Clenaghans Restaurant, Craigavon, Co Down

When it comes to food, we really are lucky here in Ireland. A tiny island has lots of benefits, ease of access to ingredients is most certainly one. From our grass fed beef and world famous dairy industry……………who doesn’t love Irish butter.

The emerald isle , being surrounded by the Atlantic means we’re totally spoilt with seafood. That combined with an Irish passion for food, leads to pretty spectacular cuisine.

While Kinsale in Co. Cork is seen as the foodies capital, a colorful seaside town packed full of bars and restaurants, Dublin is home to most Michelin Star restaurants. Below we give a look at some of the Irish Times best of the best when it comes to Irish food. When booking your luxury tour of Ireland, we of course carefully consider restaurant choices for you.

Best Emerging Irish Cuisine.

The Irish Times have recently compiled a list of their top dining and hospitality choices, with best emerging Irish cuisine restaurants really sparking our interest. We loved that this was its very own category. What a great way for Irish Chefs, using Irish ingredients to stay true to Irish food roots and showcase the best of what Ireland has to offer. Top of the list came for each province of Ireland and Dublin central were

  • Leinster The Heritage, Killenard, Portarlington, Co Laois
  • Ulster Clenaghans Restaurant, Craigavon, Co Down
  • Munster Old Couch Café, Waterford City
  • Connaught Fish And Bean, Rosses Point, Co Sligo
  • Dublin Margadh Food & Wine, Howth, Dublin 13

While we plan your activities and your touring, we also books all meals if you so wish. These restaurants we really feel are worth adding to your wish list.
