Executive Head Chef Mark Saples is dedicated to using only the most exceptionally fresh and seasonal ingredients, which is why he made the move from Dublin to Cork — a region known for its unique local produce. Whether its traditional venison loins or a modern take on an old Irish dish, Chef Saples delivers contemporary style and traditional Irish cuisine across three food and drink venues at the hotel
Perrotts Garden Bistro – Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the Manor's sunlit garden at this AA Rosette Restaurant, where you can sample and savor internationally inspired dishes crafted from locally sourced, seasonal produce and meat in a light and airy atmosphere reminiscent of a Victorian conservatory.
Orchids Restaurant – French doors open out to a welcoming terrace surrounded by greenery at the hotel's signature restaurant, where traditional Irish cuisine and impeccable service come together for memory-making meals. Enjoy dishes like loin of Ballinwillin venison, turbot a la Bordelaise, or blackened and cured trout, capped off with a desert of dark chocolate and clementine tart.
The Manor Bar – Surround yourself with Old World charm at The Manor Bar where dark wood paneling, warm-hued walls, and soft armchairs sit next to a crackling fireplace and set the mood for evening aperitifs and after-dinner cocktails. Enjoy a whiskey tasting, a pint, or a glass of wine served by expert mixologists who are also happy to offer suggestions or a custom-made drink.
While at Hayfield Manor, you'll find yourself slipping easily into the life of an Irish aristocrat. Wake up to breakfast in bed before enjoying an energizing morning bath, followed by a light lunch at one of the hotel's two award-winning restaurants. Spend a few hours enjoying a good book in the library, sip afternoon tea on the Manor Terrace before strolling the two-acre walled garden. Swim in the indoor pool, work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center, and relish a post-workout soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi or sweat it out in the sauna or steam room. While away a day without obligation at The Beautique Spa and indulge in Elemis Spa treatments, such as anti-aging soothing facials, a hot stone massage, a thousand flower detox wrap, or commission a custom designed menu of treatments curated just for you by expert therapists and aestheticians.
Outside the hotel, the city of Cork and its cobble streets, small shops, and restaurants serving the country's best produce and meat offers a lifetime of experiences and activities. Just outside the city, the Irish countryside welcomes you to a land of heritage, myth, castles, and villages.
