Deasy’s Harbour Bar and Seafood Restaurant in Clonakilty and Fishy Fishy in Kinsale have retained their status amongst the top places to eat in Ireland.

The West Cork establishments are two of twelve Bib Gourmand restaurants to feature in the Michelin Guide Great Britain and Ireland 2015 just published.

Michelin Bib Gourmand awards recognise those establishments that offer good food at affordable prices of €40 or less for a three-course meal.

New to this year’s list is Etto on Merrion Row in Dublin City. Others, all of which also retain Bib Gourmand status from earlier years, are The Courthouse (Carrickmacross), Sha-Roe Bistro (Clonegal), Chart House (Dingle), Downstairs Restaurant (Clontarf, Dublin), Pichet (Trinity Street, Dublin), Pig’s Ear (Nassau Street, Dublin), Aldridge Lodge (Duncannon), Wild Honey Inn (Lisdoonvarna) and La Brasserie (Malahide) — part of the Bon Appétit establishment, itself a Michelin starred restaurant.

In total, nine Irish restaurants have retained their Michelin Star status. They are Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud, Thornton’s at the Fitzwilliam Hotel, Chapter One and L’Ecrivain, all in Dublin City, plus the Bon Appétit in Malahide. Beyond the capital, Kilkenny hosts two Michelin Star restaurants — Campagne in Kilkenny City and the Lady Helen at Mount Juliet Hotel, Thomastown. Others are the House Restaurant at Cliff House Hotel, Ardmore and Aniar Restaurant at Lower Dominic Street in Galway City.

In Northern Ireland, three new awards feature amongst seven Bib Gourmand listings. Newcomers are Deanes at Queens, Bar+Grill at James Street South in Belfast and Old Schoolhouse Inn in Lisbane, Newtownards. Others that retain their Bib Gourmand status are Home and Coppi restaurants (both in Belfast), Oregano (Ballyclare) and Fontana (Holywood).

Speaking at the launch of the Michelin Guide, editor Rebecca Burr noted that this year’s guide highlights what she terms “the richness and variety of Ireland’s restaurant scene, ranging from country pubs to classic dining rooms.”
