Our Review of Richys Restaurant

When it comes to providing good food, great service and highlighting local produce Richy Virahsawmy means business. At Richy's Bar and Bistro, the Clonakilty based restaurant where he plies his trade in the name of culinary genius, it's all about local. And why not?

Clonakilty is at the heart of West Cork gourmet heritage. It's fitting this Mauritian Londoner, who moved here several years ago, should focus on the foods of the region, in an establishment located in the epicentre of artisan Ireland.  

Alongside the successful cafe and restaurant at Richy's, comes the opportunity to learn how to cook with the man himself.  Groups are taken into the sacred domaine of the kitchen, and put through their paces in style.  Cookery Classes have family, seasonal and special occasion themes and details of dates are available on the website.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
