Ladies’ Day at the Mustard Seed in Ballingarry, Co Limerick


The award winning Mustard Seed in Ballingarry, Co Limerick is shining a light on leading female food producers with a special dinner to mark International Women’s Day 2018.

On Thursday 8 March, guests to the Ireland’s Blue Book property, which is recommended by Georgina Campbell and has won numerous accolades for its fine dining, customer service and luxurious accommodation, will choose from a menu which features some of head chef Angel Pirev’s favourite ingredients.  Dishes will include salmon from Birgitta Hedin Curtin’s Burren Smokehouse in Co Clare, which was famously served to the Queen of England during her visit to Ireland in 2011, and cheese from award winning Kerry cheesemaker, Maja Binder.

Additional ingredients will be sourced from local businesses in West Limerick, including Cahills’ Cheese and Rigney’s Farm as well as the Mustard Seed garden.  Last year Angel Pirev demonstrated his ethos for using locally sourced produce during an appearance on Neven Maguire’s Irish Food Trails aired on RTE 1.

“We are committed to sourcing excellent quality ingredients to create our dishes,” explained the Mustard Seed proprietor John Edward Joyce.  “Producers like Birgitta, Maja, Helen Cahill and Caroline Rigney are an inspiration and we admire their innovation and creativity.  We are proud to include their produce on our menus.”   

International Women’s Day takes place on Thursday 8 March and celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.  The 2018 campaign theme is #PressforProgress.

The Mustard Seed dinner costs €48.00 per person for 5 courses including tea/coffee with petits fours.  Guests wishing to spend the night in one of the recently refurbished rooms can avail of a special overnight rate of €55 B&B per person sharing.  Pre booking is essential by contacting The Mustard Seed on 069 68508 or email
