Wilde's at The Lodge

Fine Irish cuisine within the Ashford estate

Discover Wilde’s Restaurant, voted Hotel Restaurant of the Year 2018 in the Irish Hotel Awards, serving fine contemporary Irish cuisine in a stunning setting, with splendid views over the waters of Lough Corrib. 

Under the inspired direction of Jonathan Keane, one of the country’s most exciting chefs, it has become a popular destination not just for local foodies but visitors from afar. Jonathan, was recently awarded Best Chef in Connaught 2018 by the Good Eating Guide Restaurant Awards.

The restaurant takes its name from famous local character, Sir William Wilde who qualified as a surgeon at the young age of 24 and went on to found the first Eye and Ear Hospital in Dublin, making him famous throughout Europe and the USA. He owned a house just off Lisloughrey by the harbour and The Lodge has a fantastic view of where the house once stood. His other claim to fame is that he fathered a son of great talent and notoriety – Oscar Wilde.
