Our Story

Kalbos is owner operated by Siobhan & Anthony In West Cork

"quality and sustainability is key"

At Kalbos, it’s all about the food.
We focus on its provenance, quality and sustainability but KEY is seasonality
whether it’s our own homegrown, fresh salad leaves or our potatoes and winter veg for our wholesome Irish Stew.

Our dishes bring together the best of Irish ingredients grown and produced on our own farm (under the watchful eye of Anthony) and our carefully chosen artisans dedicated to the integrity of their products; West cork meats from Walsh’s in Skibbereen and Caherbeg in Roscarbery, bacon from Gubeen and chicken from Shannonvale, to name a few.

"dedicated to the integrity of their products"

Working with the best

Working with the best West Cork has to offer we can ensure that we only use the freshest ingredients that are free-range, high-welfare, seasonal and of the best quality anywhere in Ireland.

"We took the reins on the quality and consistency of our ingredients"

locally, sourced fruit, herbs and vegetables

Years ago, having got the opportunity to lease an organic farm and coupled with our desire to know where our produce came from, we took the plunge and began running our own farm using natural farming principles.

We took the reins on the quality and consistency of our ingredients and moved into sharing the bounty we produced with our customers who were asking for locally, sourced fruit, herbs and vegetables. Today, we sell the best of our seasonal new potatoes, strawberries, courgettes, herbs and winter veg as well as our baked brownies and treats for you to take away.

Pride in West Cork Food

If you don’t fancy cooking yourselves, we have created recipes by the crew, under the careful tutelage of Siobhan, to bring you traditional fare, tried and tested, over the years that have become firm favourites with the locals and those who holiday in West Cork every year and come back to Kalbos again and again.
