Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud
With a sophisticated setting within the 5-star The Merrion Hotel, the award-winning Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud has been attracting Dublin’s foodie crowd for over 30 years. As Ireland’s only 2 Michelin star restaurant, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is set within a beautiful 19th century townhouse decorated in a classic Irish style, while still maintaining a contemporary edge. Soaring high arched ceilings create a dramatic first impression, along with the bold contemporary Irish art collection and colourful patterned carpeting. The contemporary Irish menu is seasonally-driven and showcases premium local ingredients, such as the braised Atlantic Turbot with heritage carrot, truffle and citrus vinaigrette; and mellow spiced Wicklow lamb fillet with aubergine puree. As one of the city’s most exclusive fine dining restaurants, expect an indulgent price tag for a truly indulgent fine dining experience. For a more affordable dining experience, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud also offers a two-course lunchtime menu for €30, where you can enjoy delicacies such crispy slow cooked pork with pomme puree, lemon star anise and liquorice, and raspberry rhubarb verrine with yoghurt sorbet.
