The mountain is home to the tastiest lamb in the country ~ Cooley lamb ~ and the outlying areas are the final resting place for the famous ancient epic ‘The Brown Bull of Cooley’. Our butcher has his own beef reared on the slopes of the mountain. Our beef is, therefore, one hundred percent Cooley or if sourced further afield – such as the Mourne Mountain lamb & beef – is just across Carlingford Lough.

Our main restaurant menu (see example below) has (or can be adjusted to be) a vegan starter, main course & dessert option.
