    The Woollen Mills Eating House

    1. The Woollen Mills Eating House, Dublin

    Location is everything in this bright “Eating House” in a beautifully upgraded old Dublin woolen shop. Vast windows overlook the River Liffey, lined with dappled beech, oak, ash and sycamore trees. The menu features traditional throwbacks, such as Dublin coddle, making the Woollen Mills one of the go-to spots in the city. Drop in any time of day for crispy line-caught mackerel, Connemara cured ham or a comforting slice of tea cake.

    Kai Café + Restaurant

    2. Kai Café + Restaurant, Galway

    With St Tola cheese, fish from the Connemara Smokehouse, and pheasant from Dromoland Game, Kai’s focus is firmly on the quality of its suppliers. Jam jars hanging from the ceiling, chunky wooden benches and open stone walls make it the perfect hideaway on a blustery afternoon. Well, that and the daily-changing menu of fresh, light dishes such as west coast crab and trout caviar.

    The rustic old-world beauty of 1826 Adare, in a traditional thatched cottage in the picture-perfect village of Adare, makes it an ideal location for a seasonal bite.

    Gregan's Castle

    6. Gregan's Castle, Ballyvaughan, County Clare

    The brittle lunar landscape of the Burren in County Clare harbors some real little gems – one of them is the Dining Room in Gregan’s Castle. Using the very best ingredients on his doorstep, head chef David Hurley turns out super-special plates of contemporary Irish food. Great location, great dining room, and a truly special experience.

    The ethos of the Mourne Seafood Bar: serve the best local seafood in the most delicious way possible. And it works! Chalked-up blackboards, a laid-back atmosphere and extra-fresh produce hauled in from local ports draw the crowds night after night for everything from “oysters au naturel” to aromatic pots of fresh Mourne mussels. Simple and delicious.

    Local and seasonal produce, free-range eggs and meats, and organic dairy fare – provenance and quality are key at Newforge. This dining room within a beautiful Georgian country house has one table every night for non-guests. Snap it up and savour dishes such as horseradish panna cotta with smoked County Sligo venison and watercress salad.

    Fancy some organic turf-smoked Donegal salmon with your pint? Get to this great gastro pub in the town of Dungannon. The quality of the cooking draws the crowds to what is one of the oldest public houses in Ulster, with a lineage dating back to the 18th century.

    The Fumbally

    10. The Fumbally, Dublin

    Think lunch rather than dinner at this much-loved Dublin café. It’s one of a clutch of coffee shops in the city (3fE, Brother Hubbard) spearheading a new attitude to good, solid cooking. The focus is on great suppliers, served up without any attitude in a super-cool atmosphere. A city fave.
