About The Church


More than just good food

At The Church we believe our food should be a reflection of us. Every aspect of dining at The Church is inspired and shaped by the people, the landscape and the climate here in Donegal, on the edge of Europe.

At our fingertips, we have all the bounty of the wild salty Atlantic sea, herb-scattered outcrops, hedgerows heavy with fruit and loam soils loaded with juicy vegetables.

This deep appreciation for the gifts our local area has to offer is carried far beyond the plate.
Sustainability and biodiversity are intrinsic to what Rockhill is all about – we value and want to keep the best Irish traditions around food alive: wholesome; unprocessed; homegrown, home produced or locally produced where possible; true to the land (or dúiche in Irish) and the seasons.

We strive to ensure our precious environment is nurtured, protected and fortified; providing foraging for bees; installing over 100 bird houses and bat boxes and a giant bug wall, re-introducing native trees and birds and planting rare native fruit trees in the long untended Walled Garden.
