Georgina O’Sullivan is one of Ireland’s finest chefs, and her cooking achieves a dual satisfaction: it is both wonderfully rustic, and wonderfully refined. She knows her ingredients in the deepest, most profound way, and she cooks to please people, not to show off. Her other secret is attention to detail, helped by the sort of painstaking effort that means, for example, that the mashed potato in the Ballymore Inn is the best mash you can eat, and has been the best mash you can eat for the last 20 years. With ingredients from the polytunnel out behind the Back Bar, the dishes are full fathom five in flavour. Add in one of the nicest dining rooms, and excellent drinks collated by Barry O’Sullivan, and you have one of the best destinations for eating and drinking in Ireland.
