Off The Beaten Track - Wexford: Killiane Castle

Archive - all the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

Killiane Castle is a pure treat, an unpretentious, warm family home. Paul Mernagh and his family have created a cocoon of comfort in this fine house – and castle tower – and of special note is some scrummy cooking, both at dinner and breakfast. The stars of our recent dinner were impeccable potatoes from Carne, and beetroot and carrots from Paul’s garden, but everything was super-delicious. In a perfect world, you stay at Killiane twice: the night before catching the ferry, and on the evening of your return, when you have this smashing food to look forward to, and plenty of time to enjoy breakfast the following morning.
