Our mission is to welcome, to invite people to ‘come on in’ and try something they’ve never done before. Maybe that’s wild swimming in Ballymorran Bay, or paddle boarding to one of the islands. Maybe that’s baking your own soda or potato bread the same way your great grandmother did. Maybe it’s just having a bite to eat by the fire or staying a night or two in Horseshoe Cottage. From our 17th Century thatched cottage, you’re always welcome. Come on in.

Where we are is the luckiest place in the world. The contrast of the rugged, unrelenting beauty of the landscape on our doorstep, with the comfort and warmth of our traditional Irish kitchen full of stories and flavours is what makes life here so unique. Just a glance out the window at Ballymorran Bay is all we need at the end of a long day. Because even when it’s lashing, even when it’s freezing, our part of the shoreline around Strangford Lough is so untouched by the pressures of the modern world that time escapes us completely.

Taste the tradition - With a handful of simple ingredients, and the knowledge of generations past, Tracey will show you how to bake on a griddle. Then sit by the fire and savour your hard work with some homemade butter and jam.

Explore the shore - Swim, paddleboard, explore the areas in and around Ballymoran Bay with Tracey’s husband Joe. Under his instruction, immerse yourself in the calm waters, find your balance on a paddle board and feel the elation of taking the plunge into a new chapter of your life.

Groups - the more the merrier - An experience shared, is an experience remembered. Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen can create bespoke experiences for larger groups of people. We can take you on a hosted coach tour of the best food and drinks in this area. Just give us a call to find out what’s possible.

Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen is dedicated to sustainability. Every ingredient in our Traditional Irish Breadmaking is sourced locally. Ingredients from other experiences even coming from our own garden.
