Our restaurant is set in a famine-era cottage which was built in the 1800s and has been brought back to life since we opened our doors in late 2022.

Situated at the end of the Salthill Promenade, Blackrock Cottage is perfect for a relaxing evening with friends and colleagues, entertaining clients, or mixing business with pleasure.

Our award-winning executive head chef Martin O’Donnell — and his culinary team, led by sous chef Michael McManus — have designed a range of menu options to choose from.

They will be happy to work with clients to create a bespoke offering that will cater for your company’s specific dining needs — from finger-food to tasting plates to one of our distinctive three-course menus.

Martin’s dishes celebrate the finest in Irish and global cuisine, using locally sourced, premium ingredients, that cater to a wide range of preferences and palates.

Our General Manager Mathieu Teulier, an experienced Sommelier, will also help you to choose a wine from our extensive list that will complement your meal and make your evening all the more enjoyable.

Mathieu or one of his team will also talk you through our popular cocktail menu, while we also have a range of non-alcoholic options to pick from.

If a wine-tasting event is something you might be interested in, Mathieu would also be happy to tell you more about what we can offer.

A pint of Guinness is also always a popular choice!

Our commitment to excellence also extends to quality service, tailored to the needs of our corporate clientele.

So whether you’re celebrating a success, sealing a deal, hosting some clients or colleagues, or want to enjoy some team bonding, Blackrock Cottage can help you to make some wonderful memories.

Blackrock Cottage seamlessly blends the art of fine dining in a cosy, intimate atmosphere.
And if the weather allows, our terrace is perfect for taking in the sights, sounds and maybe even some sunshine as you overlook the Atlantic Ocean.

So if you’d like to book a table, bring a larger group along, or perhaps you might like the entire restaurant to yourselves for that launch event, special occasion or private party, get in touch and we’d be happy to work with you to create your event.

We look forward to helping you make some special memories with us in Salthill.
