    Killruddery hosts a weekly series of ‘homegrown’ dining experiences. Head Chef Rafal Lorys prepares a decadent 3-course menu, showcasing Killruddery’s own seasonal, sun-kissed ingredients from our Walled Garden & Farm. With occasional pop-up guest chefs!

    View our menu for the 18th September here.  Please note there is no Thursday Night Supper on the 17th September.

    On the 24th of September we welcome Rootsdinners

    Roots is a roaming food project established by partners Keith Coleman and Aisling Mc Hugh. After hosting a series of dinners in Fia, a café they co-managed at the time, the seed of what would eventually become Roots had been sown. Inspired by the wealth of produce this island has to offer, and the simple act of gathering people around the table to share a meal, Roots has grown into a unique dining experience. To date, the duo have hosted dinners in an array of interesting space; from The Fumbally Stables, to Hang Tough Gallery, and even in a Lawn Bowls Club. Roots has now found a home in Rossnaree House, in the heart of the Boyne Valley. The couple’s dream is to one day operate a small guesthouse with adjoining dining room and space to grow the food they serve.

    Roots doesn’t start with a menu. 

    It starts with exploration. Seasonal insight. Foraging. Sometimes a dinner idea emerges from a conversation with friends. Sometimes with a local producer or a passionate chef. From this, we uncover stories that we develop into pop-up dinners. For us, Roots is as much about our journey as it is about the dinners we create. It’s a celebration of culture, heritage and native produce. It culminates into an experience that fulfils our everlasting curiosity to understand food, and what it means to share it in beautiful places with wonderful people.

    A Floral Workshop, paired with prosecco & lunch in the Grain Store Cafe.

    We adore flowers, we absolutely love to create floral arrangements and we love to host knowledge sharing and creative workshops.

    Fionnuala Ardee has invited Fionnuala Fallon to show us basic techniques for foam-free vase/urn arrangements, hand-tied bouquets and large-scale installations using seasonal flowers and foliage, utilising simple materials such as chicken wire, jam jars and floral buckets.

    Foraging and picking for the ingredients will take place the evening before and the morning of the demonstration, from our extensive cut flower beds in our Walled Garden, beds that have been specifically laid out for cutting over the past two years under the guidance of Fionnuala Fallon and tended by our cut flower gardener Maria Dragon.

    Fallon is an Irish Times garden writer, flower farmer and floral designer (@theirishflowerfarmer) with special emphasis on sustainability, she will share her knowledge and philosophy of seasonal growing and arrangements in a slide-show featuring her 2020 choice floral designers and useful tips on colour, texture and form that work in combination to create natural, garden-inspired arrangements.

    The workshop is hosted by our own Fionnuala, Lady Ardee and will take place between her flower room at the top of Killruddery Farm Shop and our Shoot Room and eves next door.

    There will be a glass of Prosecco and edible flower treats on arrival and a delicious 2-course lunch in The Grain Store Cafe + all participants will take home their own generous seasonal bouquet!
