Organic Fantastic

The BrookLodge Hotel and Spa at Macreddin Village has some seriously impressive credentials.

Not only is it AA Hotel of the Year 2008/2009, but it is also home to Ireland’s only certified organic restaurant, The Strawberry Tree. In accordance with EU and Irish Regulation, it is illegal to store, prepare or serve non-organic foodstuffs in The Strawberry Tree, which is nice to know when a lot of what we eat is tainted with nasty chemical residues. Peruse the pesticide-tree menu and wine list and enjoy the excellent organic and wild food offerings. Locally sourced game dishes come highly recommended and the menu is changed regularly to reflect seasonality.

Treat yourself to an overnight stay and let your body benefit further – breakfast is organic too.
