The Kitchen @ Gorey

1-4 North Parade


Sisters- in-law Cathy and Jane Farrell are the faces behind The Kitchen @ Gorey. These dynamic women have pooled hospitality, interior design skills and business brains with a natural love of good food, in a restaurant with wholesome local produce at it’s heart. Cathy is a native Irish woman, Jane is from Australia. She met Cathy’s brother in London. Cathy meanwhile was studying at catering college in Dublin, then working in the industry, before managing front of house here at the previous restaurant where she is now a business partner. When it closed and the property became vacant, it took Jane returning from Australia to Ireland with her husband, for the pair to make the decision to launch their own restaurant business.

Cathy had always loved the space and felt it could make a fantastic showcase for local foods. Jane agreed. As the girls say ‘It’s our different strengths that enable us to work together successfully.’
Menus here are well constructed and based on the team’s global dining experiences. At lunch a choice of fabulous fresh salads and sandwiches, plus Hot Stuff, Favourites, Blackboard Specials and Treats. Great value to be had in all areas, with a Lightning Lunch selection for those in a hurry. 

At dinner, the charcoal grill and wood fired oven are fired up for traditional style pizzas and other wood fired delights. Five substantial mains plus a Daily Pie, Savoury Tart or Salad. A cute menu for the Little Ones means kids under twelve can also enjoy smaller portions of their favourites.

Sunday Roast is gaining iconic status amongst locals and visitors to the town, with Irish beef, chicken or pork served with all the trimmings and billowing Yorkshire Puddings. In keeping with menu presentation, the wine list is easy to navigate and well thought out with offerings by glass, carafe or bottle. Irish craft beers and cider and European beers extend the choice.
All this enjoyed in an alternatively designed, industrial style space with an open kitchen and the informal relaxed feel will appeal to families as well as those wishing for a more intimate dining experience. Located in Gorey town centre just off the main street. Definitely well worth seeking out.
