Congratulations to Wade and Elaine Murphy on having their restaurant selected by The Sunday Times as one of Ireland’s 100 Best Restaurants. Read what the newspaper had to say about Restaurant 1826:

“Chef Wade Murphy’s food is all feints and surprises. Superficially , his menus seem straight forward-ham hock croquette, breast of chicken, beef short rib, monkfish scampi, and lemon meringue pie all feature, but Murphy takes these staples apart and reassembles them to create subtle twists.

So baked scallops have a brilliant black pudding granola; smoked pork chop comes with a Longueville House cider mustard; lemon meringue pie has a slick lemon curd parfait and Italian meringue. It’s delightful cooking and the relaxed room where wife Elaine Hourigan Murphy runs the show with consummate ease is equally charming.  There are some artful vegetarian choices, too.”
