The Tide Full Inn

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

Marianne and Joseph run a super place in The Tide Full Inn, in pretty Kinvara, a wonderfully characterful traditional bar that just happens to offer true, grown-up cooking that is a real treat. The accent veers towards the Italian classics – they describe themselves as both a trattoria and a pizzeria, and so you can expect their riffs on great Italian classics such as lasagne; linguini with Clarinbridge clams; a good antipasti plate. There are more straight-ahead choices – sirloin with herbs, lamb with mint sauce – that nevertheless still reveal a very European sensibility in the cooking. Don’t miss their signature pizzas – the casalinga; the rustica; the Tide Full Inn – and don't even think of leaving before you have some good polenta cake or a slice of their fine tiramisu, baked with loving skill by Marianne. The cooking shows control and creativity right across the menu, the atmospherein the room is pure darling, and value for money is really keen, helped by the fact that they don't take credit cards so, if you're short of cash, you might nip over to an atm in the village before you push open the doors of the Tide Full Inn.
