Our Chef and Gardener are Embracing Seasonal and Local Foods for Your Menu
Discover the Delights of Seasonal and Local Foods at Horetown House
By choosing seasonal foods, you can create a menu that reflects the flavours of the region and time of year. Additionally, working with local suppliers allows us to reduce transportation emissions and support the economic viability of family farms and rural communities in Wexford. At Horetown House, we are dedicated to creating memorable culinary experiences that prioritise sustainability and community.
Crafting a Seasonal and Local Menu for Your Event
When planning your event at Horetown House, we work with our head Chef to craft four seasonally appropriate menus’ that offers the best locally grown seasonal fruits, vegetables, herbs and ingredients depending on the time of year your event takes place. This takes all the guess work out of it for you and it ensures that your guests will enjoy the freshest and most flavourful dishes whilst also reducing the environmental impact of your celebration.

More Than Meat and Two Veg
Our Menu offers choice of two mains and incorporates meats sourced from local farms and producers. This supports the community and reduces the transportation emissions associated with importing these items from faraway locations. Our second main choice incorporates a plant based option. We are passionate about celebrating the very best of each season, and want to elevate seasonal dishes grown right here at Horetown House . Plant-based dishes often have a lower environmental impact than meat-based ones.

Sourcing Local Ingredients for Your Horetown House Event
At Horetown House, we pride ourselves on our strong relationships with local farmers, artisans, and food producers. We work closely with these partners to source the highest-quality, sustainable ingredients for your event menu. By choosing to work with local suppliers, we can ensure that your celebration is as eco-friendly and community-focused as possible
Make good choices
The challenge with food is not having options, but knowing which options to choose. Where possible, we have made choices so that whichever option you go for, it’s a great choice. What we want is for you and your guests to go away from Horetown House saying “that was the best food I’ve ever had” and when we can do that with ethical, sustainable, luxurious produce, it’s a win win for everyone.
