The Castlelough Restaurant at The Lake Hotel

On the Shore, Muckross Road, Killarney
aaicon Restaurant %

The Lake Hotel earns its name, as it's bang on the shore of Lough Lein, with glorious views over water and mountains. The hotel has been much extended over the years, and The Castlelough Restaurant, built as part of the original 1820 house, has itself seen total refurbishment while retaining its high ceilings, cornicing and vast windows catching those views. The kitchen works around a slate of modern ideas based on classical traditions, using the area's tip-top ingredients. An assiette of duck, for instance, comes as terrine, smoked, with hazelnuts and orange, and warm pithivier, and a plate of smoked fish as salmon blini, sea trout with lemon and caviar dressing, and haddock fishcake with caper aïoli. Main courses can seem more mainstream, as in chicken breast with fondant potato, pea purée, and leek and mushroom ragout, although roast saddle of rabbit partnered by monkfish and served with black pudding, carrots and a savoury jus brings an interesting interpretation of surf 'n' turf.
