The idea was to open a place that felt like home, with warmth, light and good company. We set out to create a dining pub that we wanted to eat in and the style of food Aidan liked to cook. A place where the food and service is first class but the feel is relaxed and unfussy and what’s on your plate depends on the seasons.
A large part of the ‘country chic’ style and welcoming atmosphere of Wild Honey Inn is thanks to Kate – whose care and attention-to-detail really makes for a great stay. Kate entered the hospitality industry many years back from an accounting background; she also has a BA Hons degree in English, Media & Communication. Kate looks after the Inn’s front-of-house, overseeing its day-to-day running, food service and everything else in between. Kate loves the variety involved in running the Inn and the people she gets to meet – and along with her assistants, are happy to help in any way she can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
It’s been Aidans ambition for quite some time to promote and raise the standard of pub dining in Ireland. And his hard work and determination has not gone un-noticed.
Aidan won a Michelin Star for his robust and confident cooking in the Michelin Guide, Great Britain and Ireland 2018.
Wild Honey Inn is the first pub to be awarded a Michelin Star for food in Ireland and currently is the only pub with this accolade.
