When people think of a traditional country house, they are unlikely to envisage relaxed informal dining. In 2014, we decided to break the mould and embark on a project that offered our guests an alternative, more casual dining option. The Tap Room is the culmination of this thinking, with three local businesses – Kinnegar Brewing, Sacarpello & Co and Rathmullan house, working in unison to provide a memorable dining experience. The focus here is on real stone baked pizzas courtesy of Scarpello & Co. from the outdoor wood fired pizza oven, plus a selection of Irish craft beers on tap from Kinnegar Brewery. Scarpello & Co strongly believe in using the best ingredients to complement their fresh homemade dough. The result is a pizza which would not be out of place in the finest Milanese pizzeria. Kinnegar Brewing have established themselves as one of the country’s leading micro-breweries over the past 5 years. With only a 2km journey from the brewery to our Tap Room, you won’t find a fresher pint of Kinnegar anywhere in Ireland. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly service, make this the ideal location to wind down after a walk on the beach in this idyllic location on the shores of the Swilly. Since opening in 2014, the Tap Room has proved a huge success which culminated in being named in John & Sally McKennas Guides, Top 100 restaurants in Ireland for 2015.
