Gougane Barra Hotel Food & Wine

Food & Wine

Good food and wine are a big part of what our guests enjoy at Gougane Barra Hotel.


Katy and her dedicated kitchen team take responsibility for making and baking the food. 

Our cookbook 'Cooking with Katy' is available here

In this unspoilt, natural Gaeltacht area, we’re lucky to be able to source most of our food from a large number of small, local producers. 

Since 2014, we have our own organic herb garden where we also grow rhubarb, salad leaves and fruit bushes to supply the hotel.

In 2020 Neil and Bertie assembled our first poly tunnel. 

“The way the team run this magical hotel feels good, and that is why we all love it. They make their pear and almond scones - and their poached eggs on Lynch's toast (in business in Macroom for 150 years) and their Aga-roasted Chicken with Gubbeen Bacon and rosemary gravy, and their baked crumble with homemade custard - not just because their customers love them, but because it is a happy and creative act, and a rewarding and generous testament of true hospitality.”

John McKenna and Sally McKenna, The Mc Kennas’ Guide 2020

Almost all of our ingredients are local and our menus change with the seasons to reflect the produce that’s available.
