IRELAND: Monday 5th February 2024. The Michelin Guide to Great Britain & Ireland this evening unveiled its newest awards including a Michelin Star for The Bishop’s Buttery located at the five-star Cashel Palace Hotel, in Co. Tipperary.

“We are really delighted with today’s news. Gaining a Michelin Star so soon after opening is a fantastic achievement. It has always been my hope to receive the Star and now, along with Stefan and the team, we have achieved it. I honestly couldn’t be any happier. This is an important recognition of our hard work and is wonderful for team morale, reflecting our ambitions front and back of house.”

A member of the Cashel Palace Hotel opening team, Stephen was formerly Head Chef of the Michelin-starred restaurant at The Cliff House Hotel in Waterford, further enhancing his skills thereafter at the Michelin three-starred Restaurant De Librije in Holland.

Head Chef Stefan McEnteer previously honed his skills under the mentorship of renowned Irish chefs Neven Maguire and Derry Clarke.
