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

Long before Sally Rooney came along to put Castlebar on the map, brother and sister Aran and Coleen McMahon were writing the culinary story of the town and the county, showcasing County Mayo’s top class ingredients in a series of intuitive and imaginative dishes in both the locations – Andarl Farm ham hock potato cake; Castlemine Farm pastrami reuben; Friendly Farmer chicken and pistachio terrine; Kelly’s rib-eye with seasonal greens; the classic Mayo mezze boards. These dynamic siblings have made an incalculable contribution to the town, and to the livelihood of the artisans of the county, and both the Rua destinations offer the true tastes of County Mayo in the purest, most enjoyable way imaginable.
