A contemporary boutique hotel in downtown Sligo, the great glass edifice gives the impression that an ocean liner somehow sailed up the Garavogue river and ran aground. /that dramatic setting is complemented by stylish interiors that make a virtue of open, uncluttered spaces enlivened throughout with strategic dashes of colour. The principal dining room is The Kitchen, and combines cheering contrasting red and golden shades in the seating with diverting views over the rive. Alan Fitzmaurice cooks in unmistakable Irish mode, marshalling fine regional produce into dishes such as Doengal crab with pickled pineapple and pea purée in a spiced mango dressing, to be followed by chicken breast stuffed with leeks, applewood-smoked cheese and lemon in red wine 'paint', or hake with a bean and chorizo stew and saffron cream. Finish on a light note with lemon posset, lemon pistachio shortbread and mixed berry jelly, or else with artisan Irish cheeses.
