Fodor's Ireland 2014
The Olde Post Inn
The Olde Post Inn 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 south 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. Chef-owner Gearóid Lynch gives a dramatic modern twist to some Irish classics, including wild Irish venison with rösti potatoes, mallard, and woodcock. Sea bass, steak, loin of rabbit, or Peking duck are other main-course favorites, and ingredients highlight local and regional foods. To wash it down select from a Valpolicella, Pouilly-Fuissé, Sancerre, or if you feel like a splurge, try the flamboyantly fruity Puligny-Montrachet at a cool €85. Work by some top Irish artists such as Markey Robinson, James Bingham, Marie Carroll, and Sean Scully decorates the redbrick stone walls. To get here, take the N53 to Cloverhill from Cavan town. 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.
