The Lake Hotel

On the Shore, Muckross Road, KILLARNEY, Co Kerry, ROI,

2 rosettes

On the shore of Killarney's lower lake, Lough Lein, the hotel has been in the Huggard family for over a century. Although the original house is much extended since 1820, Castlelough Restaurant retains its Georgian high ceilings, while its wide windows reveal one of those splendid views in which Ireland specialises. Expect local placenames on the menu, as in Dingle Bay crab starter with apple and ginger mayonnaise, mango salsa, yogurt and cardamom purée. Try caramelised scallops with Anascaul pudding, squash purée, chorizo oil and shallot foam as a main course. Red wine-poached pear, citrus sorbet, Muscovado jelly and honeycomb tuile is a typical dessert.
