Our Team
Our head chef Conor O’Connor has a special connection to The Half Door, having grown up here under the tenure of his parents, the previous proprietors. Right here, in The Half Door restaurant, is where Conor’s adoration of all things culinary first began. Immersed in the industry for as long as he can remember, Conor spent his formative years observing his parents’ oeuvre. Conor later completed a degree in Culinary Arts, going on to develop his vocation, working in various culinary settings throughout Ireland and further afield.
Conor’s partner, and our front of house manager first began her career within hospitality while at secondary school here in Co. Kerry. Later relocating to Manchester, where she studied sociology at the University of Salford, Eileen continued to work within the industry. Securing herself employment at some of Manchester’s most notable and exclusive dining spots, Eileen’s zeal for the bustling restaurant scene fortified.
