Rory O'Connell Cookery School

Chef and teacher Rory O'Connell is a master in the art of stylish, stunningly simple food and has quietly earned a place as one of Ireland's most highly regarded chefs.


A brother of Ballymaloe Cookery School's Darina Allen, he also trained at Ballymaloe House with Myrtle Allen, the doyenne of Irish country house cooking, and shares the philosophy of using only the freshest and most carefully sourced ingredients and allowing them to speak for themselves. 


Although publicly low-key, he has enjoyed a quietly glittering career, including a 10-year spell as head chef at Ballymaloe House, and also many top level jobs and assigments, including acting as a food ambassador for Ireland  in various capacities.


His courses at  Ballymaloe Cookery School are much in demand and he offers a wide range of bespoke cookery classes, catering for all levels and both groups and individuals, at his 18th century farmhouse near Shanagarry.
