If you’re soon to be en route to the Buttermilk County, and you’re looking for great food and drink, then look no further than the centrally located and fabulous five-star Savoy Hotel in Limerick City.
For a casual or quiet bite, head over to the Library, where the book-lined walls and upscale décor create a warm intimate vibe. They serve brunch and afternoon tea as well as offering an all-day menu. If, however you want to celebrate a special occasion or a formal event, have a night out with friends or an intimate dinner, the Savoy will have the perfect option for you. Their Savoy Restaurant is a great place to eat at any time of the day. Airy and elegant throughout, the atmosphere here is luxurious and very inviting. Open from breakfast through lunch, and afternoon tea to dinner, they are committed to providing their diners with fresh, local, artisanal food, expertly prepared by their kitchen team. The menus there have something for everyone with dishes such as a 10oz sirloin with white onion marmalade, wild mushroom ragout and a Madeira jus; pan-roasted salmon with saffron mashed potato; or maybe some tasty spinach and goats cheese tortellini with sundried tomato and rocket to name but a few – but do leave room for a chocolate tasting plate.
Located next door to the hotel is the uber-popular New York style Hamptons Bar & Grill bursting with atmosphere, from the wood panel finishes to the plush leather banquettes to the ambient, hip lighting of the room. One of the best loved features of this place is their custom designed Robata ovens and grills. Using the best beech wood charcoal to prepare their food, there is a unique signature flavour to the meals served in Hamptons. The menu has lots to offer with great mains like slow braised lamb shank served on whipped potatoes and lightly creamed Savoy cabbage; roast fillet of pork with Colcannon, apple compote and a port wine jus; or even a 30-day dry-aged 20oz Mohawk steak from O’Connors Farm in Limerick. If you prefer a bit of fishy fare, you’re more than covered with great choices like oven-roasted Atlantic salmon with sundried tomatoes, Kalamata, olives and crushed new potatoes or perhaps tempura monkfish with an Asian slaw salad, sweet and sour dipping sauce and sweet potato fries.
A visit to the Savoy wouldn’t be complete without one of their famous Savoy Bar cocktails which they proudly boast are made from only the best ingredients. Whether you’re exhausted from a day spent shopping or gearing up for a big night, the Savoy Bar is the perfect place to go. It’s dimly lit, cool and atmospheric and also has a popular outdoor heated terrace.
So, whether your occasion is casual, formal, big or small, The Savoy Hotel is the place to be. The food is great, the atmosphere is buzzy and welcoming and it’s ideally located in Limerick City Centre.
Go see for yourself, you won’t regret it!
