Fresh from farm to plate; few artisan eateries on our Island can offer you the finest organic foods, produced with love on their very own local farm. Drumanilra Farm Kitchen has gained much recognition and a growing dedicated fan base for their food philosophy and diligent approach to organic grassroots farming.
"Welcome to the Drumanilra Farm Kitchen Using fantastic ingredients, from our own organic farm, to make food of rare tastiness".
The small family run organic farm rears Irish native breeds outdoors on the shores of Lough Key in County Roscommon. Their pedigree herd of Irish Dexters are an endangered native cattle breed, renowned for flavoursome and well-marbled beef. Owners Liam and Justina also raise rare-breed Jacob sheep slowly on grass, while the pedigree sows produce small batches of outdoor Berkshire and Irish Grazer (Tamworth) pork. Rashers and hams are hand-cured, using a traditional organic dry cure, and the organic 95% pork sausages are handmade.
For Christmas, Drumanilra raises organic free range geese, ducks and bronze turkeys. Throughout the year, they keep a flock of laying hens and several polytunnels to grow organic salads and vegetables to complement the meats, served and sold in the Drumanilra Farm Kitchen and Shop.
The Farm Kitchen has its quirky home in a renovated old house in the centre of Boyle in Roscommon. You can dine in a restored room in the old house, or in the garden on picnic benches in Summer. There is a roaring wood fire in winter, children’s corner with books and games, a sandpit outside and the weekend papers on Saturdays. Dogs on leads welcome in the garden.
"Delicious" Visited this lovely little cafe and sat in the garden. The menu is not extensive but everything is made to order fresh and bought to the table. Staff were very pleasant. Little play pit for children and games too to keep them occupied which was a nice touch.will go again when visiting...

"Wonderful food" Had lunch here recently and it was AMAZING. Their extensive menu is packed full of organic locally sourced tasty food options. Would highly recommend dropping in here for a bite - well worth the visit!! I had the BLT on sourdough and it was divine. The coffee is excellent as well - Art of Coffee is my favourite coffee. Takeout available here as well and the farm shop is stocked with delicious foods.

Local Organic Beautiful Food and Service! Really enjoyed finding a meal where all the ingredients were amazing - sourced locally and ethically. The staff was so helpful, answering our questions about fishing and where to go. Great place for kids, they had a dress up box and sandbox and kids artwork on display inside. Only wish this restaurant was in my home town in California!
