Hartes of Kildare was opened in 2009 by Paul Lenehan & Ronan Kinsella who also own & operate The Dew Drop Inn in Kill Co Kildare and Ashtons Gastropub in Clonskeagh Dublin 6. With over 40 years experience in hospitality between them Ronan & Paul first met when they worked together as part of the pre opening team at the Millrace Hotel in Bunclody.
Full of passion and drive for the industry, in 2005 they made the leap and went in to business for themselves. 13 years on and theirs is a friendship and business partnership that became family when Ronan married Paul’s sister.
With 7 children between them family is firmly at the heart of this business. Today their passion for the industry is as strong as it was in 2005 and together with their dedicated team they are constantly working on new ideas such as expanding their own range of craft beers and their cookery school while ensuring that they offer their staff a rewarding working environment and their customers a memorable dining experience.
