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, from March through to October, 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.
Our one-hour private Hawk Walks give you the incredible opportunity to fly your very own Harris Hawks under the guidance of your instructor. After you have been introduced to your hawks you’ll set off into the magnificent woodlands to fly your hawks, as they follow you from tree to tree through the woods before swooping down to land on your gloved fist. Your instructor will explain the hawks’ exceptional eyesight, their speed and agility, and how they were trained by the Falconry School themselves.
The minimum age to participate in a Hawk Walk is 7 years old.
For those with a keen interest, the Extended Hawk Walk allows you to go for a longer walk in the woods, giving more flying time and a greater insight into the fascinating hawks’ world.
