Goatsbridge Trout Farm
The house itself is a country farm house built in 1845, it has been the home of the Neary family for over four generations and is located approximately five miles outside the historic city of Kilkenny at Cuffesgrange.
When it comes to food the ethos of Anne and the Ryeland House Cookery School has always been one of using locally sourced, great quality ingredients. Much of the food used at Ryeland House is grown on the home farm, our neighbours farms or is produced locally by skilled artisan food makers. All the eggs used in our cooking come from our own free range hens, which guests and students are encouraged to visit during their time at Ryeland.
Naturally enough being a country house we are located in the country side, a little off the beaten track in Kilkenny’s rich farm lands. Ryeland House Cookery School is located a short drive outside the historic city of Kilkenny.
