An intimate, contemporary restaurant in Kilkenny
Gulliver’s Restaurant offers a tranquil area for locals and guests of the hotel to enjoy good food in good company.
The establishment is set back from the hustle and bustle of the main foyer, being part of the original house it is decorated with cool, neutral tones. Sunlight fills the space, and the minimalist design is designed to promote relaxation in an understated setting.
The venue is available for private dining midweek, and Table d'Hote menu at weekends.
Our Kilkenny restaurant is open during the following times:
September until May - opened Friday, Saturday and Bank Holiday Sunday nights
June, July and August - opened every night
However, while the ambience may be minimalist, the food is a decadent delight. Our dinner menu features dishes created with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Many of these are selected from local suppliers by our expert chefs, meaning every meal is bursting with flavour. Each option has proven popular with guests, though our personal favourite meal is starting with the Poached Chicken & Wild Mushroom Ballontine. This is served with Wasabi Emulsion, Walnut Crumb and Rocket, and perfectly complements our favourite main, the Pan Fried Fillet of Cod, served with Honey Roast Parsnip, Samphire, and Tartare Cream Sauce.
Our dinner menu is most popular with guests, but many come to dine with us simply for dessert. Our sweet concoctions are renowned throughout Kilkenny for their decadence, and for good reason. Though each one is equally divine, one of our customers’ favourites is the Chocolate & Orange Tartlet. This rich dessert is served with a Berry Compote & Salted Caramel Ice-Cream, to perfectly compliment the flavours. It’s proven so popular, we often have to send customers on their way with a second helping for later.
We cater to a range of dietary requirements.
Our team of chefs are experienced in creating meals for those on a dairy free, gluten free and vegetarian diets. A full list of allergens is available upon request, and our kitchen will do their best to accommodate your needs.
Breakfast is also served daily from 7.30am - 10.30am
