“Excellent Food and lots of potential for hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2009

We stayed in the Wild Honey inn in Oct having seen it on the RTE programme 'At your service'. We have eaten in both Doonbeg and Sheen Falls in the past so we knew we were in for a treat. We had dinner in the bar and it didn't disappoint. The food was excellent. I had the risotto for starters and my husband had the ham hock and foie gras terrine, both very good, full of flavours and wonderfully cooked. I had wild plaice with bacon, cabbage, carrot and mash – it was divine. My husband had pork belly which had an Asian twist. Again very good with well balanced flavours. We both had deserts to follow which again were sublime. The room was comfortable and we had a great wholesome breakfast the next morning. A very enjoyable stay! I wish Aidan, Kate and family the best of luck in their new venture in these challenging times. They have an excellent formula and I think it will work very well. We can't wait to return!

We stopped at Wild Honey on our way through Lisadoonvarna and we were delighted with what we discovered...a lovely inn that serves absolutely delicious food and very reasonably priced. Everything we tasted from the menu was on a par with some of the best restaurants on the country and we'll certainly be returning for more!

We previously reviewed this delightful B&B back in June under the above title when it was only available to review under the previous owner's name of Kincora House Hotel. Aidan & Kate took it over in late 2008 and opened for business for the 2009 season and re-named it The Wild Honey Inn, it would be a travesty if all the excellent reviews they received were not visible now that a separate entry has been created for The Wild Honey Inn. You can see those reviews here, relevant from May 2009: http://www.tripadvisor.ie/Hotel_Review-g212090-d675190-Reviews-Kincora_House_Hotel-Lisdoonvarna_County_Clare.html

We happened to be driving past and saw The Wild Honey Inn and thought it looked pretty good. When we arrived having booked a room from the Cliffs of Moher visitors centre we were greeted by the friendly helpful owners. The rooms are clean (gradually each one is being renovated) and the living areas downstairs are cosy and comfortable.

The real surprise was the food. Expecting not much from a B&B in the country we were amazed at the high quality and superb flavours of the meals - all at very competitive prices. Turns out one of the owners has worked in michelin starred restaurants.

This B&B was featured on "At Your Service" a few weeks ago. Definitely returning here again when next we're travelling down that way.

My husband and I were on a bike trip through Co. Clare and we stayed two nights at Wild Honey. The dinners we ate there were the best meals we had in Ireland. The owner, Aidan MacGrath is a 5 star chef and this is certainly is proven in the cuisine. We felt very welcome and sure appreciated the Irish hospitality of Aidan, his wife and daughter. The Inn is well set-up, we had a nice private room on the 3rd floor. We could look out our window at the cows and the pleasant landscape around Lisdoonvarna.
