“Dermot Gannon has earned a loyal following at his attractive restaurant over The Bell pub, in a side street off the square in Cahir. Fresh flowers and a menu board at the door lead diners under an arch beside the pub, and upstairs to a restaurant of character on two floors: exposed brickwork, good lighting and smartly-appointed white linen-clad tables create a good first impression, quickly confirmed by a warm welcome and promptly presented menus which showcase local and specialist products: O’Briens potatoes, Delahunty mushrooms, Slaney Valley lamb, Grubb’s cheeses and Connemara Smokehouse smoked salmon are all among those highlighted – and there is a mouthwatering choice of contemporary dishes to choose from.”
