Lime Tree Review

An open fire, stone walls, and a minstrel's gallery on a large balcony above the main room lend considerable character to this restaurant. Built in 1823 as a schoolhouse, it is located in its own leafy gardens at the top of town near the Park Hotel (where many of its staff trained). Tables are set with Irish linen napery, and in the long summer evenings light streams in from tall windows. Try one of the imaginative vegetarian options, such as hummus and blue cheese strudel, or go for roast loin of Kerry lamb with a red onion and sun-dried tomato tarte tatin. Leave room for the blackberry and pear fruit crumble. Advance booking is advisable.
