Operation Transformation

Operation Transformation is BACK and we’re ALL getting involved to celebrate their 10th anniversary.

 

The hugely popular ‘Ireland Lights Up’ walking initiative returns in January along with the much-anticipated return of the show on January 8th which will run through to February 26th, which is in partnership with the GAA, Operation Transformation, and Get Ireland Walking

GAA clubs across Ireland will once again ensure ‘Ireland Lights Up’ by hosting community walking groups during the eight-week broadcast period of the hit RTÉ show. Palmerstown House has a long-standing relationship and sponsorship with St Pat’s GAA club who get heavily involved. The club support and push all those looking to get involved in Operation Transformation and we’re getting involved.

 

Over 270 clubs participated in Ireland Lights Up in 2019, with a total of 65,000 walkers getting out during the initiative. Let’s make this bigger and better than ever with everyone in Palmerstown getting behind this great community event. St Pats will host a weekly walk and we want to help and reward all of you taking part.

 

To Celebrate this fantastic event our Head Chef Beshel has created a weekly special that will have you running to the finish line. With fresh dishes like poached chicken Laksa with lemongrass and ginger.

 

Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook for exciting fresh recipe ideas plus photo shoots of what’s being prepped plus much more.

Let’s go Palmerstown!

Ribs & Wings Weekend at Palmerstown House

Palmerstown House hosted its first Ribs and Wings Weekend last week. The finger licking event launched on the 15th of November and ran through to Sunday 17th. The event proved to be a crowd pleaser having the Palmerstown House completely run out of every ribs and wings they had to offer.

With hot and sticky dishes to get some heat into you such as Mexican style chipotle ribs served with guacamole and corn salsa it wasn’t for those with a delicate pallet. For those who really wanted to take a walk on the dark side there was the hot devil chicken wings. Leaving you quenching for a beer and having it really hit the spot.

The event which no doubt will become an annual event was the talk of the town. One customer, Annette admitting “I went in Friday and it was so good had to go back Saturday and again Sunday”.

We’re excited to see what head Chef Beshel has up his sleeve next year!

In the meantime chicken wings are a staple on our menu so if you missed out be sure to try them between now and then.

Summer Grilling at Palmerstown House

Palmerstown House was embracing all things Summer from August 15th– 18th. Each year they host a Summer Grill menu which launched in 2018. This year’s menu oozed creativity and the dishes were rich with flavor. The menu consisted of fresh, summer-based ingredients, such as Grilled fillet of seabass served with potato, buckwheat, and heirloom tomatoes. Head Chef Beshel had thought of everyone, also having a more traditional dish for those who didn’t want to venture too far into the abyss.  The olive fed fillet of pork served with spiced sweet potato and wild mushroom pie offered a spicy alternative with a twist.

 

Great way to finish up your summer!

 

If you and your family or friends joined Palmerstown House for The Summer Grill, we would love to hear about your experience https://www.facebook.com/palmerstownhouse/
