Patrick Guilbaud Restaurant
Widely regarded as Ireland’s best restaurant, this spot in the Merrion Hotel is effortlessly high-end, the only Irish holder of two Michelin stars (with prices to match) that’s certain to wow even the pickiest of foodies. If you want a (relatively) affordable way to drop in, head for their lunchtime offering, but it’s the spectacular a la carte and tasting menus that built the reputation here. Think delicately presented local ingredients, ranging from smoked eel to lobster ravioli and Wicklow lamb fillet. It’s worth breaking the bank for.
