Kilronan certainly looks like an authentic medieval castle, complete with crenallated turret, but it actually dates from the early 19th century. Named after the first president of Ireland, its Douglas Hyde Restaurant majors on local fresh and seasonal produce, with all beef products 100% Irish and traceable. A starter of breast of Wicklow wood pigeon comes with raisins and pickled vegetables, while for main course, Joe Campbell’s Angus beef is served with Jerusalem artichoke, Hispi cabbage and oxtail jus. Dessert could consist of an elaborate banoffee soufflé with Valrhona chocolate sauce and banana ice cream, or caramel baklava with lemon gel and pistachio gelato.
