Located just opposite Dunbrody Country House where the restaurant has received numerous awards the simple philosophy of under-stated but delicious food follows on in the Dunbrody Cookery School.    All of the courses at the Dunbrody Cookery School have been personally designed by Celebrity Masterchef Kevin Dundon who can often be viewed on RTE in Ireland and PBS in the USA with his TV show Modern Irish Food, HEAT and BBC′s Saturday Kitchen. The cookery school has also received numerous excellent reports from magazines like Departures Magazine, Sainsbury′s Food, Waitrose Illustrated, Olive, Food & Wine and many newspapers too.

Under the care and guidance of our Cookery School Chef Instructor Julien Clemot, guests will learn the secrets of producing fine food using only the best of quality Irish ingredients. The emphasis at Dunbrody Cookery School is on freshness and seasonality of locally-sourced ingredients and utilising these to achieve fabulous dishes without the worry of overly-complicated recipes.

Our belief is that cooking should be fun and our courses are designed to be fun also.
