Wild Honey Inn
We first ate Aidan McGrath’s cooking way back in 1999, when he opened his own restaurant in Bunratty, a basement room that he named Muses. Every element of his cooking that has, subsequently, brought him starry acclaim and media fame was present and correct back then. His food was deep-rooted in classical technique, yet also very personal and great fun to eat. It was another decade before he and his partner, Kate, got the Wild Honey Inn open, when he showed that over the decade he had become an inimitable cook, with new ideas: lamb neck with tomato and sardine; turbot with tapenade velouté; Basque tart with custard sauce. The McGraths have managed to fuse the concepts of the restaurant with rooms and the gastropub with a polished bistro-style cuisine that is quite unique. Make sure to book a room.
