Restaurant
“Sha-Roe is quite simply a treasure of gastronomy, nestled in the picturesque village of Clonegal, Co. Carlow. The multi-award winning bistro continues to wow visitors with its simple and elegant approach to food. Henry Stone and his Swiss wife, Stephanie Barrillier met while working in Marlfield House in Gorey, where Henry’s reputation as head chef was a major draw. In 2002 Henry was awarded a 3 AA Rosette whilst working there. While looking for a venue for their new restaurant idea, the newly-married couple spotted the 18th Century house in Clonegal in January 2005. They spent the summer of that year renovating it into Sha-Roe Bistro, which opened in September. In 2007 they won The Georgina Campbell ‘Best Newcomer of the Year’. The award was based on the amazing food & wine experience, Stephanie’s front of house charm, as well as the immaculate setting of the beautifully restored restaurant.”
