Burren Fine Wine and Food is owned by Cathleen Connole since 1999 and welcomes everyone from near and far, whatever their interest is in the region.
Nestled between the enchanted Hills of the Burren is the century old stone coach house that houses Burren Fine Wine & Food situated on the grounds of the former parochial house of Glenaragh Church about two miles past the centre of Ballyvaughan.
It is in this very place over two hundred years ago, that John Blake Dillon sought refuge before his dramatic escape to America. The house’s old chimney gable still stands testament to its past. The areas rich history, as well as its idyllic location, are not the only attractions one can enjoy and partake in.
It is within these walls every Summer Season that you can enjoy a selection of tasty lunches from the menu, including healthy salads, homemade bread, scones and a range of mouth-watering desserts or simply just soak up the tranquil atmosphere with a glass of wine or a cup of tea.
To add to all this Cathleen grows or sources much of the food she serves from local farmers, and traders.
It is not only the vegetables that are organic the House Wine is none other than the now famous additive free Galway Bay Wine produced in the Languedoc area of France by her brother Noel O’Loughlen. It is from this building that Noel operated one of the first wine shops in Ireland during the early 1980’s.
