River Restaurant at Limerick Strand Hotel - Tasting Dinner

Thursday 29 March 2012



Quietly making some ‘culinary noise’, the talented Tom Flavin has put The River Room Restaurant at the Limerick Strand Hotel on the foodies radar. Recently shortlists in the RAI Awards for best Hotel Restaurant and Best Gastro Pub, the food at The River Restaurant simply speaks for itself.  Honest, traceable, simple and delicious!
The River Restaurant at Limerick Strand Hotel and Nash Wines have teamed up for an exclusive dining experience showcasing local produce matched with amazing wines by Gregory Barbet from Loron et Fils in Beaujolais, France.  All produce used will be sourced from local Artisan producers in the area. 
Loron et Fils – Beaujolais & Maconnais
In 1821, Jean-Marie Loron, the mayor of Chénas and former manager of the Mâcon church estate created a business exporting Beaujolais and Mâcon wines.  His son, who succeeded him, merged his business with that of his father-in-law, Charlet in 1852.  The Charlet family, who had been wine merchants in Saint-Amour and Juliénas in the 18th century also owned the "Clos des Billards" at Saint-Amour.

Today, the business is managed by the sixth generation of the family.  The quality and reliability of their wines are internationally renowned, their strong image of durability and longevity contributing to their excellent reputation. Maison Loron is the only wine merchant to specialise (80%) in Beaujolais and Mâconnais wines, exporting them throughout the world.
