Practiced in the art of teaching cookery with over 20 years' frying, baking, and chopping experience, the prestigious kitchen at Glassdrumman Lodge now reveals its culinary secrets to the public through a selection of courses suited to a range of abilities. The chefs are well-versed in a variety of cookery styles from around the globe and many of their graduates have gone on to show off skills in restaurants elsewhere. The rural retreat is nestled in the foothills of the Mourne Mountains, boasting ten well-appointed rooms and sea views that also represent a constant flow of fresh seafood from Kilkeel to be used by the experts in fine dining menus.
After being greeted with home-made shortbread and a warming drink, students will go on to enjoy a four hour lesson, getting hands dirty throughout the process. An expert chef will demonstrate how to cook, and a maximum of eight people per class will allow for individual attention during the hands-on lesson. A range of five courses are tailored to various skill levels: back to basics for beginners, healthy living, seasonal cooking, and seafood classes for intermediate and advanced culinary creatives. Learners will also receive a folder containing all recipes for future delectation, and newly savvy kitchen maestros are awarded a certificate of completion at the end of the day. The three course lunch prepared during the lesson will be served with wine to provide a welcome break during the lesson, and those wishing to explore the scenic surroundings of Glassdrumman further can avail of discounted accommodation rates.
Although the cookery course has not yet been reviewed, Glassdrumman Lodge Hotel has won much praise from satisfied visitors, with TripAdvisors rating their stay at a glowing 4.5/5 stars. Although some visitors found room decor a little dated, reviews are on the whole very positive, and heap praise upon the standard of food and the accommodating, personable service.
We stayed two nights, and the welcome, ambience and food could not be faulted. This is a small country house, set between the sea and the mountains with great views of both. In the evening, it is a gourmet restaurant, with open fires in the library and drawing rooms, and an opportunity to meet other guests. Complimentary ameuse gueles, [sic] and a well chosen, keenly priced wine list make for a relaxing time. Breakfasts [are] extensive and cooked to order. The bedrooms are generously sized and well appointed, but our bathroom needed updating, which is all that kept this from being a five star experience. It is family run by a really talented family.

All the rooms are named after surrounding mountains and we found ours to be comfortable, very clean and homely with great views down to the sea… We went for the evening meal and it lived up to the rave reviews on this site. I went for the Rack of Lamb and my wife went for the Rump Steak both of which were delicious; Breakfast was equally tasty. The service was top notch - friendly & helpful. We'll definitely be back :)
