Bono, above, was one of the first into the Green­House, Ea­monn O’Reilly’s restau­rant on Daw­son St, af­ter it was awarded a Miche­lin star. He won’t have dented his cof­fers with their fab­u­lous 2/3-course lunch menus at €29/€36, al­though he may have loos­ened his belt and had the five-course tast­ing menu at €55. The celebri­ties were also out tick­ling their taste­buds in Rasam Restau­rant in Glasthule re­cently, where The Tu­dors ac­tor Nick Dun­ning and his ac­tress wife, Lise-Ann McLaugh­lin, were chow­ing down on top-notch In­dian food, while Miriam O’Cal­laghan and hubby, Steve Car­son, were din­ing with friends in an­other cor­ner.


For 20 years, Ge­orgina and Barry O’Sul­li­van’s Bal­ly­more Inn has been a bea­con of great food in Co Kil­dare. Ge­orgina has a nat­u­ral in­stinct for food, and is now shar­ing her culi­nary se­crets in her first cook­ery book — Cook­ing at The Bal­ly­more Inn, be­low left, pub­lished by Es­tragon Press, €20. With in­no­va­tive food for ev­ery oc­ca­sion, this is a book that won’t just sit on your book­shelves. See bal­ly­mor­einn.com


Fancy learn­ing the tricks of the trade from a French chef, with din­ner thrown in as well, for just €50? Next Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 4, at the Kil­lar­ney River­side Ho­tel, head chef Cyrille Du­rand will be con­duct­ing a mas­ter­class on el­e­gant win­ter dishes. It kicks off at 6pm with a wel­com­ing drink and chat, fol­lowed by four hours train­ing and tips in a pro­fes­sional kitchen, in­clud­ing din­ner, cooked by you. See river­side­hotelkil­lar­ney.com
