Our Signiture Dish…Burren Béilíní
Usually served as part of our special events
What is Burren Béilíní?
Béi-lín-í (bale-een-ee): n; pl: snack or little meal of Irish origin, derived from Gaelic noun béile meaning ‘meal’.
At Kilshanny we are Wild, Local, Seasonable and Sustainable! Our Burren Béilíní borrows from the Spanish tapas serving bite-sized tastes of the local area. What we serve in our Béilíní is dictated by what is available locally and what is in season. The Béilíní is a tangible representation of the culture, farming and culinary history of our particular region, of its terroir* creating a sense of place.
Some of the ingredients Mary uses in making the Burren Béilíní are Birgittas’ Burren smoked salmon, Siobhán’s St. Tola Cheese, Kevin’s seasonal greens, Wild Atlantic seaweed, local farmer’s Burren beef & lamb, Eva’s Burren Free Range Pork, Deborah’s preserves from her Clareville House Kitchen Garden, Jason’s organic eggs, hedgerow berries, hazelnuts, wild garlic and home-grown herbs, all will be served with a homely warm welcome and a smile!
*“Terroir is the set of special characteristics that the geography, geology and climate of a certain place, interacting with the plant’s genetics, express in agricultural products such as wine, coffee, tea and chocolate. Terroir can be loosely translated as a “sense of place”, which is embodied in certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has had on the production of the food or drink product.”
