About Us

Wild Honey Inn is owned and run by prominent chef Aidan McGrath and his partner Kate Sweeney.

Apart from being a prominent leader of the ‘food revolution’ in Lisdoonvarna and the Burren, Aidan is no stranger to the public eye and his work is much celebrated on TV in Europe, USA, Great Britain and Ireland. He has appeared on the BBC’s Gourmet Ireland, the Holiday Show on Discovery Channel with Samantha Brown as well as RTE’s Afternoon Shows.
It’s been his 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.

A large part of the ‘country comfort’ 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
