Feasting in the Garden Of Ireland: Wicklow’s Gourmet Retreat

Wicklow is known as the Garden of Ireland and alongside plants and trees, we grow and raise some fantastic food in the local area. The world-class hospitality of our local restaurants, hotels, pubs and cafes is unlike anywhere else in Ireland giving us a great reputation for visitors from far and wide. From gourmet dining in restaurants to side-of-the-road pub grub stops, Wicklow has dining options for everyone. In our luxury hotel in Blessington, we’re proud to have one of the finest restaurants in Wicklow. Our Fia Rua Restaurant is the epitome of fine dining near the Blessington Lakes. Our gourmet breaks give you the best food and experience in Wicklow.

Fia Rua Restaurant

Renovated in 2020, Fia Rua is our in-house restaurant in Tulfarris Hotel Wicklow and the centrepiece of our gourmet retreat. The stylish décor includes stunning hand-cut Carrera marble, rich leather upholstery, solid hand-worked oak panelling, antique mirrors and feature brass shelving. We rely on local suppliers to provide us with the finest, locally sourced ingredients which we then rework and present to you, to order. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner in Fia Rua and have a very special afternoon tea menu for a special occasion. As well as a full and varied menu, we have a wide selection of drinks, from beers, wines, and spirits to bespoke cocktails – ideal for finishing off a delicious meal.

Locally Sourced Ingredients

We’re lucky to have a wealth of local suppliers in Wicklow and surrounding parts of Ireland. We support local producers, farmers, and growers by buying locally whenever we can. Our guests benefit from the freshest, locally grown produce, straight from farm to fork with as few miles between them as possible. We also have a private garden where we grow our own herbs. Imagine fresh fish caught that morning off the coast in Howth, the freshest herbs grown in our backyard, creamy cheese straight from the farm in Cork and freshly laid eggs from the farm up the road. Our team inspect the quality of our suppliers regularly to ensure high standards and use their culinary expertise to produce excellent plates, every time.

Brasserie Bar

If you’re hoping for more casual dining, our Brasserie Bar is the perfect alternative. Relax and watch the match or catch up with friends and family in our comfortable, spacious bar. Watch the golfers as they compete for the lowest scoring 18 holes or just enjoy the scenery from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Your dining experience will be heightened by a complimentary beer or wine from our list which includes some local brands and brews. From bar snacks to light bites and hearty lunches, our Brasserie Bar is the perfect place to enjoy casual foods without compromising on taste.  Food is served from 12 pm until 9 pm daily.

Breakfast in Tulfarris

Your gourmet experience in Wicklow doesn’t end after dinner. Wake the next morning in our comfortable stylish guest rooms and join us at your leisure for breakfast in our restaurant. Our breakfast items were hand-chosen for their delicious taste and their local source wherever possible. Breakfast options range from healthy to hearty and there is something to suit all appetites. Start by helping yourself to a choice of juices, fresh fruit salad, granola pots, and a variety of breakfast cereals and warming porridge with tasty toppings. Our full Irish breakfast is prepared to order with delicious locally sourced sausage, bacon, pudding, eggs and more. It’s the perfect end to a gourmet getaway.
