THE TAN­NERY

10 Quay Street Dun­gar­van, Co Water­ford, 058-45420, tan­nery.ie ¤¤¤ Since open­ing in 1997, Paul and Máire Flynn have turned The Tan­nery brand into a mini em­pire, with a hugely suc­cess­ful restau­rant, cook­ery school, wine bar and town­house for guests who want to spend the night in Dun­gar­van. Draw­ing heav­ily on lo­cal Water­ford in­gre­di­ents, Paul’s mod­ern Ir­ish cook­ing man­ages to be light of touch but sub­stan­tial, and he works won­ders with meat, such as the beef short ribs (¤28) and braised pork cheeks (¤26). The main loft-style din­ing room is bright and buzzy, while the wine bar’s ta­pas-style menu has some jew­els, such as the smoked ba­con and onion cro­quettes (4.50) hot duck dog with sauer­kraut and chips (¤13.50) and smoked fish with horse­rad­ish on toast (¤5). Keep an eye on the web­site for overnight ac­com­mo­da­tion and din­ner spe­cials, which are good value.
