We pride ourselves on good quality, carefully sourced produce from local suppliers, using ingredients that are in season and offering specialties such as locally reared lamb and locally produced cheeses.
The Vanilla Pod has been rated in ‘Tom Doorley’s Top 100 Places To Eat in Ireland’ and has consistently featured in the coveted Bridgestone & Georgina Campbell Guide to Ireland.
