Sean Heads Liss Ard Kitchen

Liss Ard Estate has appointed Sean Doyle as the estate’s new Head Chef. 

Originally from Killarney, Sean began his career in 2006 and quickly began working in the Park Hotel in Kenmare, the Merrion Hotel in Dublin and joining as Chef de Partie at two-Michelin star Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud in 2009, soon promoted to Junior Sous Chef. Sean then decided to move overseas to further his skills in Norway, Sweden and London.

Returning to Ireland, Sean joined the team at the Michelin-starred L’Ecrivain as Sous Chef and was promoted to Head Chef in 2018. 

Impressed with Liss Ard Estate’s ethos of nurturing new and upcoming chefs, working with local producers and using produce straight from the 163-acre estate, Sean joined the team in February of this year. 

When not in the kitchen, Sean enjoys exploring his new surroundings in West Cork, usually by bike.
