Eating at Castle Coole
Tuck into a seasonal menu of hot lunches, sandwiches, teas, coffees, cakes and bakes in the historic Tallow House Tea-room at Castle Coole.
The tea-room is set in the former Tallow House at Castle Coole, where soap and candles were once made for the estate.
You can sit in the vaulted stone-built rooms and refuel with freshly prepared food, tasty treats and drinks. There’s indoor seating as well as outdoor seating on the Drying Green area.
We use local produce in many of the dishes we serve and we're proud to support local businesses too.
You’ll find cheese from the award winning Fivemiletown and ice cream from Tickety Moo, made right on our doorstep in Fermanagh.
We also use produce from the nearby Kitchen Garden at Florence Court, including home-grown leaves and herbs in our salads and different vegetables throughout the growing season.
Most of the food and drink served is prepared on site in our kitchen, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free.
If you have an allergy or intolerance and would like ingredient information about the food and drink served, please ask the staff, who will be happy to help.
