The Rathwood restaurant serves wholesome food that can be enjoyed by all the family, from traditional home cooked meals to dishes with a special Rathwood touch, using the best of local ingredients as much as possible.

All year around, cakes are freshly baked every day at Rathwood. For Christmas, we have added a selection of seasonal delights to our wide variety of delicious cakes and tarts. Our Christmas puddings, mince pies and Christmas cakes will give you a taste of Christmas or, if you prefer, you can stick to the all-time Rathwood favourites, like the chocolate mud or banoffee pie. Most of Rathwood’s sweet treats are also available gluten-free, for celiac diets.

Our restaurant seats over 300 people so you don’t need to worry about bookings and  is open later for the Christmas season so you can have a rest and enjoy a treat or two after your visit to Santa or a day of Christmas shopping.

If you have any special dietary needs please call our Restaurant Manager on +353 59 915 6285 to discuss them.
