The Granville Hotel is one of Ireland’s most illustrious hotels, and dating back to the early 1700s, has played a prominent role in Waterford city’s rich, social and political history.
Proud Waterford people Liam and Ann Cusack bought The Granville in 1979 and immediately set about restoring it to is former, gracious grandeur, combining modern comforts with an old world charm and elegance. They built on a tradition that is still going strong today with the Cusack second family generation – Fiona, Jackie and Sandra who continue to uphold the Granville traditions of comfort, service and hospitality.
When it comes to Taste Waterford, The Granville Hotel is in the unique position of working with so many of our fine producers such as Walsh’s Bakehouse, Metalman Brewery, Dungarvan Brewing, Blackwater Distillery, Flahavans and many more, whilst also being award winning producers themselves.
General Manager of the Granville, Richard Hurley is extremely proud of the hotel’s ‘uniquely local’ offering.
“One of the most important words for us in the Granville is collaboration,” Richard said. “The process that goes into food production in Waterford is such an emotive and passionate one and we feel quite privileged to be able to pass that on to visitors who come here from all over the world. We are so proud of the food and drink that’s produced in Waterford and we take pride in showing it off to the world.”
If Food the Waterford Way could have a HQ, it would undoubtedly be The Granville Hotel. Their award winning Charles Bianconi Restaurant showcases local food on a daily basis, while the Thomas Francis Meagher Bar does the same with our local beers, ciders, whiskeys and gins.
They also take pride in offering a hearty and unique breakfast experience where you can enjoy locally grown and milled Flahavan’s porridge, indulge in freshly baked breads and scones topped with their own gold medal award-winning jam along with a cooked to order hot breakfast.
