Restaurant of the Month

The Just Ask restaurant of the month for May goes to The Yew Tree restaurant, Muckross Park Hotel & Spa, Killarney, Co. Kerry

Beautifully located near Muckross House and Gardens and within the Killarney National Park, the five star Muckross Park Hotel & Spa has a fine Victorian house at its heart. And the jewel in Muckross Park’s culinary crown is the sumptuous Yew Tree Restaurant, located in the lounge of the original house, where a modern fine dining experience is offered by Executive Chef John O’Leary and his team.

Inspired by local Kerry produce and foods from along the Wild Atlantic Way – from suppliers who are not only listed, but also pinpointed on a map of the west coast regions – the seasonal menus offered include an à la Carte, a Wild Atlantic Way tasting menu and a dedicated vegetarian menu.

“As part of our policy of developing a direct relationship with our growers and producers, much of the produce used is sourced from the nearby Wild Atlantic Way,” they state. All our beef and Kerry Hill lamb is sourced locally and supplied by Kerry butchers Flesk Meats, T.Cronin & Sons and Tim Jones and our veal is sourced from Kilkenny Rosé. Fish and seafood come from local supplier Star Seafoods of Kenmare, while sea vegetables are supplied by Mungo Murphy’s in Connemara. Duck is supplied by Carrigeleena Farm near Mallow, Co. Cork and Fenit Fruit & Veg near Tralee are their chosen specialist growers and fresh produce suppliers.
