The Green Barn Shop & Restaurant
The Green Barn is located just inside the front gates of Burtown House, set in the front parkland overlooking our walled kitchen garden. It is easily accessible as a quick lunch stop, or for a more relaxed luncheon style affair or for dinner on Friday and Saturday night. It is not necessary to pay into the gardens to visit The Green Barn, as it is set within its own garden space.
We love to host private parties, christenings, communions, and small weddings or any worthy occasion.
The Green Barn combines large open spaces with high ceilings and expansive wall spaces, with movable panelled partitions to create that more intimate perfect space for any size of group.
This all opens out onto an exterior terrace, and again into a series of courtyard spaces that each tell a different story and create a different ambience. There are areas reserved for parents with children and areas that are reserved for guests who would like to dine with the more relaxing sound of our surrounding wildlife and old world jazz music.
The Green Barn is based on old style Scandinavian barns with a New England twist, combining high ceilings, rustic textures, individual tables settings, and specially designed pottery, linen and cutlery.
To book a table, send us an email, or call The Green Barn on +353 (59) 8623865.

Head Gardener Dermot Carey overseas our production of organic produce. We are almost 100 % self sufficient. From time to time a crop might fail but is normally supplemented with an alternative. At the moment we only buy in potatoes but from a local organic supplier.
We serve only the freshest possible seasonal produce that has almost always come straight from our organic kitchen garden that very morning. We believe in serving what we like to eat, honest, unfussy, unpretentious food, letting our produce be the strength in what you eat. We like to combine seasonal ingredients, using flavours, textures, and colours and to experiment all the time, hence offering changing menu’s that reflect what is happening in our garden.
The Green Barn’s interior spaces are rustic and contemporary, with an amazing view of our kitchen garden. Normally with different art exhibitions, large photos from the acclaimed Vanishing Ireland books, as well as sculptures from Zimbabwe and by Irish artists, with French and Dutch antiques sourced specifically for The Green Barn, we also have an ever expanding array of interiors accessories, food products, books, prints and every changing objects de art.
Our menu reflects what is happening in the garden, and whats comes in that day may vary so that dishes are different from week to week.
All our beef is sourced from an organic farm just down the road, as are our eggs and poultry.
We do our best to source an interesting array of Irish cheeses from an ever growing broad selection from our wonderful Irish Cheesemakers.
Olive Oils are infused with kitchen garden herbs and for our salts we use a combination of celtic sea salt and pink himalayan salt.
For our Pizzas or Rustic Flatbreads as we like to call them, we aim to give you the best there is. We have built our own purpose built wood fired oven. Thin, crispy, light and loaded with our flavoursome organic seasonal vegetables, wild garlic, and specially selected meats and cheeses.
Our homemade burgers of organic beef, are one of a kind, combining a selection of herbs and vegetables to create our very own special taste and texture. With twice cooked handcuff chips and other seasonal accompaniments, it is our best selling dish.
We hope you enjoy our carefully selected menu that have changing seasonal dishes as well as some regular dishes that we find hard not include all the time.
