Food and Drink Spotting

The Long Table
Cloughjordan House, in association with Glenisk, The Gathering and Tipperary Food Producers, are holding a Long table dinner on Saturday the 29th June at 7.30 to celebrate authentic Irish food with a chance (for those who wish) to partake in the afternoon in the preparation for the evening long table banquet in the Cookery School of Cloughjordan house on Friday and Saturday.

A night with a difference with a chance to enjoy the fruits of your labours at the Long Table style that allows the chance to meet new people: gents be prepared to be moved 2 seats along after each course.

Listen to the delectable Susannah de Wrixon sing some of the old classics from the 60s and 70s relaxing in the gardens around the famous Cloughjordan House patio heaters: (old wheelbarrows filled with wood fires)
Enjoy the art exhibition in the Ballroom of two renowned local artists Jenny Fox  and Siobhan Leonard.  

Doneraile Farmers' Market
With the newest addition of doll house designs Ireland we are really opening up our market to some wonderful high end crafts which includes Irish Oak and Rope and the fabulous locally grown plants and herbs of Little Acre certainly brighten up the Sunday atmosphere. Add to that a range of IRISH products made in local Kitchens ( yes they are all HSE approved)
Throw in The courtyard tea rooms for that spot of light lunch and producers who are not only proud of their products but are constantly honing their skills and you have a really different Farmers Market set in the truly lovely Doneraile Park with beautiful walks, a play ground and wild life. Can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday. Come join us and see for yourself. Next market June 2nd 11 am - 3pm

Today is the start of a huge week for me. This Thursday is an absolute honour for me to have been asked to do a reading from my book, The Hooker in the Lobby, at The Listowel Writers week and then on Saturday, I'll be sitting on the couch with Brendan O'Connor on The Saturday Night Show. This has all happened because of all the interaction that YOU GUYS have had with us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube over the last few years. I owe you all big time!!!!

To celebrate me being on with Brendan O'Connor this Saturday, I am running a 'Pre Saturday Night Show Special'. Our Early Bird menu offers 2 or 3 courses for €25 & €29, but for this one night only, I am going to include a FREE bottle of House Wine per couple too. You just have to be in and ordered before 6.30pm. If you decide to eat off our A La Carte Dinner Menu, then I will take 10% off your food bill & throw in the wine. It means you can be fed and wined and back home with the feet up to watch Treyvaud in action. If you want to come in as a bigger table, it's still one bottle of House wine free per two people!!! (ie, table of 6 gets 3 free bottles!!!)
This is a limited availability and its first come first served!! Call us on 064 66 33062 and make sure to quote the 'Pre Saturday Night Show Special' when making your booking!!! (if you are not in and ordered before 6.30, it doesn't count. No matter who you are!!!)

We will open early to accommodate supporters and runners. Remember we are right next to the City Hall, so come and say hello when you pick up your registration pack or after the race on Monday.
