable to avoid disappointment.

"I believe the dining experience begins before the guest even arrives - it has to provoke a sense of anticipation and showcase our exceptional local produce in its finest form."
