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.

Dúchas Clonakilty's first lecture for the Autumn promises to be of huge interest to all: Emerging from the Shadow of Tom Crean – The Parish Centre, Clonakilty, Thursday September 28th 8.30pm.

Lecture by Aileen Crean O’Brien & Bill Sheppard

In May 2016, Kerry man Tom Crean, along with Ernest Shackleton and four other crew members, landed the James Caird lifeboat on the rocky isle of South Georgia. The navigation of that small boat, across 1500 km through icy winds and towering seas, is regarded as the greatest ever feat of navigation. They then trekked across the forbidding and inhospitable mountains and glaciers of South Georgia to seek help for the rest of their crew, who were left behind on Elephant Island after their ship, the Endurance, was crushed by the Antarctic ice.

One hundred years later, Crean’s grandaughter, Aileen Crean O’Brien, set off with her sons and partner to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps. Join Aileen and Bill to hear of their adventures (and misadventures) on the Southern Ocean and the island of South Georgia.
