The Old Convent

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

We have followed Dermot Gannon’s career right from the start, from his days as a teenage chef in Clifden, Connemara. For several years, he worked away from Ireland, trying to find what he was looking for. But when he and his wife, Christine, opened The Old Convent in Clogheen, it was immediately clear that Mr Gannon had found what he was looking for: the pilgrimage was over, the pilgrim was home. Today, guests make their own pilgrimage through the tastes of Tipperary, via Mr Gannon’s 8-course tasting menus, sampling the foods of Traas Farm; Comfrey Cottage; Crowe Brothers; Good Herdsman; Cashel Blue Cheese; Cooleeney Farm. The cooking is dazzling, and offers excellent value for money. The stylish rooms also make for a great stay-over, and breakfast is as original and creative as dinner.
