Just visited the hotel. Food was excellent. The menu says it is Irish produce with French style and that's exactly what they do. Happy to let you go off menu and very guest focused. Great wine list.

There is only one menu with just 4 or 5 choices for each course. This is the menu for both guests and those who are only dining there.

Description
The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
