Our Review of Conservatory Restaurant at Carrygerry House Clare

Carrygerry House is the period country home of Gillian and Niall Ennis. Alongside the superb and luxurious accommodation here, The Conservatory Restaurant is open to residents and the public. Gillian is a genial and charming host front of house. Before dinner, she and her staff show diners and house guests into the cosy sitting room to enjoy a pre-dinner drink while perusing the menu.

It’s easy to let an hour or so slip by in the comfort of the log fire glowing in the original fireplace in winter, or take in the views from the large windows in summer. You might need a while to browse the selection of dishes, and note all the lovely local producers, proudly named.  

Dinner is served in the very bright and spacious dining room, a period style conservatory room which adds to the character of the house. Crisp linens, gleaming cutlery, and shining glassware give this dining room a grand interior. Views of gardens make a pleasing backdrop to the gourmet feasting. Candles add warmth and intimacy as darkness falls.

Behind the scenes in the kitchen, Niall Ennis is an experienced chef who puts good quality ingredients over fancy cooking techniques. His menu features Irish meats and fresh fish. Beef reared in nearby Quin is a special highlight. Expect some surprises in the combos - Niall isn't into overly fussy food, preferring to let his ingredients shine and enhance them with a few subtle twists and turns of his own creation. This leads to surprising little sauces and dressings which please the palate no end! Desserts are bliss also - we didn't see anyone declining the opportunity for pudding!

To compliment the food experience - lovely wines specially chosen by the couple are well matched to the style of dishes. Old World classics and New World wonders form a concise selection. After dinner, retreat back to the sitting room to enjoy a pot of coffee or tea, and perhaps a nightcap. A fine end to a fine feast.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
