Number One Pery Square

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

You have really got to warm to a dinner menu, in a town with a ham-related history like Limerick’s, that offers “No.1 Pigtown Choucroute”, as a main course, either for one person or for a couple to share.
But No.1 Pigtown is exactly what you will get in Sash, the first-floor restaurant of Patricia Robert’s vital hotel in the centre of Limerick. The choucroute is typical of the unstuffy, funky spirit of Pery Square, which is grand but welcoming, and where everything is well-chosen, from the foods to the wines to the design details of the public rooms, the spa and the bedrooms. And just to drive home their ham-history, there is also a crubeen terrine, served with sea salt crostini and apricot chutney, and even ham hock with fresh mussels. But it’s not all porcine: the shallot tarte satin is a brilliant dish, and the kitchen shows confidence right through the menu. But it’s especially delightful to see a smart hotel pay tribute to the city’s history in such a clever, witty and creative way, a gesture typical of the effort made in every aspect of 1 Pery Square.
