Fear an Tí
Diarmuid, a blow in from Cork, grew up in a small rural pub so hospitality runs deep in his veins. He started chefing when his sister and brother-in-law turned the family bar into a now award-winning gastro-pub.
He has always had a passion for the Irish language and saw his love of food as the perfect vehicle for creating a space where the language could flourish. He trained at Ballymaloe Cookery School, an ideal place for anyone with a passion for quality and sustainability.
