Keith Boyle Announced As Executive Chef Of Kilkenny’s Mountain View

Family-run mountain view is home to a multi-award winning wedding venue, celebrated restaurant,  weekly market & luxury glamping village 

Set on 120 acres of Kilkenny countryside, Ballyhale’s family-run Mountain View is delighted to announce the appointment of Keith Boyle as executive chef of the multi award-winning estate. Previously crowned best chef in Leinster and Munster at the Irish Restaurant Awards, executive chef Keith Boyle is joining as culinary lead of Mountain View’s weddings and events including hosting a much-anticipated series of pop up dining events across the year with the first announced as ‘Dinner with the MasterChefs’ on Saturday May 4th as part of the inaugural Foodie Fest. In addition, Boyle will develop the estate’s kitchen garden,  will oversee a zero waste street food truck named ‘LOADED’ as part of their weekly Sunday Market and will be launching a new menu later in the year for The Greenhouse Restaurant.

Keith Boyle, previously of Kilkenny’s renowned Michelin recommended ‘Restaurant Lady Anne’, fine dining ‘Keith Boyle at The Bridge House’ and Waterford’s ‘The Bay Tree Bistro’, comments on joining the team at Mountain View “I am delighted to join Bee, Michael and all the team at Mountain View as their new executive chef.  After our initial meeting it was great to meet owners who have great pride, passion and a vision for their business. As we move into the wedding and market season at Mountain View I am very excited to work on new concepts with the team, new ideas and flavours for the food truck and exciting new dishes for the market kitchen in the summer. The newly erected polytunnel just outside the kitchen door is also something I have always had a passion for. Growing our own produce for our food outlets will bring exciting new flavours with zero food miles.”

Chef Keith Boyle is a welcome addition in the next chapter of Mountain View’s continuing success. Commenting on the growth of the family-run estate, Mountain View co-owner and co-founder Bee O’Grady says “At Mountain View, we are a family. Originally my parent’s farm, it is wonderful to see how we have transformed our 120 acres of rural beauty into one of Ireland’s most unique wedding and events venues, a boutique luxury glamping village, The Greenhouse restaurant with its spectacular panoramic views, the South East’s largest weekly farmers market and now our first festival Foodie Fest which is announced for May bank holiday weekend.”
