Farmgate Cafe

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Rebecca Harte’s culinary curation in Cork’s venerable Farmgate Café acts as a prism, dispersing new light on how you see a dish of stout rarebit, or tripe and onions with drisheen, or cottage pie, or cod with kale. Ever since Rebecca’s mother, Kay, first opened the Café, up the stairs above Cork’s English Market, people have suggested that Farmgate food is some sort of historical re-enactment, but this is wrong. The fact is that Farmgate food is ageless, and Rebecca has simply shone a sharp new light on the glory that is steamed Lady’s Bridge potatoes, and the purity of a crunchy white soda bread, and the elemental loveliness of Oysterhaven oysters. Great staff, great value.
