Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud
For more than 30 years, Cognac native Patrick Guilbaud has dominated Dublin’s culinary landscape—and with good reason. The only restaurant in Ireland with two Michelin stars, Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud is airily modern yet intimate, and the service is warm and attentive. The classic French cuisine, enlivened by the inclusion of seasonal Irish ingredients, is divine. You might find Irish lobster poached in salted butter, or succulent Wicklow lamb with a punchy cilantro glaze. The lacquered Challans duck is as decadent as it is delectable, and has a cult status in the city.
