I have had two recent visits to Viewmount House and both were excellent.Two weeks ago, my 'foodie group' friends and I checked in overnight to do justice to the delights of their tasting menu. All five of us were extremely impressed with all aspects of the experience. The quality of the ingredients, cooking and presentation were all very impressive and the service was understated but attentive. There was an excellent and well priced wine list to complement the wonderful food. It is impossible to single out individual dishes - duck confit, soup, salads, elderflower jelly, steak, lamb fillet, chocolate delice, mango and coconut plate - just some of the dishes ordered and tasted, shared and savoured.
The three rooms we stayed in were each delightful in their own way, with great attention to detail of furnishings and decor.Excellent toiletries, comfortable beds and gracious touches such as apples on china plates and bottled water in each room made for an excellent overnight. A wonderful breakfast with options such as poached eggs and bacon with hollandaise sauce on boxty and hot smoked salmon with scrambled eggs were on offer in the beautiful vaulted breakfast room the following morning. All of this was presided over by Beryl, who manages to appear totally relaxed while being ultra organised.
Two weeks later, while travelling back from the west of Ireland, my husband and I dropped in for Sunday lunch. This is a more traditional offering and is tremendous value for three courses of well sourced and cooked food - attested to by the full house of couples, families and a large group celebrating a birthday. Jim was on hand as well as Beryl on this occasion and very kindly showed parts of the house to my husband.
So whether for a gourmet evening experience - ideally with an overnight - or a tasty Sunday lunch, you cannot go wrong with Viewmount House.
