A Michelin Star-trained Executive Chef with more than 25 years of experience, Chef Declan creates thoughtful, delicious dishes that hit you in the mouth with bold and endless depths of flavor.
His skill in refining recipes based on his vast food knowledge (and unerring ability to select, source & combine the finest ingredients) mean every dish tells a story — sure, the language may be peppered with a few bombs, or even a little salty, but every dish is perfectly seasoned.
From Hell's Kitchen to the The Food Network (Guy's Grocery Games, SuperChef, Beat Bobby Flay) to major network and local TV appearances, Chef Declan brings authenticity, bold flavors — and his big personality — to shows around the globe. A top-three finalist on Season 19 of Hell's Kitchen, you can catch Declan going through Hell on demand — or airing currently in Ireland!
Add "entrepreneur" to Declan's list of many interests and roles. This year, he launched Horgans, LLC, an international food & beverage marketing and distribution company that represents such brands as Shenanigans Irish Liqueur, Hasset's Crackers and Shortbread, Mulryan's Natural Juices, and Xcite, a nootropic Energy Drink.

When it comes to launching new concepts, large or small, Chef Declan is instrumental in menu and recipe development, professional kitchen design/flow, staffing and more. He brings the same expertise and dedication to private events. From five star hotel events to private gatherings; from corporate catering to special occasions; Chef Declan helps works to make your dream real, fun, and over-the-top outstanding.
