Birgitta and Peter Curtin’s Burren Storehouse is one of the most radical food concepts ever created in Ireland.
Some people are radical when they are young. Some people are never radical. And then there are some people who are always radical. Always. Age doesn’t blunt their sharpness, or incline them to conservative thinking. Instead, their creativity burns brightly, all the time. There aren’t too many of these people, but you need only take one look at the Burren Storehouse to realise that it is the work of two radical people: Birgitta and Peter Curtin.
The Curtins have always been pioneers, right from the early days when they rescued the Roadside Tavern, and onwards to the days when they created the Burren Smokehouse, fashioning one of the best tourism experiences in the West. But The Storehouse may well be their masterpiece, a radical, cutting-edge food concept that marries great modern Irish cooking with a performance space in an elegant and informal way that nobody else has ever managed in Ireland. there is nowhere else quite like it, and it ushers in a new era of third-space developments for Irish hospitality.
