The Black Pig

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

It might be tucked away up the hill from the centre of Kinsale, but on any given night The Black Pig feels like the centre of the culinary action in town. Gavin and Michelle orchestrate this atmospheric room with professional aplomb, and the feeling of being expertly looked after and attended to is one of the reason why the ’Pig is such a runaway success, and many people’s first choice in Kinsale. Start with Crosshaven oysters, or West Cork shrimp with chilli oil, then get stuck into pitch-perfect risotto with Gubbeen chorizo and peas, a bowl of sheer unctuousness punctuated with the pop of sweet peas. The wine service couldn’t be better, so put yourself in their expert hands and the evening will breeze by in a procession of great glasses.
