Set against a backdrop of the Cork and Kerry Mountains, with stunning views over Kenmare Bay, this landmark Victorian hotel dates from 1897. Top-notch ingredients sourced from the surrounding area dominate the menu, starting with attractively presented Kenmare Bay scallops teamed with pork cheek croquette and spiced carrot. Main course might bring a super-fresh fillet of halibut accompanied by roasted cauliflower, brown shrimps, bulgar wheat, brown butter and a sweet and fruity caper and raisin puree. A well-flavoured dessert of 'Kir Royale' blackcurrant mousse and champagne sorbet is one satisfying way to end a meal. A carefully chosen and comprehensive wine list offers some notable bottles at prices to match.
