We had heard about Ferndale from a friend during our trip to Ireland and called a few days before arriving in Achill to reserve a table. We were absolutely delighted with the experience and it is an experience not just a simple matter of an evening meal. Jon and his staff have created something truly unique. The choice of dishes on the menu, mixing the straightforward with the very exotic was impressive but not as impressive as the flavours that blew us away. We were so impressed we asked to come back the following night and had another very memorable evening with outstanding food, wine & service. One word of warning, if you are looking for traditional Irish cuisine, this is not for you. A must for all lovers of fine dining. Keep up the great work Jon, we'll be certainly back to visit you next time in Ireland!
