Fáilte go Scoil Chócaireachta an Daingin.
Based in the colourful seaside town of Dingle. The Dingle Cookery School was awarded Best Cookery School in Ireland 2019 (Food Awards Ireland) and Culinary Experience of the Year 2020 (Travel & Hospitality Awards).
The school is run by chef Mark Murphy and hospitality manager Muireann Nic Giolla Ruaidh who between them have 30 plus years’ experience. Using as much local and Irish ingredients as they can they are proud ambassadors of the exciting and emerging Irish food scene.
Fun and learning are intertwined within classes allowing a very enjoyable experience for all while ensuring guests receive a warm welcome and eat wonderful food.
Both Mark and Muireann believe that learning to cook is one of the greatest things (gifts one can) to ever experience. Once the basic techniques of cooking are understood not alone will you become a better cook but cooking will become very enjoyable.
“Fun, informative & delicious experience
Spent 5 hours at this school on a rainy Irish day. I heard a very interesting history of Irish food then was treated to several hours of hands on training learning to make Dingle Pies, Brown Bread, Apple pie. I know quite a bit about food preparation but still learned different things and thoroughly enjoyed the class. We consumed all the delicioius food we made as a group (9 of us). Recipes of everything made were handed out at the end of class.
“A perfect package
We went for a day of traditional Irish cooking. The only way it could have been better is if we’d been there for a Catch of the Day school to be able to take advantage of whatever came into Dingle Harbor. The site is perfect, comfortable, roomy, well-equipped. The lessons were thorough and delicious, and included a lovely, concise history of Irish cuisine. I hope to get back for that Catch of the Day version.
“Excellent class all around
There were 23 of us attending a multi course cooking adventure focusing on Irish traditional fare: a fish starter, followed by a flavorful beef stew and apple cake. Our group members learned great cooking tips from Mark Murphy: a very knowledgeable and passionate chef. What a great way to spend a rainy afternoon in Dingle! We will be back next year. Thank you Mark, MuireAnn and Caroline for your guidance, expertise and kindness.
