Michelin stars rain down on Irish restaurants…roll on pay day

Ireland has five new Michelin-starred restaurants and seven new stars after the launch of the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2020 in London.


There’s never been a better time to eat out in Ireland! We have five new Michelin-starred restaurants and seven new stars after the launch of the Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2020 in London.

Aimsir, at Cliff at Lyons, in Co Kildare, was one of the new entries and it managed the rare feat of entering the guide with two stars on its debut. It has been open for less than five months after opening.

Aimsir champions using mainly ingredients indigenous to Ireland and its 18-dish tasting menu costs €115.

In Dublin, the Greenhouse was awarded its second star.

Writing in The Irish Times, Marie-Clarie Digby said Raymond Blanc who was presenting chef Mickael Viljanen with his two-star chef’s jacket, “found himself on the floor, literally, with the force of the Finn’s greeting”.

A four-course menu at the Greenhouse costs €110; a six-course tasting menu is €129.

The other new one-star restaurants are the Oak Room at Adare Manor, Limerick, under head chef Mike Tweedie; Bastion in Kinsale, Co Cork, under chef proprietor Paul McDonald; the Muddlers Club in Belfast, under Gareth McCaughey; and Variety Jones in Dublin, under chef proprietor Keelan Higgs.

Enda McEvoy’s Loam, in Galway, won the sustainability award for 2020, and back at Adare Manor, Jurica Gojevic, head of wines and beverage, took the award dedicated to that profession.
