Dining Options


Cookes Restaurant

The quality of our food is very important to us here at the County Arms Hotel. Cooke’s restaurant offers you a blend of mouth-wateringly good food and friendly, unfussy service. We focus on quality ingredients, expertly prepared by our team under Head Chef Jason Daly. Our award-winning food has been featured at Taste of Dublin & Taste of Christmas.

We try to feature as many local food producers as possible and Offaly is home to a vibrant food scene with numerous award-winning producers including Mossfield Organic Farm.

All dietary requirements are catered for, but please do contact us directly if you would like us to prepare specific foods in advance of your visit.

Our well-sourced wine list promotes great value with an extensive combination of classic and new world favourites. Our Restaurant team are happy to suggest wines to suit your palate. For special occasions, we keep a few very special Bordeaux wines in the cellar.


Bar 62

If the Kitchen is the heart of the House, then Bar 62 is the heart of the County Arms Hotel. This comfortable, newly designed Bar is a relaxed and cosy haven with an excellent selection of drinks and friendly bartenders.  Our wine by the glass selection offers the option of flexibility yet quality wines and champagne.  Music every weekend normally draws a vibrant local Birr crowd whose friendly banter and local knowledge mix well with our Hotel guests.

The 1809 foyer is your relaxed lounge, you’ll easily find a quiet corner or a seat at the fireplace, to finish your book, share a chat or step back from the buzz of the Bar.

Bar 62 is an ideal stop for Lunch during the week with an extensive Menu from 12.30 to 9:30 pm every day. On Sunday Lunch, we offer an alternative to the Restaurant upstairs and an informal option for all the family.
