The Green Barn Shop & Restaurant

Halibut with seasonal produce

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 Saturday night.

We love to host weddings, private parties, christenings, communions, and any worthy occasion.

The Green Barn combines large open spaces with high ceilings and expansive wall spaces, with movable panelled partitions to create that perfect space for any size of group.

The restaurant 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.

The Green Barn is based on old style Scandinavian barns with a New England twist, combining high ceilings, rustic textures, individual tables settings, giant branches, flowers from the garden and potted vegetables on all the tables.

Dexter Cattle from our meadow grassland

Dexter Cattle

History of the Dexter

Originally regarded as the “poor man’s cow” Dexter cattle are the smallest of all European cattle breeds. In Irish history, Dexter cattle were selectively bred as a “dual purpose” animal for small farming families in the south west of Ireland. The breed is extremely hardy and can thrive in upland mountains and boggy wetlands. Dexter animals almost became extinct as modern agriculture took hold and opted for a larger more productive breed of cattle. This rare breed of conservation has more recently been acknowledged for its slow maturing, excellent tasting beef which is highly desired by restaurant owners and food enthusiasts. The ever-growing demand for the high favoured product has seen the breed recover from almost extinction which helps protect Dexter’s and ensure that they will be a feature of the Irish landscape and culture.

Why choose Burtown House Prime Dexter Beef
