Garden Cafe, Killruddery House, Bray

killruddery-bbqA few of us headed out to Killruddery House the weekend before last, to see the very lovely Enchanted Garden outdoor exhbition.  It’s a beautiful place, with huge gardens.  There were loads of families there on the Sunday that we went out, but it didn’t feel overcrowded or frenetic at any stage.

We got our lunch from the very nice Garden Cafe.  The Cafe itself is a small pretty round building, with all the food inside and all the seating and a barbeque outside..  The adults had a tasty Brochette of Kilruddery Lamb – a kind of shish kebab in a delicious brown roll with coriander, spices and tahini for €6.50.  It wasn’t a huge sandwich, but the ingredients were top-notch.
