Tara Hotel Mission Statement
The Tara Hotel is situated at the heart of Ireland’s largest Fishing Port, Killybegs. At the Tara Hotel we seek to promote and utilize west of Ireland produce along the Wild Atlantic Way and the Causeway Coastal Drive. Our aim is to source locally grown, high quality, artisan products to create the perfect menu.
My inspiration for food has come from having being born & brought up in Killybegs, going to sea with my father, holidays in the Rosses with my grandparents & from being at sea myself. This is where I learned to use ingredients from the sea, land & air to combine a depth of flavours and textures. I have used these traditions and experience to showcase my culinary adventure.
We are proud to be working with so many small, local artisan food producers from the West of Ireland & the North Coast; from Gallagher Meats in Castlefinn for our beef & lamb; Glenside Bacon Company in Glenties; Donegal Bees in Glencolmcille for our honey; Murrin’s Fish Ltd & Starcrest Seafood’s for our fresh fish; Paul McHugh of Inver for our Mussels; The Haughey Family & Gerard Ellison for our fresh shellfish; Atlantic Treasure for their award winning smoked fish; AlgAran seaweed harvesters; Glenborin free range eggs; McGettigan’s Butchers for their award winning sausages; Donegal Creameries; O’Donnell’s Bakery; Donegal Rapeseed Oil; Frylite; Michael Kerrigan & Season Harvest for fruit & vegetables; Glin Valley Poultry, West Cork; Yeats Country Dairy, Convoy; Pallas Foods; Lynas Foods; Jordan’s Sea Salt, Magheroarty.
The Tara Hotel A La Carte & Bistro menus offer dishes that my team are passionate about. We thrive on excellence, good presentation and the quality of the product.
We hope you enjoy the culinary adventure.
