Providing a genuine taste of the best that contemporary Irish cuisine has to offer, The Oak Room restaurant invites guests to explore the culinary treasures of Ireland.
The presentation of each dish adds another layer of regional character to every meal. The culinary team has collaborated closely with local artists working in wood and ceramic to create bespoke serving pieces, including some sourced from Adare Manor’s own woodlands and some inspired by the River Maigue which flows through the estate.
Award-winning Head Chef Michael Tweedie has devised spectacular tasting menus for The Oak Room, drawn from the rich gifts of the Irish landscape. Every care has been taken to source the highest-quality ingredients from Irish artisan producers, including many local suppliers. Exquisite seafood, sustainably farmed meats and game, the bright flavours of freshly-picked vegetables and some special touches foraged from the grounds of Adare Manor itself will take guests on a journey through the distinctive terroirs of Ireland. The result is a collection of simple but innovative and refined dishes which allow the true personality of these exceptional foods to shine through. An extensive and adventurous wine-list, curated by expert Head Sommelier Jurica Gojevic, offers thoughtful pairings to perfectly complement each dish.
The Oak Room was the original family dining room, host to countless intimate family meals and glittering dinner parties throughout its long history. The distinguished oak-panelled room has been lovingly restored and extended to encompass a glorious stone colonnade. The colonnade, once an open terrace leading to the gardens, is now fully enclosed in glass, allowing beautiful views of the formal parterre. When the sun has set, it is a magical setting for dinner by the soft glow of candlelight.
