Rathsallagh House Golf & Country Club is regarded as one of Wicklow’s finest eating establishments and has multiple awards to support that view, including the Gold Medal Award for Country House of the Year 2007 & 2008. Best Restaurant in Leinster 2007 ( Food & Wine Magazine ) Irish Breakfast Awards a record 4 times, and the AA Five Diamond Award for Guest Accommodation .

Under the direction of head chef John Kostuik, and in stunning surroundings that enhance the experience, the menus change regularly and are based on the finest local and seasonal produce, much of it from Rathsallagh’s own gardens. The cooking style is described as Country House at its best with modern French and Pacific rim influences. Typical of this approach is roast rack of Wicklow Lamb in summer served with warm potato salad and a red wine jus, while Rathsallagh’s signature dishes include pan seared foie gras with damson compote on home made ginger bread and pan seared cod with succotash and tarragon buerre blanc.

The menu typically consists of a Chef’s complimentary amuse followed by up to 6 choices of starter, followed by sorbets or soup and main courses with fish and vegetarian options according to what comes in fresh from Duncannon on the Wexford coast every day. The desert menu also changes regularly and is supported by an extensive selection of Irish and continental cheeses from the cheese trolley, followed by “petit fours” tea and coffee served after dinner by the fire in the drawing room.

This is a lovely setting for traditional Sunday lunch. Great buffet starter and then roast beef, pork or lamb or fish pie for mains. Excellent service and a good wine list. At €32.50 its a bit pricey in todays climate.

I literally cannot fault this place. This has to be the best meal I have ever had in Ireland. Service is exceptional and the restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, as does the entire house. For starters I had the crab and avocado which was absoloutely divine. Flavours complimented each other so well and the crab was not over powered in any way. My boyfriend had the prawn cocktail which was beautifully presented in a beef tomato. For mains I had the mushroom risotto and my boyfriend the beef. He can be a bit fussy when it comes to beef and generally there are slivers of fat etc left on the plate afterwards. This time however he ate every single morsel and said it was as good as it gets. I really wanted to have some cheese for dessert as it is presented on a beautiful trolley but I was simply too full. My boyfriend had the chocolate lava pudding which again he ate every crumb of. Something else which I think is brilliant about this place is that you can pick any bottle of wine under €40 and only order a half bottle. This was really great as my boyfriend could enjoy some red with his beef without having to get a whole bottle. I cannot wait to return to this place, simply stunning.

Stayed here with my boyfriend on Saturday night so dined in the restaurant. Really gorgeous food. I had the smoked salmon to start, which had beautiful flavours and then the steak for my mains. I love potatoes so was very happy with the side of potatoes and veggies that came with it. My boyfriend had the brie and then the fish, both yum. The dessert of chocolate mousse was not great as it tasted more like a ganache but it was still chocolate! Really enjoyed the meal and the visit. Breakfast the next morning was also AMAZING. So much to choose from and everything was fresh and really good quality.

I have to say that this was the most delicious meal I've had in a long time.I had pate to start and a sirloin steak for mains.The mains came with sideorders included in the price which is a rarity nowadays. We then retired to the drawing room for coffee.The atmosphere and service was top notch.

Simply the best. I have reviewed near to 100 restaurants in the last 3 years or so, and Rathsallagh is simply the best. The food is fine dining, service excellent and everything else that goes along with it. This is how it should be done. Irish food as good as it gets

We visited Rathsallagh House for Sunday lunch and we arrived a little early. We were whisked away to thedrawing room and so well looked after until called for lunch. I believe their lunch menu changes each week but what we had was out of this world, a vast array of starters, soups etc. Roast Beef, Lamb, a whole ham, veggie option and fresh fish pie.. I could go on.. cheese and deserts, it was a fabolous enjoyment of food in a beautiful atmosphere, the staff and Mr. OFlynn were so charming. Great value - will be returning soon!

Had a 2-night stay here, and the food for the evening meal was excellent on both evenings. Fresh, flavoursome and as good as you will get in any "hotel restaurant". Only complaint is that the menu doesn't change often enough if you're staying for a couple of nights. Rabbit saddle starter a highlight.

Visited for Sunday lunch with my wife and Mum, lovely setting and very good food but overpriced at €33 for a three courses carvery lunch. Coffee for two was extra at €7.50 or €8.00. If compared to other restaurants within a 10 mile raduis, its actually very bad value. Won't be back until they review their prices.

Myself and my partner decided to try Rathsallagh House for their brunch/lunch on Sunday. It was priced at around €34 per person. The house is beautiful and even though we were a few minutes late, we were asked if we wanted to have a drink first. The main thing that impressed me about this place was the staff and service - couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and very welcoming. We had a drink first and were then shown into the restaurant. It was only half full and and was a buffet style lunch. Our soup was Parsnip and Ginger, following by a lovely starter selection of goats cheese (the freshest!), salmon, duck pate, pork belly terrine to name a few... lovely fresh dishes. Next came our carvery main, you could have a selection of roast beef, ham, lamb and I think they also had a fish dish and veggie dish. Lots of good food, meat done perfectly and mashed potatoes to die for - and the chef was lovely, very helpful and friendly. He came around to every table making sure everyone was happy. He even asked if we had a dog and gave us a bone to bring home - nice touch! Good to see nothing was wasted. Desserts were nice, nothing too extraordinary. Tea/Coffee was extra on the bill which was a bit steep I thought - 4.50 for a small cappucino. All in all though, a lovely lunch and the best of staff... well done! We had a walk around the gardens too after lunch... lovely place.

My partner and I really enjoy good food, every so often we go away for a weekend and plan our weekend around restaurants recommended by family, friends and food critics. Rathsallagh has become the milestone we compare every other restaurant to. It is a very welcoming, relaxing restaurant beautifully decorated, with a superb atmosphere, wonderful service and more importantly fantastic food. I could not say enough about Rathsallagh. The O Flynn family, proprietors of the hotel are always there to welcome you, there ever presence I‘m sure is testament to the high standards of service and the wonderful atmosphere at Rathsallagh. We celebrate all our important family celebrations in Rathsallagh. Although you cannot put a price on good food, Rathsallagh is exceptional value. I highly recommend the Rack of Wicklow lamb, but to choose between it and the marvellous breakfast served each morning would be impossible!

Just back from spending the weekend in Rathsallagh House. We loved it. The place itself, the staff and the food. The food was delicious, the wines were great - concise wine list but excellent and keenly priced. If I was to have one criticism - the cheeseboard was disspointing. There wasn't a great selection, and only two Irish cheeses (Cashel Blue and a brie). We have amazing cheeses in this country and they weren't represented here, but instead there were too many foreign cheeses of which were too average to explain the lack of Irish ones.
