A raciones bar and music venue, in an old deconsecrated Church of Ireland, in Killorglin?
Only in Kerry. They do things differently here in the Kingdom, and Cliodhna Foley has always been a woman to do things her own way.
Ms Foley’s inspired adventure is so off the wall that it takes your breath away. You can even have your wedding reception here. But, even if you haven’t popped the question, the foods and wines are reason to come here, and return here – bacon and egg bechamel croquettes; suckling pig; sausage with apple marmalade; skewer of pork with Moorish spices; filo parcels stuffed with spiced ratatouille. Raciones are dishes that are rather more generous than tapas, and so they are meant for sharing. And if you have yet to discover the magical world that is sherry, then now is your chance, because the sherries Cliodhna serves are magnificent creations, and their dry, ethereal tones mesh magnificently with this lovely food. So, share some raciones with someone you love, sip some sherry, and you just might find yourself proposing marriage, and coming back to Sol Y Sombra for the big day itself.
