The Belle Isle Cookery School in Northern Ireland is well rated, although I haven’t been there.

Another school worth considering is The Tannery Cookery School. Paul Flynn, the proprietor/head chef there is extremely accomplished (he worked as head chef with Nico Ladenis at Chez Nico in London), and he is very involved in the cookery school, so you get the benefit of his experience. He is also an exceptionally nice guy.

I guess I'm a bit confused, because I thought Ballymaloe was in Cork in the south, not Northern Ireland. Another place not too far away from Cork to look into is Dunbrody House Cookery School in Wexford (actually closer to Waterford). I stayed there last summer and can't vouch for the quality of the school, but the hotel and restaurant were terrific.

you're correct, rickster. i should have been more clear. she's touring ireland, and is hoping to take a class or two at ballymaloe in southern ireland. she's looking to find a place to take classes in northern ireland, as well. sorry for the confusion!

your suggestion looks great, and i'll pass it along. thanks!
