U is for Unwind

Unwinding in Dungarvan

In Dungarvan you are spoiled for choice when it comes to dining.  So I will only show you a few of my favorite haunts.

As you stroll along the Quay there is the Indian Ocean, with the best Tandoori Prawns.

And the Interlude, which I mentioned in my "Q for Quay" post. The Interlude is owned and run by local chef, Susan Denn.

Now you may think that is all my town has to offer but y0u are soooooo wrong. Dungarvan boasts Tannery on Quay Street. This fine dining restuarnt was voted Ireland's Best Restaurant in 2013 The Tannery is owned and run by Paul Flynn, one of Ireland's foremost chefs and his wife Maire.

Crews is a Steak and Seafood Restuarant located just around the corner from The Tannery on Church Street in a building that dates back to the 16th Century. Crews is owned and run the Horsom sisters,  Róisín and Jane. Both top class professionally trained chefs.

There's is Merry's Bar and Restaurant across the road from The Tannery and Crews for more casual dining. History of Merry's Wine Merchants can be found on post for the "Letter O",

Moving up Main Street towards the square, you will come across Jitterbeans. A great place to buy lunch on the run.

Round the corner onto the Square and you will find Ormond's Cafe.  A perfect stop for tea and a scone, or if you are feeling indulgent a slice of tart.

Also located on the Square is one of my favorite lunch spots, The Local.
The Local is owned and run by Donnchadh and Helena Gough.  Irish Traditional Music is Donnchadh's forté. Donnchadh, one of the founding members of he band Danú, plays both the uileann pipes and bodhrán. And the food locally sourced is Great too!

For family dining you can't bet "The Shamrock" on O'Connell Street. Owned and run by Una and John O'Riordan.  Where you get a great Irish Breakfast, lunch and dinner at a very reasonable price.
