At the bottom of the list of main course dishes offered on the menu in Sheedy’s Hotel, a little note advises guests: “All gratuities appreciated and split between all the team”
There you have the soul and spirit of Sheedy’s: spilt between all the team. In a grasping and greedy age, John and Martina's country hotel is generous and gracious. Generosity and graciousness is what has always distinguished Sheedy’s, making it one of the finest places to stay and eat in Ireland. The hotel is comfortable – and the new verandah has been a brilliant success – and John’s cooking is that rare bird: a style of food that is utterly ageless – roasted scallops with pea purée; hake with saffron mash and mussel sauce; Burren lamb with New Quay spinach. Breakfast is one of the finest meals served in Ireland, with every dish cooked to order and – pay attention! people – the scones are out-of-this-world good, and the scrambled eggs are pure culinary gold. Sheedy’s is a shining star of Irish hospitality.
