Drumanilra wins prestigious awards
Congratulations to Drumanilra Farm Kitchen who has just been awarded two further prestigious titles.
The well know restaurant and farm shop on Elphin Street in Boyle has been named “The Most Welcoming Cafe in the West” in addition to “The Best Cafe Food” at the 2019 Irish Cafe Awards.
Speaking to Boyletoday.com following news of the win, Drumanilra’s Justina Gavin said: Overall Winner Best Cafe Food 2019 and Most Welcoming Cafe in the West! Wow – We’re delighted to receive these two awards. It means a huge amount to our business and to the town of Boyle to receive this kind of national recognition. We are a small team here in Boyle. It’s a real boost to see the hard work of all our team members: in the kitchen, front of house, on the farm and in the polytunnels, rewarded like this. The Best Cafe Food Award is a recognition, not only of the skill and passion of our kitchen team, but also of the fantastic ingredients we use from our own farm and from amazing local and Irish producers. It’s a great start to the year for us and, hopefully, we will see more visitors to the town and to Drumanilra as a result, over the coming months.”
