La Fougére at Knockranny House Hotel

Westport
aaicon Restaurant %

The Noonans' tranquil spa hotel makes the most of its Mayo situation, with stunning views every which way, but none more gentling to the senses than over Clew Bay. Inside comes with all the accoutrements of an upscale hotel, including a full-dress dining room, La Fougère, which eschews modern minimalism in favour of immaculate table linen and glassware. The kitchen draws on thoroughbred west Irish produce, including saladings from Knockranny's own organic garden, and Seamus Commons is a dab hand at the art of combining tastes and textures. That may be seen in a first course pairing of rare-breed pork belly with a seared langoustine, hazelnuts and lime-spiked squash purée. Mains offer the choice of extravagantly worked fish dishes such as John Dory in lobster velouté with lemon and dill gnocchi, smoked eel and puréed fennel, or pedigree meats like loin and shoulder of rose veal with smoked pommes Anna in sauce chasseur. Nor does the invention flag at dessert, certainly not in complex creations such as spiced pineapple with lime parfait, minted lime sponge, mango sorbet and passion-fruit jelly.
