The Black Pig

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

Some rooms capture the spirit of the place, and The Black Pig is one of those rooms. Eating in this elegant, bohemian space has become an integral part of a visit to Kinsale and, thanks to the astute management of Gavin and Siobhan, the ‘Pig hasn’t put a foot wrong since they opened four years ago. As you would expect from a couple who served their time in Ely, the wines are beyond good – there are 200 on the list, with 100 available by the glass – and they carefully source and select their foods to match these brilliant bottles. The dishes are small and light – leek and mushroom risotto; crab ravioli; farmhouse cheese platter; scallops with black pudding; chilli prawns – and eating through an assortment of tastes with an assortment of wines is one of the sublime Kinsale experiences.
