Owner Aileen d'Arcy named her restaurant, on the ground floor of a former bank, after her grandfather, the Arctic explorer Tom Crean. You can learn his story while browsing the menu, which is dominated by local produce. Top bets include Sneem black pudding with apple and tomato chutney, baked in filo pastry, and local duck breast, pan-fried and served with roasted root vegetables and Puy lentils. Known for her warm welcome, Aileen learned her trade at Kenmare's famed Park
Hotel, and shares the chef duties with her two sons. The main room is warmed by a large turf fire and has fully upholstered leather chairs.
