Fodor's Review

An open fire, stone walls, and a minstrel's gallery above the main room lend considerable character to this restaurant. Built in 1823 as a schoolhouse, it is located in its own leafy gardens 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 chef patron's imaginative vegetarian options, such as goat's cheese croquettes with beetroot chutney, or roast rack of Kerry lamb, with warm crepes with vanilla ice cream and butterscotch sauce to finish. Reservations are advisable.
