The Fig Tree Restaurant at Dromoland Castle
The Fig Tree Restaurant, located in the Golf & Country Club at Dromoland Castle, is run by Head Chef David McCann and has gained a reputation for serving only the finest Irish beef. The internationally renowned Dromoland Castle welcomes more than 60,000 visitors per year, 70% of which come from the transatlantic market. Speaking about becoming a member of the club, David McCann, Executive Head Chef of Dromoland Castle Estate said:
I choose to use Certified Black Angus Beef from Musgrave Marketplace as it consistently delivers the right size, marbling, tenderness and above all fantastic flavour. Every steak is fully traceable from farm to fork by Certified Irish Angus which provides me with the consistency and confidence I need.
James Canavan, Trading Manager Musgrave Market Place said:
We are honoured to have Dromoland Castle as the first member to be selected for this initiative which will introduce our superior product to discerning visitors both from Ireland and overseas. Our customers are increasingly demanding full transparency on the provenance of the food ingredients we supply to them and, in particular when it comes to beef they are insisting that it is Irish and locally produced where possible. The Certified Irish Angus Beef brand provides the reassurance they need that the product has come from an Irish farm and is produced to the highest standards.
