Fodor's Review

The magic formula of a genuine Irish welcome and immaculate food with a culinary flourish is what draws people to the Olde Post Inn, set in bucolic southern Ulster surroundings. A restored, stone, former post office in an elegantly landscaped garden, the restaurant has won a clutch of awards and, as a result, is often booked solid. Sea bass, steak, loin of rabbit, and Peking duck are main-course favorites and highlight regional ingredients. To wash it down, choose from a wine selection that will appeal to Europhiles: Valpolicella, Pouilly-Fuissé, Sancerre, or if you feel like a splurge, try the flamboyantly fruity Puligny Montrachet at a cool €85. Artwork by some top Irish artists decorates the redbrick stone walls. Staying overnight is strongly advised; six guest bedrooms, all in the original part of the postmaster's residence, have been modernized with fabrics in bright jewel colors alongside contemporary bathrooms and plasma TVs.
