Our Story

Upscale, casual dining has always been the focus at Brasserie on the Corner, specialising in quality, locally-sourced, superior steak and seafood dishes.

The culinary team in Brasserie on the Corner take a in-house approach, preparing and cooking all dishes, where possible, from scratch. From freshly baked breads each morning, to smoking meats and ageing beef in-house, along with creating tempting pastries and desserts, right down to making original recipes for sauces and soup.

Suppliers are also key, working with local producers for a real taste of the West of Ireland. From farm to fork, market to plate, vineyard to glass, every taste tells a story.

If enjoying a glass of red or white with your meal, Brasserie on the Corner boasts more than 40 boutique wines primarily sourced from family owned vineyards across the globe.

Next door, the adjoining Blake’s Corner Bar is your quintessential Irish bar where you can enjoy live music at weekends, along with delicious bar food.
