John is passionate about the quality of his ingredients and sources a range of organic foods from local producers. John cooks every day in the restaurant and all breads and desserts are home-baked on the premises. Herbs are supplied from their own kitchen garden.

Breakfast at Sheedy's offers a comprehensive menu. Guests may enjoy organic apple juice, homemade organic fruit compote with Irish yogurt, porridge with Irish whiskey or Baileys, local Burren smoked salmon with organic eggs, or more. All breads, jams and marmalade are made by John.

The Burren is great walking country and the hotel can provide guests with walking sticks and maps of local walks. Many guests will head out after a home-cooked breakfast, taking a packed lunch with them, and may be out all day walking on the Green Roads. Guests can then relax over dinner upon their return, and perhaps end the evening with a whiskey from the well-stocked bar. The Cliffs of Moher and Burren Geopark are a 10 minute drive from Lisdoonvarna, and boats go to the Aran Islands from Doolin on each day during the Season. Guests may enjoy the beaches at Lahinch and Fanore – both of which are very popular with surfers. Lisdoonvarna is a 45 minute drive from Shannon Airport.
