Fodor's Expert Review O'Connells in Donnybrook

$$ Georgian Dublin Irish

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

This cozy, welcoming eatery in the heart of Donnybrook village is proud of its Slow Food ethos. It show cases fresh Irish produce, focusing on locally produced meats and game that can be traced to their source (in many cases, an individual farm). Altogether you have the makings of a feast that is deliciously, quintessentially Irish. The flat-cap mushrooms à la creme with Kelly's of Newport black pudding is a popular starter, with the whole roast Skeaghanore duck a great main for two people. Desserts continue the homegrown theme, including a warm chocolate brownie with Gathabawn vanilla ice cream. The cheese board is a "who's who" of Irish farmhouse cheeses, including the Ferguson family's tangy Gubbeen.
