Granville's: Macroom's Culinary Gem Rises from the Ashes

Granville's: Macroom's Culinary Gem Rises from the Ashes

Menu Locally Sourced, Globally Inspired

In 2007, Paul and Leonie Granville transformed a derelict site into a Macroom jewel, Granville's Bar and Restaurant. A 2021 fire tested their resilience, but the family bounced back stronger than ever. It is a friendly place, service is with

a smile and a chat and is also efficient.

The menu showcases the best of Irish produce. Succulent Irish beef and lamb, Toons Bridge Dairy cheese and fresh seafood from Valentia Island are examples. Award-winning Hereford sirloin steaks and an enticing seafood selection are always crowd-pleasers.

Hazelnut Creme Brûlée 

Chef Brian Granville, the couple's son, adds a delightful twist with dishes like Indian-spiced monkfish with pineapple salsa and Continental-style chicken schnitzel. We savoured these flavour-filled dishes, both served with generous portions of salad and fries. Here you get both quality and quantity!

Don't miss the daily specials, featuring local stars like the Toonsbridge Halloumi and Piri Piri hake. The Celebration of Irish Duck, a medley of pan-seared breast, slow-cooked leg lollipop, and duck spring roll, is a must-try.

Sweet Endings and More:

Homemade desserts like the Hazelnut Creme Brûlée with homemade shortbread are the perfect finalé. The extensive wine list offers popular varietals by the glass, along with sparkling options and creative cocktails. For a casual drink, the bar boasts a wide selection of spirits, beers, and local 9 White Deer brews. I enjoyed a glass of Mitchell’s Green Spot whiskey.

A Town Reborn:

Granville's is a favourite among locals and travellers (who now enjoy a smoother journey thanks to the recently completed bypass). Finding parking is easy, especially on Sundays when we secured a spot right in the square. Weekday parking may require a short walk to nearby lots.
