Our Latest Great Place To Eat - The Enniskerry Inn

Tuesday 22 May 2018

Set smack dab in the middle of the pretty village, which is perfect for family days out, The Enniskerry Inn is a perfect example of modern meets classic with plush contemporary seating and a Farrow & Ball style colour scheme, meshing with hardwood floors, stone wall features and a stag’s head over a very attractive fireplace. The beer garden here is very nice also, perfect for some al fresco fun on a sunny summer’s day, and they have some great events and live music throughout the year.

Grabbing a nice corner table on a banquette, we eagerly surveyed the menu which had plenty to choose from for the starters with homemade chicken liver pate with fig jam, mixed salad and toasted ciabatta, a Cashel blue cheese and poached pear salad with mixed leaves and toasted walnuts to a retro prawn and crab cocktail which sounded divine with its butter poached king prawns and Dingle Bay pinchers. I to’d and fro’d a bit, eventually eschewing the Irish smoked salmon in favour of some very tasty wild Wicklow venison sausage served up with saute potatoes and a wild mushroom jus. Meanwhile, my pal across the table indulged in some finger lickin’ chilli, lime and ginger chicken wings.

For the mains there was pan fried hake being served with crushed potatoes asparagus and a baby caper and tomato dressing, a chicken fusilli pasta dish with green asparagus, roasted red pepper, cherry tomato, spinach and pine nuts, as well as a summer vegetable risotto. For the mad-about-meat amongst us, there was an 8oz homemade beef burger on a brioche bun with salad, bacon and melted cheese, a whiskey sauce and a side of fries; a pork tasting plate; and, my friend’s choice of a succulent 10oz rib-eye which was flanked tender stem broccoli, roasted mushroom & onion puree, crispy potatoes and her choice of a pepper sauce.
