This luxurious country house hotel is the heart of purpose-built Macreddin Village. The Strawberry Tree is its top-end dinner option, a romantic setting with mirrored ceilings, twinkling chandeliers, and gilt-framed mirrors on midnight-blue walls. Being Ireland's first certified organic restaurant, provenance of ingredients is key, so if it's not wild or foraged, it's sourced from certified organic producers or grown in the walled garden. The kitchen brings this superb produce together creatively in dishes such as wood pigeon with smoked beetroot and pearl barley, followed by turbot with baby gem, cockles and wild woodruff cream. To finish, perhaps sloe fondant with bilberries and honeycomb ice cream.
