Dunmore East, Waterford

Dining & Takeaway


The Lemon Tree Catering was founded in 2003 by chef/proprietor Joan Boland.

The Seafood Restaurant was added in July 2008 and has become a popular destination for great local food with a large emphasis on seafood and shellfish from our local waters.

Joan has over 33 years experience in the hospitality industry having grown up in The Candelight Hotel which was a well renowned hotel and restaurant operated by her parents Charlie and Antoinette Boland. Joan qualified from the Ballymaloe Cookery School and went on to head the kitchens of the Candelight.

Joan is inspired by the local producers in the Dunmore East and Waterford area and likes to support them by using local produce.
