Our Story

About Us.

We love quality, local, seasonal produce...

Since its opening in October 2019, The Old Bank has embraced a journey of culinary evolution, solidifying its place as a cherished dining spot in the region. Shifting our focus to highlight modern Irish cuisine, we now proudly present The Bistro as our sole dining offering, located on both the ground and first floors. This transition reflects our commitment to accessibility and enjoyment for all, featuring a menu rich with local produce and selections from our farm, Al Eile.

Nestled within the iconic 19th-century Bridge House and overlooking the scenic Dungarvan Harbour in Co. Waterford, Ireland, The Bistro at The Old Bank is the quintessence of casual elegance. Our dining areas, spread across two floors, are designed with a mix of understated sophistication and comfort, providing the ideal setting for any dining occasion. From street-level views that capture the harbor’s beauty to the inviting atmosphere that caters to families, couples, and groups alike, The Bistro stands as a beacon of relaxed, family-friendly dining.

Whether you’re seeking a leisurely lunch or a casual evening meal, The Bistro’s ambiance is perfectly suited for memorable moments over delicious food, making every visit a special one.

The Farm​

In 2020, we developed a plot of land less than 5km from The Old Bank into our restaurant farm.

The benefits to cultivating our own ingredients are plentiful – cooking with produce that has been harvested a few hours prior is a pleasure, and a pleasure to eat. What’s more, having our own farm reduces our carbon footprint and enriches the environment through the use of chemical free methods.

 

In the coming months we plan to expand the farm by adding rare breed pigs and Dexter cattle, in a push to becoming even more sustainable.

Our story is in its opening chapter, and we look forward to the exciting times ahead.
