Dunvalanree is featured in the Good Food Guide as Chef-Proprietor Alyson Milstead's menus feature local seafood and farm produce. Everything is homemade, the menu changes each day and the results speak for themselves!!

Come to enjoy smoked mussels cooked in garlic with bacon lardons followed by scallops cooked in white wine and a smidgeon of chilli. Then there are desserts.. but that is another story: homemade ice-cream, Crème Brule or Passion Fruit cheesecake – declared the best cheesecake ever by many guests!
