Welcome to Dark Horse!
We are a completely plant-based Café and Farm Shop located in Bellurgan, Co. Louth, Ireland. Our mission is to create beautiful, nutritious and delicious plant-based food and to share our love of a plant-based lifestyle with everyone who visits us!
We are a family run business made up of Oisin, Zoe and baby Paige. <3
Oisin is our head chef and has spent over two decades in some of the worlds most impressive kitchens. He has worked in kitchens from London to Singapore, and trained with Michelin Star chefs during his career.
Zoe always dreamed of opening up a Café and spent years travelling and working on Organic farms, where she developed a love for self-sufficient living and plant-based cooking.
When our beautiful daughter, Paige, was born, our vision of an Organic, plant-based lifestyle was solidified and it has now become our mission to share our love of good food with others.
We started out life in a horse-box, where we installed our famous wood-fire oven and traveled around the country serving delicious pizzas. Eventually winning Best Street Food in Ireland in the Street Food Awards!
After our successes away from home, we decided to set up permanently on our land in Bellurgan. We renovated an old butchery that has been in Oisin's family for three generations into our main dining space, and also have an outdoor dining space in our Orchard.
We grow seasonal fruit and vegetables in our poly-tunnels and design menus around what produce is available to us. Where possible, we will aim for our food to be Organic, home-grown and always absolutely delicious.
We can't wait to see you!
Zoe, Oisin & Paige
