Food should taste of where it comes from and reflect its origin – the Atlantic, the Kerry hills, the luscious golden vale. Provenance matters because it shapes the raw materials, the final ingredients, and gives them a flavour that’s a cut above everything else. Seasonal freshness matters too and we’re passionate about sourcing locally. Picked, plucked, caught or harvested, the shorter the journey from paddock to plate, the better. It’s why we go the distance to make sure our food doesn’t. That way you get to savour the very best of local produce and a genuine Irish food experience at The Merrion Hotel.
