"A true talent in Eddie Attwell has been bestowed on West Cork" (Kate Ryan)

Eccles Hotel is situated in lush West Cork and chef Eddie, a keen forager and grower of his own produce, uses this to create incredible culinary dishes. After joining the team at Eccles, Eddie immediately installed a polytunnel to grow fresh produce to use in his kitchen. He finds the best and local suppliers to deliver high quality food daily. Growing his own and sourcing fresh and local produce, Eddie ensures that any dish that passes through his kitchen is of the highest quality. 

“Eddie is a keenly seasonal chef, well known for his love of home grown, local and foraged foods and that sense of immediacy informs all of his menus – and ‘breakfast like a king’ could well be his motto.” (Georgina Campbell, February 2020)


With experience working in two Michelin starred restaurants, Eddie knows his way around a kitchen. He works hard to create dishes that will delight and wow guests of the hotel. Bringing a wealth of knowledge to Eccles, he is an innovative and inspiring chef.
