Rathkeale Food & Drink

When they settled in Rathkeale, the Palatines brought with them many innovative practices and tools to farming and food production. Every home had a kitchen garden and an orchard full of fruit and vegetables.

Food and Drink

Rathkeale has retained that strong tradition of good food and hospitality. 

The Rathkeale House Hotel, nestled within a quiet old orchard, is a purpose-built, family run hotel that oozes the charm and character of an old world hotel.

Rathkeale has a number of cosy pubs to choose from for an evening's entertainment or why not try freshly made bread and cakes from Deel Bakery, which has been in business for nearly thirty years.

A warm and friendly welcome awaits everyone in O’Dea’s Bar and Bistro. Well known throughout the region for its famous daily carvery, O'Dea's takes great pride in ensuring only the finest ingredients are served on a daily basis. 

Foleys @ the Irish Pike Pub and Restaurant owner and head chef Darragh Ronan knows that creating good food requires good ingredients produced locally and prepared with respect and care, thus creating meals that linger long in the memory.
