Dining at Delphi

FOOD & DINING EXPERIENCE

The food at Delphi Lodge is highly praised, with delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners that make full use of local seafood, salmon, lamb, game and other fresh produce from the area. Evening Dinner at Delphi Lodge is highly recommended.

It’s a very special experience, with guests gathering in our Drawing Room from 6.30pm where pre-dinner drinks and canapés are served in front of a cosy log fire. Then it’s into the Dining Room at 7.30pm for a wonderful six course meal, specially designed and prepared using the best quality, fresh and locally sourced ingredients.

Guests are seated together around our large antique dining table to exchange anecdotes about the day in the wonderful Delphi Lodge atmosphere, with coffee and chocolates later in the Drawing Room; log fires and good company – a perfect evening.

And there’s a great wine list, featuring over 200 fairly-priced wines. We are also offering great vegan, pescetarian and vegetarian dishes.

“The ultimate food experience has to be at Delphi Lodge in Co Mayo. Guests are encouraged to think of the Lodge more as a country houseparty. It features a cosy library with a roaring fire, fishing on the lake or river, and one big dining table where all guests sit down to eat together.”

Five Best Irish Country House

 “Delphi Lodge – In the 1830s the Marquis of Sligo built a sporting retreat in a beautiful location at the foot of Connacht’s highest mountains. The resulting Delphi Lodge is now a 13-bedroom retreat where guests enjoy a houseparty atmosphere with gourmet meals served every evening around an old oak dining table.”

More Information

Organic food at Delphi Lodge is produced according to organic farming principles which are committed to working in harmony with nature rather than against nature. Organic farming works within the natural confines of the farming eco-system to provide you with great tasting food!

In practice organic farming;

  • Avoids the use of chemical fertilisers and pesticides
  • Requires the highest standards of animal welfare
  • Does not permit the use of genetically modified organisms
  • Uses less fossil fuel energy per calorie of food produced
  • Protects our biodiversity by maintaining suitable habitats for plants, animals and wildlife.
Although a lot of traditional Irish recipes are quite meat-heavy, there are some great vegan and vegetarian ones as well, and some of the classics can also be veganized with a bit of creativity. We are offering great vegan, pescetarian and vegetarian dishes.
