We had a 4 course dinner here during out stay at Ballynahinch Castle. The meal was superlative and we enjoyed trying the various entrees/desserts. The chocolate lava cake was among the best desserts I've ever had.

The chef here has a handle on new ideas without taking you to places you don't want to go. Execution is excellent and service is fine dining standards. Some of the best meals in Ireland had here at the end of a long active day.
