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

On July 7th 2019, L’Ecrivain Restaurant will celebrate 30 years of service to the people of Dublin. Those three decades have seen Derry and Sallyanne Clarke and their crew maintain a fastidious level of excellence through countless lunches and dinners – one McKennas Guide editor has eaten here 40 times, and never had an indifferent meal. Clarke’s success boils down to the fact that his sophisticated cooking is underpinned by a ruddy, rustic authenticity, as you would expect of a guy who loves sausage sandwiches with YR sauce, or a bag of chips with extra salt and vinegar. Like the late Paul Bocuse, Clarke’s food is slick but hearty, and anchored in tradition – Kilkeel crab with kohlrabi and macadamia nuts; lamb rump with globe artichokes and samphire; peach mousse with milk chocolate ganache. L’Ecrivain is one of Dublin’s classic destinations, and a visit is always a special occasion.
