“After training in Newry Collage of Catering I worked in several high class establishments in Killarney, Chicago, Berlin, Dublin and Dundalk. I was able to put my specialised culinary skills to use in preparing a wide range of international dishes for guests. In 1999 I returned to Carlingford to open our own restaurant and the rest, as they say, is history…”

“I have always enjoyed working and interacting with people and luckily my brother Mark and I get along very well! I still love the buzz associated with this business and I work the floor and manage the non-kitchen staff. After all these years I still love my work and I think it shows.”
