Classical Irish cooking in an ancestral family hotel

Private dining
Wines by the glass
Wheelchair access

Barely half an hour from the Dun Laoghaire ferry, Ireland's oldest coaching inn sits in riotously colourful gardens, its dining room a vision of crisp linen, mahogany and fine living. Expect daily-changing menus of classically informed Irish cooking, starting with spanking-fresh crab tian in dill mayonnaise, and progressing via an intermediate course (perhaps leek and potato soup or lime and ginger sorbet) to the likes of crisply roasted breast and leg of duckling with blueberry sauce and pommes purée. Strawberry pannacotta to finish comes in a cocktail glass, lifted with a portion of balsamic-marinated strawberries, or you might be tempted by a selection of Ireland's latest artisan cheeses.
