The Strand Cahore has been approved and accepted into the Good Food Ireland and we are very humbled and grateful to our dedicated and hard-working team whom without, this achievement would not have been possible. Every business featured in Good Food Ireland is visited personally by independent inspectors and reviewed, prior to being given the seal of approval.

Each year 100's of applications are received but only a small percentage are invited to join.

You will be immersed in the farm to fork lifestyle that defines and inspires us every day with unparalleled connected journeys through our the Good Food Ireland approved membership network.
Food and Special & Dietary Requirements
Our passion for food is translated in our menu, focusing on freshness, flavours and colours. We are a young, family run business and our ethos is simple, traditional, honest food. We prepare a small menu focusing on country wide artisanal farms and producers where possible. We lovingly prepare our own breads, sauces, dips, patés and desserts daily in a traditional homemade fashion and and cook all of our dishes to order to achieve the highest quality & freshness. This however does take time to prepare so please do relax and unwind in the company of family & friends at The Strand Cahore and we hope you enjoy your visit!
The food allergens used in the preparation of our food is available in conjunction with each menu item and is numbered according to the allergen. Please see below directory to guide you and if you have any further questions regarding our allergens, please do let us know.
We cater for gluten intolerances, vegetarians & vegans – please let us know if you have a specific request and we will endeavour to cater where possible.
Our children’s menu is available to children up to 12 years of age. Half portions of our main menu are available (where possible) for children up to 12 years of age. This also applies to our children’s menu, if you would like an adult portion of an item on our children’s menu, please ask!

It is advisable to make a reservation prior to your arrival to avoid disappointment. Our reservations number is 053 94 27486
We understand that people may run late for their booked time however, we would ask that you phone ahead to avoid your reservation being surrendered to another guest and/or to avoid disappointment of being asked to vacate your table early.
