John and Francis Brennan
The owners of Burtown House in Athy are gearing up for a visit from well known hoteliers the Brennan Brothers next Monday, which will be filmed for the popular TV show, At Your Service.
Owners James and Joanna Farrell who are expanding their business with the opening the Green Barn restaurant will welcome John and Francis on Monday, October 10.
The Fennells face a huge learning curve as they expand their catering operation and luckily the Brennan brothers will be on hand to help.
They are moving from a small gallery café that caters for 20, to a large 80 seater restaurant business. As well as building the Green Barn from scratch, the Fennells also must develop their organic kitchen garden which will serve the new restaurant.
The Barn is based on a Scandinavian design, with an emphasis on rustic textures and woods. It will house a gallery and gift shop selling crafts and products from local food producers, as well as photography and artwork. The show will be aired next January on RTE one, Sunday night at 8.30pm.
