The Kitchen in the Castle


Cookery School

Denotes genuine Irish food culture, ie special Irish food products/companies/producers, and highlights the best places to shop for regional and artisan foods; the selection excludes obvious 'non-Irish' elements regardless of quality, eg ethnic restaurants and specialists in coffee, wine and other drinks, unless relevant to local production or history. Eat & Stay establishments are chosen for their commitment to showcasing local produce and Irish hospitality.

An atmospheric cookery school in restored Georgian kitchens

The Kitchen in the Castle

Run by  an experienced team - founder Edwina St Lawrence, with Head Tutor Hazel McFadden and tutor, Liberty Finnegan - this unusual cookery school is based in the beautifully restored Georgian kitchens in historic Howth Castle. 

In this inspiring setting, it  offers a full range of evening and day courses covering everything from Quick Stir Fry to Glitzy Cup Cakes ands Parisian Macaroons, or Quick and Simple Fish. A number of courses offer ideas for entertaining - An Italian, French or Spanish Dinner Party, perhaps - then there's bread making and baking, everyday meals - including cooking for babies and toddlers - and A Roast Sunday Lunch. They also offer themed courses for groups or corporate events.

Whatever the theme, the aim is the same: " reconnect you with food. We want to nurture your creativity, give you a good grounding in the basics and the confidence to cook delicious food, at any time."
