Some of the best places to eat and stay in Ireland are found in locations just a little off the major routes that lead to our coastal cities. But stop! There are places here that are destinations in and of themselves.
Pat and Una Weir’s classy Weir’s Bar & Restaurant, Multyfarnham is just north of Mullingar, and is the heart of little Multyfarnham, whilst Chris and Helen Kelly’s beautiful farm and country house, Lough Bishop House, Collinstown, is also north of Mullingar, near to Collinstown.
These are two gems of the Midlands: distinctive; original; surprising and, thereby, typical of the quiet surprises you will find in Westmeath. So head to the heartland.
