Ballymaloe Cookery School and Gardens
Hands-on is the watchword at this school, which offers a range of intensive classes from a 12-week certificate course to short courses on a variety of culinary topics. There are also half-day cooking demonstration courses and afternoon demonstrations almost every weekday afternoon. The gardens date back to the 19th century and have been carefully restored. A formal herb garden, a Celtic maze and a pond garden will delight visitors outside the kitchen. Check the website for half day and one day classes.
