Kilshanny House

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

Kilshanny House is everyone's idealised version of the Irish country pub, a place where the courtesy and welcome are real and true, where everything in the pretty room gleams, where the cooking is smart and introduces you to the best local artisan ingredients. You step in the door, take a look, and you've found a little bit of heaven,
Mary Butler and Aidan Galvin run the show, and they have brought a marvellous pair of sensibilities to the craft of running a County Clare landmark. If you thought rural pubs inevitably offered the patina of age and nicotine, step into Kilshanny and see what those sensibilities can achieve: the rooms are bright and Instagram-ready, pretty as a picture.
And the cooking completes the picture of a destination where everything has been carefully considered. A bowl of tomato and celeriac soup with Aidan’s brown bread would restore any hungry traveller, but it’s just the beginning of the treats: Burren smoked salmon gateaux with honey and mustard dressing; corn-fed chicken with seasonal leaves; St Tola goat’s cheese with beetroot and blackcurrant purée, and there are lovely puddings.
Kilshanny House is one of those extraordinary Burren destinations, where dynamic people have fashioned cutting-edge ventures, in idyllic destinations. Do not miss it.
