Grove House is a family-run guest house and restaurant situated in Schull. An historic building, Grove House has previously hosted distinguished guests such as George B Shaw, Jack Yeats and Edith Somerville. In keeping with the house’s history, there are regular music recitals, art exhibitions and writers’ retreats.

grove3Grove House restaurant is the perfect venue for smaller functions or private dinner parties. The restaurant is open to the public, as well as guests, and features a three-course set menu, as well as daily specials. The kitchen uses home grown and local produce as ingredients and whatever is in season will be on the table. The restaurant is fortunate to have so many local producers of cheese, meat and vegetables on its doorstep – as well as its own vegetable garden and supply of fresh eggs. Grove offers a substantial wine list and coffee can be served in the bar or the outdoor area.

“Dinner is a real treat cooked by Katarina and son Nico. Max, Katarina’s other son, makes sure guests are well taken care of.” Karen Brown’s Ireland

“Integrity with eccentricity, that’s the kind of cocktail that appeals to the Bridgestone Guides, and it’s just what you will find in lovely Grove House…West Cork is celebrated as a free-spirited place, and it is seen in all its glory in Grove House.” The Bridgestone 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland.

From food and music to works of art, Schull’s Grove House is a West Cork treasure.” The Examiner, Mary Leland.

“With young Nico firing out homely and delicious food in the Grove House kitchens, a third generation of the Runske family steps into the limelight…Katarina Runske is a human dynamo, one of those extraordinary people whose elemental energy is astounding to an outsider… Grove somehow summarises the classy bohemianism of Schull. It’s patrician, eccentric, 100 per cent West Cork.” The Bridgestone 100 Best Places to Stay in Ireland, 2012.
