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 Ireland 2019 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.
