Our local Butcher is Derek Dunne. All of our crab and lobster are local. We use Potters Farm for all eggs and they have a Farm shop based in the Restaurant. Chef Paul also grows a lot of his own ingredients and compliments these with foraging and his Barter System. Gluten free and coeliac as well as all other dietary needs catered for on giving prior notice.
At the Mystic Celt we believe the most important ingredient in any recipe is the customer. Local Artists display their ware for sale in the Restaurant. Recently we have developed a new awareness of the dishes of our ancestors and the confidence to recreate and enrich our native culinary tradition. A new Irish food culture emerges, driven by the lavish bounties of our seas, lakes and the rich land of Erin. Our menu is a celebration of the rich, ancient food culture of a uniquely beautiful land. This is our tribute to the country of our birth, a land where we are privileged to live.“Ní bheidh a Leitheid ann arís
