The absolute best meal we ate in Ireland (and maybe one of my favorites ever) was in a cozy restaurant called Thyme in the small town of Athlone.
We found this restaurant through Frommer’s and I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.
We ordered the value meal at 23 Euro each and got all this delicious food.
I remarked to our waitress at the end of the meal that I couldn’t believe the price was so low for this exceptional quality, and she told me that the chef is so obsessed with delivering the best quality food that sometimes he eats the cost on his end.
Even if this restaurant is a bit out of your way, I highly recommend eating here.
The best course of the night (in my opinion) – Ham Hocks in Pureed Celeriac
Steak with Peppercorn Sauce
Strawberry Mascarone Mousse
Passionfruit Semifreddo with Lime Ice Cream
