Heir Island is famous for a handful of reasons, and food is definitely one of them. At Roaring Water Lodge we hope to continue on in the great tradition of Heir Island and West Cork cuisine, we provide an array of options in the lodge or in our sister restaurant Pizzheiria. Eat Heir Island style


The Roaring Water Lodge breakfast experience is served from 7a.m.to 10a.m. Our full & hearty traditional Irish breakfast incorporates the best West Cork gourmet has to offer. Guests can add on breakfast during the stay

For those looking for a lighter alternative, we have a range of healthy low-fat, low-carb offerings for your perusal.


At RWL we specialise in group trips, we have been hosting retreats for over 10 years on Heir Island and pride ourselves on fully sustainable & vegetarian group packages


Pizzheiria is our very own wood fired oven pizzeria balancing Italian cuisine and Irish produce to provide a truly unique dining experience.


The Island Cottage Restaurant on Heir Island has been in operation for over 30 years with John & Ellmary, advanced booking is essential but cancellations can always open up a spot if our last minute guests are lucky!

West Cork is officially Ireland’s food and produce capital, the island is in a unique position, in that 2 restaurants were awarded Michelin stars in 2019 and are only 10 minutes boat in either direction on the island. The Mews in Baltimore and The Chestnut Tree Restaurant in Ballydehob are fine dining at their best.

Baltimore, Sherkin and Schull all have amazing pubs and restaurants which we are happy to recommend based on our guest’s personal preferences.
