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

Hugo’s Restaurant, on Merrion Row, is a beautiful room, and it expresses the restaurantness of a restaurant – the welcome; the lighting; the uniforms; the attention to detail. By doing so, it makes you feel incredibly comfortable. Walk in the door, and you relax immediately. But comfort isn’t all Hugo’s offers. Owner Gina Murphy, and chef Maggie Roche, are two exemplary talents. Ms Murphy could run the country single-handedly, and do a good job while she was at it. Ms Roche shares Ms Murphy’s devotion to detail, and cooks the right food in the right room. Whilst Hugo’s is an homage to the classical idea of a restaurant, Ms Roche makes every dish feels modern, contemporary and Irish. Hugo’s offers marvellous, comforting food in a marvellous, comforting city restaurant.
