The Grainstore at Ballymaloe has been tastefully renovated to offer a very diverse and intimate backdrop for any occasion. Be it a birthday, conference, concert or a wedding.
The venue reflects the ease of the beautiful surrounds of Ballymaloe; with the farm, gardens and house at it’s door step.There are endless options to suit every occasion.
Be it tea / coffee and fresh scones with jams and honey in the morning. A selection of baked biscuits at 11 o’clock break.
Then a light lunch starting with a seasonal soup followed by Gubbeen glazed ham, fresh garden salads and vegetables, selection of Irish farmhouse cheeses and home made breads and chutneys.
A more elaborate lunch, with caramelized pear and Crozier blue salad , traditional roast chicken with thyme stuffing followed by a slice of chocolate tart and ice cream and to end coffee and petit fours.
Prices start at €35 / person.
Have the Grainstore transferred into a restaurant dressed up with garden flowers and candle lit tables. Greeted with bubbles and a selection of canapés. Then seated for a 4 course dinner with delicious produce from the local area. Or let us cook a 6 course taster menu with accompanying wine to go with each course.
Perhaps you would prefer a simpler option, Have a main-course like a Thai green curry followed by a selection of desserts like chocolate mousse, cardamom cream and seasonal fruit jelly’s.
Have us put on a Farmers market inside the Grainstore. Lots of different stalls on the outside perimeter of the room serving steak sandwiches, kebabs, olive stall stuff, crêpes, ice cream and the best hand-roasted espresso coffee you have ever had. People would help themselves to food and take a seat at tables in the middle of the room and also upstairs.
The Grainstore and the grounds of Ballymaloe House have a special kind of magic about them and Rebecca really understands how to create the fun, intimate and rustic style of wedding that works in those surrounds. We felt completely relaxed and at home from the minute we arrived to start our preparations, so much so that we didn’t want to leave at the end of the celebrations! Rebecca and all of the staff from the Grainstore did a wonderful job to make sure our wedding day was everything we had hoped for and more, and they went out of their way to make sure it was the perfect day for us. Ted’s food was excellent and we cannot recommend Mark’s coffee stand more as the perfect addition to a wedding and one which made a huge impression on our guests! Thanks to all at the Grainstore for an amazing day, Orla & Dave
