Tinakilly Country House

RATHNEW, Co Wicklow, ROI,

2 rosettes

A distinguished Italianate Victorian mansion is the diverting setting for the modernised country-house cooking on offer. The timing and seasoning of dishes does them justice, as for an opening pairing of scallops and the famous Clonakilty black pudding from County Cork, with butternut purée and pea shoots. Mains offer fine local meats such as herb-crusted Wicklow lamb rack in a provençal medium of chargrilled ratatouille veg and tomato fondue, or freshest fish such as Parma ham-wrapped cod with braised fennel, baby leeks and champ. A tarte Tatin variant made with pineapple is a success, the triumph ratified by its accompanying unabashedly boozy rum and raisin ice cream.
