Happy on The Hill. Badass Brunch at O’Mahony’s

Happy on The Hill. Badass Brunch at O’Mahony’s

Planet Dessert

Brunch in O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill is that bit different. Certainly you may have your eggs and bacon and maple syrup and they do a French Toast. But the dishes here, based on local and seasonal, have their own outstanding character as we soon found out.

I suppose what really stands out when you scan the menu is the amount of local producers that are mentioned. That French toast is on Arbutus Bread and the bacon is from Fitzgerald's. 

Then, there’s Ardsallagh goats cheese, Adam’s eggs, Skeaghanore duck, Knockalara cheese, Glenbrook Farm pork, Goatsbridge trout caviar and also the marvellous Yum Gelato. On the drinks side (including cocktails) you’ll find Blackwater Distillery, Valentia Island Vermouth, Stonewell, 9 White Deer, Killahora and Blacks of Kinsale among others.

Rosti with duck, bacon and eggs

Our small group were soon sorted and the order went in. I was tempted by one of the specials: Rossmore Oysters, Spinach and Shallot and Vermouth Sauce but in the end went for the House Potato Rosti, Poached Adams Eggs hollandaise, Skeaghanore confit duck leg, and Fitzgerald’s streaky bacon. 

Quite a precarious stack but a lovely meal, everything cooked to perfection, full of gorgeous flavours and with a lovely crunchy texture in the rosti and bacon, soft in the eggs and the shredded duck was the usual high quality you expect from its West Cork producers. Another of our party also enjoyed this one.

Turbot and scallop special

CL meantime (who had her eye on the rosti initially), settled for the the other special: Turbot, scallops on toast with Langoustine sauce. “Settled for” is probably the wrong phrase as this drew envious glances as it was served and lived up to its promise. Another top notch dish from O’Mahony’s kitchen. Our fourth member enjoyed his Fitzgerald’s striploin steak, Adam eggs, chips and hollandaise, so a very happy quartet indeed.

And the finish was also superb, harmonious even as all four of us picked the Spiced crème brûlée tart, strawberry and cream Yum Gelato. That particular Gelato is perhaps my favourite of the extensive flavours from Yum Gelato and that tart was indeed well spiced (I think there was a decent drop of rum in there). Full marks too by the way for the coffees.

Steak, eggs, chips

They do evening meals there on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings from 5.30 and I got a copy of that menu. Much more extensive than lunch or brunch and every bit as tempting. 

Victor, who does front of house with Máire, told us that Chef Phelan is very strong on Italian and his Knockalara agnolotti, with Raw Lough Honey and Hazelnuts, has been known to stop the conversation when delivered to the table. So there’s a tip for you!

Lunch is served between noon and 3.00pm Thursday to Saturday. The brunch window on Sunday is 10.30 to 2.30. Bookings at 086 8316879 or

Small Plates and Big Smiles in O’Mahony’s Watergrasshill

 Small Plates and Big Smiles in O’Mahony’s Watergrasshill

You’ll get well fed at O’Mahony’s Watergrasshill. This welcoming country bar, serves appetising small plates of the best of local, seasonal and artisan food. It is well situated, on the borders of the recently expanded city, East Cork and North Cork, just ten minutes from the tunnel and literally minutes off the M8.

And you’ll get a warm welcome from Máire, Victor and their friendly staff, and those small plates are executed by newly installed chef Barry Phelan. O’Mahonys send their best wishes to previous chef John Deasy who is opening his own restaurant in Clonmel.

And the tall tales? Well, there’s been a series of them, called The Gab. It happens here monthly and February’s featured Rude Jude and she was billed as “naughty or nice, she's nearly always mischievous”.

They also have a “Corpse Reviver” here. No kidding. You can avail of that on Sunday (10.30am-3.00pm) if you call in for the very popular Brunch. It is one of their cocktails and features Blackwater Gin, Cointreau, Lillet Blanc, Lemon and Absinthe Rinse. Worth a try, I’d say.

February was quite a month as O’Mahony's and other hospitality venues continued the road back to normal. And then something happened that wasn’t normal! Two government ministers called for lunch. Another tall tale? No. The two were Leo and Paschal and O’Mahony’s have the photo to prove it!

And it was still February when the two of us called for lunch. No shiny suits but we did, of course, get that warm welcome and were soon sitting checking the menu. In the evenings, you get the full Small Plates menu and, at lunch you get a smaller selection. By the way, the menu changes from week to week and features mostly local and seasonal.

My eyes immediately went to the loin of Venison (€16), with parsnip, red cabbage and elderberry jus. What an amazing dish! The venison was tender and delicious, lifted to another level by its pairing with the red cabbage, while the smooth parsnip purée and the elderberry all did their bit to excite and satisfy the appetite.

The other dish, the lamb hot pot, was just the job for a cold February day. The lamb came from their butchers, Fitzgerald’s, and the pot also contained a large helping of root vegetables and was topped with sliced potato. 

They also had sides on offer. Hot cut chips with a roast garlic aioli, and roast Greenfield Farm root vegetables. But we let those go as we had our eyes on the desserts.

And we did finish with a couple of winners. Mine was a 70% Chocolate Tart with sea salt and ice cream. Soft and seductive and warm, it was one of the best of its kind and goes straight on to my dessert shortlist for 2022! CL choose a late addition of newly-picked poached rhubarb and ice cream, another lovely easy to dispatch dessert.

After that venison and that chocolate, I gave thanks. Someone up there loves me!

Once you read the menu, you notice that local producers are highly regarded and well supported here: oysters from Rossmore in East Cork, scallops and fish from Ballycotton, vegetables from Greenfield Farm in nearby Knockraha, and meat from Fiztgeralds of Fermoy. Same goes for the drinks with notably Blackwater Gin nominated as their sipping gin.

This is a fourth generation pub with Máire O’Mahony proudly carrying on the hospitality tradition of those that went before. They are very much involved and proud of their place. And if you want to pass the time, either before or after a meal here, then check out the “Nearby” page on their website.  Choices include a walk in the woods, a visit to the village art centre and its theatre or to an open farm.

Killavullen Farmers Market returns for 2022 on Saturday 12th February

Killavullen Farmers Market returns for 2022 on Saturday 12th

After a brief hiatus since the last market in December, the stall holders and customers alike are eager to get back. One of the oldest farmers markets in Ireland, now into its 20th year, they will have their regular Saturday market on 10:30a.m. until 1p.m. in the grounds of the Nano Nagle Centre, on the main road between Castletownroche and Mallow. The market is continually evolving and continues to surprise each visit!

All regular stallholders return to the market for 2022 so you will be able to purchase a range of products from locally grown seasonal vegetables, handcrafted baked goods, Arbutus breads, jams, chutneys and cordials. There is a fine selection of meat, smoked salmon, yoghurts. 

Killavullen farmers market is a great spot to pick up crafted goods including knitwear, kids toys and wood products. The second hand bookstore is a must for any reader. All books cost €1 and donations of books are also gladly accepted. 

Where we were this week

We are so lucky to be surrounded by great producers and suppliers at Killavullen Market and we thought it would be nice to share some good news about others great businesses. A recent visit to O Mahonys in Watergrasshill for Sunday brunch was a real treat! Great coffee and freshly prepared, exceedingly delicious dishes were in abundance. Dishes featured runny poached eggs, tangy hollandaise sauce, crispy bacon and sweet sticky french toast. Expertly executed whilst feeling like you were at home the whole time! Bravo Victor and Marie.

Taqueria Takeout from O'Mahony's Watergrasshill

Taqueria Takeout from O'Mahony's Watergrasshill

Takeouts or At Homes or Click & Collects have kept quite a few restaurants in close contact with their customers during the lockdowns. Máire and Victor at O'Mahony's of Watergrasshill have been very successful. They started with a Dim Sung offering and that sold out each of its three weekends. 

Last Saturday we indulged in their latest, El Monte (a Mexican style offering), all based on local produce and produced with advice from Lily Ramirez, Ireland's favourite Mexican cook. 

What's next for this innovative duo? Could it be Basque? Catalan? Check out their Facebook page from Tuesday onwards. But don't dally! They get booked up pretty quickly. Cost is €25.00 a head.

If you don't fancy a more or less three course meal, then have a look at their Farm Shop on the premises. If you like to get even close to their local producers, then Neighbourfood is the ideal channel and O'Mahony's run a weekly depot where you can collect your order. Looking for presents for the Christmas? They may well have a hamper for you. 

A busy spot! But relax with a takeout coffee and pastry. They serve the excellent Golden Bean coffee, tasty Bread and Roses based sandwiches, seasonal soups and baked goods and more.  The Farm Shop and Café is open 9-5 Tue-Fri; 11-5 Sat.

The taquitos
Crispy Croppy Boy Cauliflower, tomato & lime salsa
Pulled East Ferry free range chicken, burnt lime aioli
Ballycotton White Fish, pickled fennel & garlic aioli.
And on the side: tons of Arroz Rojo (rice)
Totopos, Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, Hot Sauce,
Not So Hot Sauce and Sour Cream.
And we also had some very tasty Totopos (crunchy tortilla chips)

We started with some Knockalara Jalapeno Poppers and this Mole Pinto stew with Gubbeen chorizo..
This super-tasty dish, also with tomato and Pinto beans, was rich, satisfying and warming!
For me, the star of the show!

The Sweet just had to be churros and O'Mahony's version came with a
chilli chocolate sauce. Time to relax after all that!

O'Mahony's Launch New Farm Shop For Watergrasshill

O'Mahony's Launch New Farm Shop For Watergrasshill

  • O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill Launch New Deli & Takeaway Offering 
  • Local Produce, Fresh Baked Goods and Coffee Available
  • New Heat@Home Range of Dinners to Enjoy at Home 

Award-winning gastropub O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill (Cork) is set to add a new addition to their offering; O’Mahony’s Stores, a new farm shop and deli, will open on 12 August. 

In light of the impact of the changing landscape for hospitality caused by the global pandemic, the bar and restaurant will reopen later in the Autumn. The team behind the award-winning food destination have been busy these last few months working on the exciting new venture in response to customer demand.

Proprietor Victor Murphy said “Throughout lockdown we ran weekly Neighbourfood markets and were constantly asked when we could make this a more regular thing. We are very excited with the launch of O’Mahony’s Stores as it enables us to sell amazing produce to our customers that we would only use ourselves in the restaurant. We will also have a new range of freshly made food in our deli section as well as hot drinks and treats. Our new store will remain open when the restaurant and bar reopens later in the Autumn.”

The new delicatessen items will include dishes from the kitchen that can be taken away and a new ‘Heat@Home’ range.

Fresh-baked pastries alongside Golden Bean Coffee will be available from the counter; a sit-down cafe-style option to enjoy hot drinks and baked goods will also be available both inside and outside and all in line with new socially distanced guidelines. 

O’Mahony’s Stores will also sell a delicious selection of freshly baked sourdough breads and quality locally grown vegetables, fresh bread from Bread and Roses, Gloun Cross Dairy milk and dairy products and delicious apple juice from Future Orchard.

There will be a selection of Irish cheeses, free-range eggs from Adams eggs, Greenfield yoghurts, cured meats, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, olive oil, vinegars & sundries from ‘Olives West Cork’. For the sweet-toothed they will stock the most incredible chocolate goodies from David Chocolatier. They will also stock natural beauty products from the Sun Vale Soap Company and Little Red Skincare.

O’Mahony’s Farm Shop will officially open August 12, from Wednesday to Friday 8am-7pm, and Saturday & Sunday 12-6pm.

That was the year that was! Rewind 2019

That was the year that was!
Rewind 2019

When you go over the hill, you go faster. And certainly this year, 2019, went faster!

Cask "toasting". Wine, Whiskey and Beer evening  at the Franciscan Well

It was a good one though, some terrific visits to producers of all kinds, delicious meals, excellent stays at everything from B&Bs to five star hotels and friendly festivals as well.

And great to be able to confirm that friendliness is still a huge and engaging factor in the Irish hospitality sector. There were warm welcomes, above and beyond, in many places and our front of house laurels go to:
and to the entire team at Wicklow Heather in Laragh
With Mary T (right) at Castle Grove

On the Gastro Pub scene, you’ll find it hard to beat the Victor led front of house at O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill. And in accommodation, the nod goes to Mary T and the Sweeney family at Castle Grove House in Donegal. Always a terrific welcome too at both the Trident in Kinsale and the Celtic Ross in Rosscarbery. Top guesthouses: Perryville (Kinsale) and Sheedy’s (Doolin).

Breakfast is a key part of accommodation of course and we came across some gems this year. Aldridge Lodge  in Wexford is absolutely outstanding while Sheedy’s of Doolin is another excellent place. I don't do breakfasts in restaurants often but ORSO in Cork gets an honourable mention! The most impressive breakfast room we came across is the beautiful conservatory in the Quay House  in Clifden and the breakfast is good too as it is in Kinsale’s Perryville.
Fish breakfast at Aldridge Lodge

O’Mahony’s of Watergrasshill is an outstanding venue for pub grub while Gallagher’s in MacCurtain Street Cork impressed on a pre-theatre visit.

The fish offering is also improving all the time and we came across two quite innovative places this year: Fisk in Downings in Donegal and Goldie in Cork City. Kudos too to the Wild Strands Café (Malin, Donegal) for their use of seaweed and fish. Superb fish dinner as always in the Bayview Ballycotton, the village is also well served in that regard by Pier 26, and there was an excellent fish lunch at the Mountain House in Ardfield, West Cork. In Cork City and in a few Kerry towns, you'll find, as we did, the ever-reliable Quinlan's.

Great variety in the restaurant scene nowadays, including the famed vegetarian (and wine!) offering at Cafe Paradiso, also on Leeside. Crab claws were superb at Pier 26 (Ballycotton) and Naughton's (Kilkee) while the best steak was served at Liberty Grill (Cork). Hard to beat Nash 19 Cork for pork and the Market Lane group for lamb (especially when the Blasket Lamb is available). When it comes to variety on the menu, Cork’s Dockland is the place to be.
Liberty Grill steak

Enjoyed the Palestinian fare at Izz in Cork though the ethnic highlight was the Pickle Pop-up with Sunil Ghai  in Sage Midleton. Another good one was Richy's Curry Series with his excellent Indian chef Meeran Gani.
Pearse Lyons Distillery

Lunch is an important time if you're on the road. The Woollen Mills Café in Foxford , St Francis Provisions (Kinsale), TIA in Louisburgh are all worth noting - great salads and more. In Cork city, put the Farmgate (celebrating 25 years) and Crawford Gallery Cafe on your list, not forgetting Vikki's in Sunday's Well, O'Callaghan's (Mitchelstown) and Seasalt in Cobh. Something more substantial? Then put Tramore’s Copper Hen in your diary. And go for the lunch tasting menu at Greene’s Cork if you are looking for something really special. Off for an afternoon? Why not the extra special Afternoon Tea in the River Lee Hotel?
Ichigo Ichie. "Every moment we change"

We enjoyed a few special dinners. The Sake dinner at Ichigo Ichie was outstanding. Great company, wine and food at the Rizzardi Wine dinner in Courtmacsherry’s Lifeboat Inn. And fantastic wine and fish at a FEAST event in the Bayview. And another excellent night was the Barnabrow Gourmet Evening with ENO Wines.
Paradiso Cork

Indeed, FEAST was our top festival this year. It has made huge strides in recent years. The Pickle Pop-up here was a good one and another very enjoyable meal was the Picado Mexican Pop-up during the West Waterford Festival. 
Quay House, Clifden

Oh, I nearly forgot dessert. Indeed, I’ve been known to skip it sometimes. But two that I remember with pleasure are the Mocha Choca Yumma at the Ballymaloe Cookery School Garden Café Truck and the Apple and Berry Crumble at the Copper Hen (Tramore).

Dessert at Ballymaloe CS truck
Both Eight Degrees and Kinnegar breweries, two of the best around, took time out to show us their breweries. Another very enjoyable event was the Wine, Whiskey and Beer evening  at the Franciscan Well. Other producers visited included Clonakilty Black Pudding, Seymour Biscuits (Bandon), St Tola Cheese (Clare), Hegarty's Cheese (Whitechurch).

On the wine side, there was a very impressive Spit 2019 day in the River Lee. Best wine bar we visited was the Gallery in Westport. More and more non-alcoholic drinks, good ones, are coming on the market and our favourite this year is the Highbank Orchards Organic Drivers Cider.

A couple of excellent distillery visits too including to Clonakilty and Powerscourt (both new). Perhaps the most memorable was the lovely Pearse Lyons distillery  in Dublin’s Liberties, big thanks there to our guides Bernard and James.

Speaking of guides, we had the lovely Karen Coakley include us on her excellent Kenmare Food Tour, lots of good food and variety in this small Kerry town. Kenmare is excellent but our top town of 2019 for good drink, excellent food and off-the-scale craic is Clonakilty. My highlight in Clon is the annual Street Carnival. In the city, we enjoyed the Long Table Walk in June and the Gourmet Trail (part of the Oyster Fest) in September. And in mid-summer, we thoroughly enjoyed a West Cork Farm Tour where another three top class guides - the O'Donovan family - showed us around..

Can’t go without mentioning pizza. I know there are many good ones around nowadays but my nod goes to newcomer Curley Stu  (check his Facebook here for venues) and the well established Pompeii (regulars at the Franciscan Well and in Waterville for the summer).

Lunch at Greene's
Great to see so many places now putting the emphasis on local and Blarney’s Square Table, champions of local, have been doing exactly that since they started. The Europe has, we think, the best five star hotel lounge/bar while Powerscourt has the best pub. 

For comfort and ticking all the other restaurant boxes as well, it has to be the Cornstore in Cork. Always a good atmosphere here. This year though the best buzz we came across was at Tapas de Lola (Dublin) and The Bullman (Kinsale).

Always get around to the farmers markets and it usually pays off! And it paid off on the double when we called to Killavullen before Christmas as it was here that we found the best ever Mince Pies (Noirin) and the best ever Sausage Rolls (Ciaran).
Bray Head walk

Some Random Bits
Top walks for auld fellas: Knockadoon, Ballycotton Cliff Walk, Nire Valley Gap, Bray Head (Valentia)  and Carrigfadda (West Cork).
Film: Satan and Adam (Netflix)
Books: Beautiful Affair (Mike Hanrahan), Suzy Suzy (William Wall), Rewind (Catherine Ryan Howard), all different but each with a strong East Cork connection.
Museum: Little Museum of Dublin.

So that was 2019, or at least a summary. If you have any suggestions for 2020, you know where to find me!

O’Mahony's Winning Formula. Local and Seasonal. Small Plates. Big Flavours.

O’Mahony's Winning Formula. 
Local and Seasonal. Small Plates. Big Flavours

O’Mahony’s is making waves in Watergrasshill, even though it is in its early years of it reincarnation. The food offering started a couple of years back as local and seasonal, on small plates mostly, and that is still the formula, backed up by a very helpful, very well informed front of house, lots of chats, loads of smiles, a welcome on the mat and all the way through.

And there is also a huge welcome for local producers and suppliers. Their produce is carefully handled here, expertly cooked and delivered on those (not so) small plates!  It is the same with drinks. The craft beer selection includes Franciscan Well and 8 Degrees on draught, Blacks’ ales in bottle, also the Saor GF from 9 White Deer, and ciders by Stonewell and Longueville House. And don’t worry, mainstream beers are also available.
Stonewell zero

Back to the menu though. You may nibble away on marinated olives for a start. If you prefer something a bit bigger why not consider their boards: Antipasto, Cheese, or Charcuterie. We decided to share the Antipasto, a selection of dips (hummus, tapenade, goats cheese, etc, olives) with bread.

We had the car, so what would we drink? A quick answer was provided in the shape of their non-alcoholic board. It included a red wine, a white wine, even a sparkling one. The Seed-lip gin was available as were the apple based drinks (very nice too) from the local Future Orchards. Also some beers: Baltika, Heineken zero and Erdinger and a zero cider by Stonewell. The latter was my pick - it was my first time trying it. Stonewell always hit a high standard and this did the job very well indeed. CL meanwhile choose the Erdinger, probably the best of the three beers on offer. 

The increasing number of local and seasonal supporters will be delighted to see the small plates list - these are basically your main courses without all the sometimes superfluous extras. You’ll note names like Jack McCarthy, Kilbrack Farm, Gubbeen, Ballyhoura Mushrooms, Carrigcleena Duck, Leamlara Honey, Hegarty’s Cheese and Fitzgerald Butchers. By the way, O’Mahony’s is also the area base for NeighbourFood through which you may also get your hands on some of these lovely products.
Smoked lamb

The menu changes regularly. There were seven choices for us and it took us a while to make up our minds. I think we could have employed the Grand National formula: close the eyes and stick a pin in the list. But we did pick a couple and shared. That is one thing about these “small plates”; they are ideal for groups who order a bunch of them and then share.

I was tempted by the Rockpool: Kilbrack blue potato, gnocchi, foraged sea herbs and poached white soul, and that seemed to be a favourite of Victor (who owns and runs the pub along with Máire). In the end though, I went for the Carrigcleena duck pastilles, Leamlara Honeycomb, coriander yogurt. The duck came in three parcels, packed with flavoursome meat and that was enhanced by the yoghurt and a small square of the honeycomb.

CL also hit the jackpot with the Hot Smoked Fitzgerald’s lamb, braised red cabbage parsnip purée and game chips. The tender meat is served pink and is the main player in a hearty ensemble, every item in the mix playing a part. And we both thoroughly enjoyed the side of excellent hand-cut chips with a punchy pepper sauce.

Now we were looking at the short list of desserts. I was seriously considering the Treacle Tart with Yum Gelato vanilla before taking Victor’s tip - he freely admits to being biased! - which was the Cardamon, Lemon Curd Pannacotta, ginger Manuka honey, jelly and tuile.  Went down every well indeed.

By the way, as I didn’t mention it earlier, they have a House drinks list here, all from neighbours. House Gin is Bertha’s Revenge (from Castlelyons) with Poachers Tonic and orange. The local juice, from Glanmire, is supplied by Future Orchards while the local cider comes from Mallow’s Longueville House. And 8 Degrees, up the road in Mitchelstown, are the producers of the House beer.

All the regular wines are available by the glass and you also have a rosé and Prosecco. On the night, the list was supplemented by a specials board that had no less than seven new wines which will soon have a place on the list. So, no shortage. And no shortage either of spirits where again, particularly in gins and whiskeys, they are strong on supporting Irish.

O'Mahony's of Watergrasshill is a family-run country pub and food venue just off the Cork-Dublin motorway (M8);  is only 10 minutes from the Dunkettle Interchange, near Cork City. The pub has been Máire's family for 200 years. Experienced Chef Jim Coleman recently joined the team.
