“At Hotel Doolin we have a passion for delivering original wholesome and inventive food with local organic produce and by using homegrown ingredients. North Clare is a haven for independent, artisan producers and we are blessed to be surrounded by such an abundance of suppliers that supply us with quality produce. Fifth generation butcher Noel O’Connor of O’Connor Meats in Limerick supplies beef from the pastures of North Clare and lamb from Kilshanny. Fresh seafood is supplied daily by Garrihy’s Seafood in Doolin and smoked salmon is supplied by the famous Birgitta Hedin Curtin of Burren Smokehouse. All vegetables are supplied by Richardsons in Limerick, supported by regular advice on seasonality and availability of local produce.

What is Just Ask?

Bord Bia’s Just Ask initiative was established in 2009 to recognise restaurants across the country that demonstrate best practice both in sourcing local produce, and profiling suppliers on their menus. Listing the local farmers and businesses involved with bringing a menu together can enhance the experience for diners and promotes better engagement with the farm to fork journey.

To date, there have been over 80 winners, selected by food writer Georgina Campbell in collaboration with Bord Bia. Each month, a Restaurant of the Month is selected for an eatery that exemplifies the principles of the campaign, with a leading restaurant chosen for the annual Restaurant of the Year award.
