While staying at Fuschia Cottage nearby (see our separate, glowing review of that accommodation!) we dropped by Ballinalacken Castle for dinner. The view from our table was matched by the friendliness of service and deliciousness of every bite!
I enjoyed the pork belly & gnocchi in brown sage butter so much I (rudely?) lapped-up the remaining sauce with my bread. My husband's mixed salad was fresh, lovely and perfectly dressed. I had the Irish Beef tenderloin, cooked to perfection with just the right amount of Cabernet sauce, while hubby inhaled his roasted pork loin. A well-priced bottle of wine shared over a lovely meal with great service. Now, what could be better? Ended with a shared dessert that matched the meal in deliciousness.
Pricey? Yes, but well worth the expense for a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting! Highly recommend both the Castle and Roadford House Restaurant for a fine-dining break from the typical Doolin pub grub or other lesser restaurants in the area.
