Forget French onion soup, start with Guinness & Onion soup with Gruyère cheese. My dining companion, FBT theater critic Blaise Buckley, had the lobster cocktail, which was beautifully presented and quite satisfying. The waiter recommended we try the Roaring Water Bay Rope Mussels, served with garlic and white wine cream sauce, and they were excellent.

For my first meal in Ireland, I opted for the Rack of Irish Lamb, which was as good as it sounded, while Blaise had the equally good Coburg beef burger with Dubliner cheddar cheese.

While I was pleased to see that the restaurant had a Grüner Veltliner on the menu, one from the Weingut Malat in the Kremstal region of Lower Austria, the bottle was corked (despite the screw cap) and it was the last one. No matter, our waiter recommended an excellent Villa Huesgen Riseling from the Mosel Valley in Germany.

BOTTOM LINE

The combination of traditional Irish hospitality and very comfortable surroundings made for a stay that I regret was too short. I’m sure that one of Dublin’s most famous sons, playwright Oscar Wilde, who said “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best,” would no doubt have enjoyed his stay here as well.
