The perfect seasonal setting
This traditional thatched cottage - which used to be Cong Cinema, showing films on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and the first place to show The Quiet Man even before it was shown in Hollywood - today provides a relaxed dining experience. With a casual dress code, enjoy international and local dishes inspired by our owner Beatrice Tollman, including our delicious signature dish 'Chicken Peri Peri'. It is slow-cooked in our rotisserie oven in the main dining area, so mouth-watering aromas greet you as soon as you enter the restaurant.
At the front of the building, you will now discover a beautifully manicured garden and extended patio area, proving a spectacular area to enjoy lunch, sip a cocktail and take in the magnificent views of Ashford Castle in the distance... The perfect place to watch the world go by after a walk through the gardens or a round of golf. Open seasonally, Cullen’s is just a short stroll over the bridge from the castle.
Booking in advance is advisable to avoid disappointment. This restaurant is open to guests and residents staying at the castle but it has limited capacity.
