We were delighted to welcome “An Taoiseach”, Mr. Bertie Ahern to officially cut the Purple Ribbon at the newly renovated Ardenode Country House Hotel yesterday, where he was presented with a wax jacket and hat along with a walking stick ‘to beat the opposition with’ as a gift from the Kildare Countryside.

The Hotel was bought by the Fitzers Catering group last July and they have just completed a €2million refurbishment programme, upgrading all areas of the Hotel turning it into the most wonderful “Country House Hotel”.

Set on 5 Acres of mature landscaped gardens, combining that with Fitzers reputation for food, style, service and attention to detail, has transformed the Hotel into a “bijoux type” of hotel.

Our contempory restaurant The Stud Bar and Grill is a stunning feature of the Hotel. It is steadily building a clientele who are talking about our exciting menu and excellent wine list in exquisite surroundings, offering good value for money.

The Taoiseach is no stranger to Fitzers Catering. He has been a recipient of their hospitality for many years, most recently last Sunday at the magnificent Croke Park Stadium where Fitzers Catering run the entire food and beverage operation.
