MACREDDIN, Co Wicklow, Y14 A362, ROI,
This luxurious country-house hotel is the heart of purpose-built Macreddin Village. The Strawberry Tree is its blue-riband dinner option, an opulent setting spreading through three grand rooms with mirrored ceilings reflecting twinkling chandeliers and gilt-framed mirrors on midnight-blue walls. Being Ireland's first certified organic restaurant, provenance of seasonal ingredients is king, with herbs and soft fruit grown in the Village's walled garden. The kitchen brings this peerless produce together confidently in dishes such as home smoked salmon, cucumber, pickled wild samphire, crispy duck yolk and smoked chilli aļoli followed by seared wild sika loin, red cabbage, pear, vanilla Jus. To finish, perhaps an organic chocolate plate.
