A proper chair, a proper table I can put my elbows on… I like it nice and simple.”

Our head chef lee Byrne was born in Dublin but spent most of his life traveling the world, from his schooling in the Middle East to working all over Europe and America. this has greatly influenced his passion for the culinary arts, lee studied and got his degree in berlin it was here he opened his first restaurant ( The Dubliner named after himself ), he was also one of the first chefs to import quality Irish beef into berlin, two years later he expanded to a second restaurant and cocktail bar ( the Celtic Corner ) outside catering and events management played a huge role in the new business.

In 2007 lee returned to Ireland where he worked in some of the biggest and busiest hotels both as chef and senior manager. After moving around the country lee settled in co. Mayo where he lives with his New York wife and 3 young children , most of his time was spent working as head chef in award winning Flannagans Gastro pub where he helped the team to get multiple restaurant and bar awards .
