Fresh from the Wild Atlantic Way, today’s catch is an original script seasoned with Ireland’s rich history. This site-responsive show is prepared by chef Jp McMahon and served alongside several Irish staples: brown soda bread, boiled potatoes and of course, religious tension.

Prepare your taste buds for a multisensory experience that explores the origins of food culture from every corner of the island. Indulge in the absurd and serious, paired perfectly with the visceral and violent.

Director Romana Testasecca thickens the sense of Irish kitsch, in a space abounding with religious iconography, a surreal spread of sliced pan and piles of potatoes.
