STEPHEN MC ARDLE

Stephen McArdle, Chef Patron at Barrows Keep has found his ideal place to cook the food he’s always wanted to: locally sourced and with a strong identity.

Stephen was influenced throughout his life starting as a child at home about the importance of good quality food, abundant with flavor. This influence was re-enforced throughout his early career working with talented chefs in Belfast, Dublin and London.

His attention to the smallest details stemmed from his work in Michelin restaurants. His dream of creating his own plates in his own restaurants has led Stephen along the journey here, to his third restaurant, in Graiguenamanagh; Barrows Keep.

Locally sourced and as organic as possible, Stephen focuses on intensely flavored dishes of seasonality and all that this corner of the world has to offer.
