Muckross Road, KILLARNEY, Co Kerry, ROI,
Guests can take a meal in the original dining room of this 19th-century manor house while enjoying views across parkland which dips down to the lake. Perhaps start with seared Castletownbere scallops, beautifully presented with black pudding, cauliflower and samphire. Follow on with braised feather blade beef with pan-seared sirloin along with celeriac cubes, pearl onions and fondant potato, complemented by a full-flavoured jus and potato gratin on the side. Interesting desserts might include choux pastry with blackberry curd, wild berry crème fraiche.
