2 AA Rosette Restaurant


Private dining

Our restaurant – in the drawing room or ground floor dining room – has views of the gardens and Mourne Mountains. We use herbs from our herb garden, home grown vegetables and are fortunate enough to have an abundance of superb shellfish from the lough ~ oysters, mussels, cockles, winkles and lobster for example.

We are very fortunate to have 2 dining rooms – both of which can offer ‘socially distanced’ tables, high ceilings & large windows. The restaurant is open from 6pm (closed Mondays & most Tuesdays) is nearly full each night with our residents – we can accommodate 1 or 2 extra pre-booked table, indoors, for non-residents in the restaurant.

The restaurant will close for 5 days – Sunday 28th November to Thursday 2nd December inclusive – to give our Head Chef time to have a little holiday! Bedrooms & breakfast will still be operating! There are other places to eat within 2 minutes walk.

The mountain is home to the tastiest lamb in the country ~ Cooley lamb ~ and the outlying areas are the final resting place for the famous ancient epic ‘The Brown Bull of Cooley’. Our butcher has his own beef reared on the slopes of the mountain. Our beef is, therefore, one hundred percent Cooley or if sourced further afield – such as the Mourne Mountain lamb & beef – is just across Carlingford Lough.

Our main restaurant menu has (or can be adjusted to be) a vegan starter, main course & dessert option.
Coeliac? Dairy Free? Any other special dietary requirement?
