We enjoyed a wonderful dinner in the Herring Gull last Saturday night. We had a nice table at the window, although the weather was so bad, it was difficult to fully appreciate the view! Nonetheless, we had an exceptional meal. I chose from the set menu, which was really good value, 20 euro for 2 course, 25 euro for 3 courses. My partner opted for the daily special starter and main course. The presentation was delightful, a visual treat before tasting a morsel! I was genuinely impressed by such a high standard, on all counts, friendliness and welcome of the staff, atmosphere, and not least, the food itself. We had a very good bottle of Australian Shiraz, at a reasonable price. We had been told about the restaurant by Mary Martin, with whom we were staying, in the local Kilmahon House. (A gorgeous period house, providing a superior standard of B&B, nearby) Mary had tried to reserve a table the previous night for us, but there was no free table. We were so glad we got the opportunity to enjoy a meal on one of our 2 nights staying in the area. We would highly recommend the Herring Gull, and hope to return for more of the same in the near future, when we most definitely will be returning to Kilmahon House. A wonderful weekend all round, despite the torrential rain, the warmth of the welcome and the high standards we enjoyed, made our trip so worthwhile. Well done!
