Since 2006 we’ve been getting up stupidly early to bake all of our tarts and cakes ourselves. That way, we know you’re getting food that’s made by skilled bakers rather than cold machines. And you’d actually recognise our ingredients. Fresh eggs, real butter, great fruit, good-quality chocolate… proper food.
We’re fussy about the coffee we serve in our cafés in Ballincollig and Midleton, too. Our baristas are the real deal. We had to buy them a ridiculously expensive La Marzocco coffee/espresso machine from Florence in Italy to keep them happy. We don’t scrimp on the coffee either. We get our beans from Cork Coffee Roasters. Trust us: they’re good.
We also bake cakes to order. For weddings, birthdays, anniversaries… any occasion, really. There’s always a reason for a top-notch, handmade cake.Come and treat yourself in one of our cafés, or visit our stand at Mahon Point Farmers’ Market on Thursday mornings and Midleton Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings.
There has been a hotel on the beach at Garryvoe since the early 1900s and while the world has changed beyond recognition, some things have thankfully remained the same – the golden, sandy, five-mile beach; the view of Ballycotton and its lighthouse, and the smiling faces at the Garryvoe Hotel – a family-owned, independent four-star hotel.
You and your needs are foremost in our minds and we hope we’ve thought of everything to make your stay special!
