Discover Wilde’s Restaurant, serving fine contemporary Irish cuisine in a stunning setting. The entire first floor of the original house has been authentically restored and features a collection of intimate spaces for you to enjoy the delights of fine food and wine, with splendid views over the waters of Lough Corrib. 

Under the inspired direction of Jonathan Keane, recently described as “one of the country’s most exciting chefs” and with many awards nominations to his name, it has become a popular destination not just for local foodies but visitors from afar. Jonathan creates a variety of delicious dishes that showcase the unique flavours and textures of the finest local produce, from succulent Irish beef and lamb to fish and seafood fresh from the waters of Galway Bay and the Connemara coastline. The kitchen brigade were recently awarded Best Emerging Irish Cuisine 2016 by the Restaurateurs Association of Ireland.

The restaurant takes its name from famous local character, Sir William Wilde. He 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 stood. His other claim to fame is that he fathered a son of great talent and notoriety – Oscar Wilde.
