Gourmands come in droves to the ruby-red dining room at Dunbrody House, where master celebrity-chef Kevin Dundon serves up foie gras with toasted brioche and balsamic-marinated strawberries, suckling pig with artichoke, girolles, and pearl onion, and a chocolate "selection of indulgences." The weekend eight-course tasting menu is a parade of culinary delights. If you're a hands-on type, you can learn how to cook the Harvest Room's delights yourself; Dundon runs a cooking school on weekends. After a dinner that is likely to be memorable sip-to-sup, sit back with a goblet of Irish Mist in hand and catch a dramatic sunset fading over the Hook Peninsula. Sunday lunch here is the stuff of legend.
