A world-renowned cookery school

The multi-award-winning Ballymaloe Cookery School has been delivering first-class culinary education since 1983.

The Garden Tours are an absolute must for anyone keen to learn about its history, the astonishing variety of plants, the daily maintenance and seasonal planting, and the organic composting.
