A boutique hotel with bags of contemporary swagger, The Twelve is in a coastal area a short distance from the town centre. There's a lot going on: a cool bar, a bakery selling artisan breads and cakes, and a pizza place, but the main dining action takes place in the Upstairs restaurant, which is focused on seasonal regional produce, kicking off perhaps with garden pea and wild garlic risotto. Mains deliver appealing bang-on flavours with a contemporary flourish - try pork belly and scallops with saffron-braised potato and puréed apple. Finish with rhubarb and gingerbread crumble and rhubarb ripple ice cream, or Irish cheeses.
