Ardtara Country House

Ardtara’s Restaurant is led by Chef Patron Ian Orr who is renowned for his dedication to fresh seasonal produce and support of local suppliers, visitors who are keen to experience the best the area has to offer will not be disappointed.

Tipped as one of Ireland’s top talents, Ian Orr trained under the late Robbie Millar at Northern Ireland’s formative Michelin starred restaurant Shanks before moving to London’s River Cafe and then as head chef at Rathmullan House Hotel in Donegal. Ian has selected and trained his team to maintain his high standards.

The dining room is traditional with an air of formality in keeping with the style of the house however the service is warm, friendly and attentive. Why not stay overnight and enjoy another wonderful meal at breakfast the next morning?
