Catering providers Brambles have been appointed as the operator of the Cliffs View Café at one of Ireland’s most popular tourist attractions.

Irish family owned and operated Brambles secured the ten year lease worth €2.35m by beating off competition from four other firms to run the Cliffs of Moher based café which is situated on the first floor of the Clare County Council owned Visitor Centre and seats 140.

Brambles employs more than 300 people in its catering operation, Bistro Restaurant and 27 cafés at locations such as the National Gallery of Ireland, Kilmainham Gaol, Dundrum Town Centre and Céide Fields in County Mayo. Run by husband and wife, Ciarán and Maeve Reid, the Dublin company replaces the Council owned Cliffs of Moher Visitor Centre Ltd as operators of the eatery.

During peak season, the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience has 110 employees with a staff of 50 in tenant companies on the site.

Director of the Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience, Geraldine Enright was confident visitors would now “enjoy a fantastic dining experience overlooking the cliffs.” She continued, “We particularly welcome the operator’s farm to fork ethos through its use of Irish products whenever possible.  Local suppliers include Celtic Salads, Burren Smokehouse Salmon and St. Tola’s Goats Cheese with the company seeking to explore other local opportunities as it develops a menu incorporating a strong Clare influence.”
