The magnificent Barrow Valley is the setting for the Clashganny House Restaurant. Only yards from the picturesque Clashganny Lock, the restaurant is housed in a handsome granite 19th century building, perfectly placed to enjoy a short stroll along the banks of the River Barrow before dinner. Rob White, the chef/owner, had previously been head chef at the celebrated five star Monart Spa in Enniscorthy and he and his wife, Karen, opened the restaurant in 2014.
The menu reflects the chef ’s modern perspective on fine dining and changes regularly to present the very best of seasonal ingredients which are sourced as locally as possible. The combination of fine cuisine, a varied menu, stylish and comfortable dining rooms and professional but welcoming front of house staff has brought great success and earned many favourable reviews. Clashganny House Restaurant was voted ‘Best Newcomer 2014’ in Georgina Campbell’s Guide and also won ‘Best Eating Establishment (Fine) 2015’ at the Carlow Business Awards.
‘With Robert’s excellent cooking, Karen’s warm professional supervision of the dining rooms and the wonderful setting, Clashganny House offers an accessible treat for discerning diners and is set to become a key destination, both for the lucky locals and visitors to the area.’ Georgina Campbell’s Ireland’s Guide
