Got a gift voucher for this Inn.It was obligatory to stay overnight to eat in their Michelin star restaurant when using the voucher. We were welcomed by Kate our host and were given a lovely ground floor spacious room with extremely comfortable bed. Room was...immaculate with crisp white bedlinen. Restaurant was cosy and inviting. We were however, somewhat disappointed by the limited variety of beers to choose from and thought the prices of wines were very costly for a pub style restaurant, a glass being €10.50 and the cheapest bottle €38. We appreciate the costs of serving quality food but felt the wines were overpriced and not good value. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive both at dinner and breakfast. Overall, a nice stay.More

We stayed two nights and we were glad we dined in on both nights. Food represents the awards they have achieved and yes an earlier reviewer felt it was expensive in these challanging times, but they haven't reached a Michelin milestone for nothing. We loved...the creative food, a treat. Our room was beautifully decorated and the clever style exhumed throughout with old and new world well matched. Breakfast was well organised and the two young servers were both pleasant and attentive relfective of the friendly staff that work there. Thank youMore

This was my first visit to The Wild Honey Inn but it most certainly won't be my last. The food here was just amazing. Everything I had was absolutely delicious. The 2 girls who served us could not have been nicer. They were so informed...and so pleasant. The whole evening was wonderful and i would highly recommend a visit.More

After a long time waiting we finally got to visit here . Food was good and service was great if a bit slow . For starters we had Scallops and Duck followed by Turbot and Steak . Food was good but for 3 courses at...€80 a head was way too much not to mention € 6 for a bottle of water is a bit extravagant .Worth a visit if you want to eat in a Michelin star Restaurant but way overpriced for food provided which can be enjoyed in other Restaurants for half of the price here . A no show or late cancellation penalty of €55 per person on your card is excessive and in all the Restaurants I have visited I have never seen this . Not good enough in these times when you are been encouraged to support local business .More

From the moment you set foot in the bar you are made to feel most welcome. The atmosphere is cosy and friendly, the open fire most welcoming.We opted to have a drink first and wait for our table, to be given the choice was a...nice touch. The hostess Kate was very friendly and attentive. The wine excellent. As for the food, what can I say but delicious, real irish food, like home cooking fine dining style. If you ever get the chance to eat here, dont even think about it just do.More

We visited this lovely place yesterday. The building is a restored house and old style pub which is now a lovely and stylish restaurant and bar keeping the old design features of the building. The wood floors, the wainscotting, the glass and wood panels at...the doors that used protect people from draughts. A big open fireplace. The food. This is a one star Michelin restaurant and deservedly so. The menu is a three course menu for €65 pp. There are three to four choices for each course. We started with Wild white crabmeat in a gazpacho with leaves. Gorgeous. Subtle apple pieces in the crab. Flavours delicate. Our mains were slow cookedPork cheeks in a cream sauce flavoured with tiny mushrooms, broad beans and obviously flavours I can't identify but with tiny roast potatoes it was magnificent. I would have run my finger into the little tiny copper pot it came in but as the restaurant was filling I thought not. It was divine. Desert. I had the creamiest creme brulee with an apple sorbet on the side with shortcake biscuit. He had seared pineapple with pineapple sorbet and lots of other gorgeous flavours. We had a large bottle of sparkling water, pre dinner drinks and a carafe of Spanish Red. The total came to 176 before tip. I'd go again to try the other courses on the menu. Lucky people who live nearby to do so. We'll have to wait and visit again next year. This is a beautiful restaurant. Magnificent food and I can't recommend it highly enough. The staff and service are very professional but friendly and very efficient. It is best to book.More

I don't know if it was because of all the fabulous reviews I read, but I was underwhelmed. I had the steak - it was lovely. The chips were great and the celeriac mash was delicious. The dessert was great. The bread at the start...of the meal was very disappointing. The room I had was tiny and the ensuite was even smaller. I asked for porridge at breakfast - it wasn't on the menu. I got delicious creamy porridge. So I can't put my finger on why I will not be returning.More

This is not just a restaurant, though it is an excellent place to eat, it has delightful rooms and a wonderful breakfast. The dinner and B&B option is attractive. The food is very good, am interesting range of options, well presented and served with panache....The wine list is interesting.More

Excellent experience from start to finish Check in easy , lovely old room but freshly decorated, very clean everywhere. Great menu, sharp service. Very chilled out atmosphere. Lovely breakfast I’d highly recommend, easy to see why it wins so many awards.
