First Trip Ireland

elisatl | Feb 14, 201512:20 PM

I am excited for my first trip to Ireland in late March, a rare trip without children. We are staying a few nights in Dublin and a few on the West Coast near Galway. My motto for vacations is always "Life is too short to eat badly" which means I love to do a lot of planning. Would love some advice here, as many of the Ireland discussions on the Board seem older (I did search before posting). So far for Dublin I am hoping for Chapter One, L. Mulligan Grocer, Patrick Gillbaud and the Winding Stair. In the West, ArdBia, and Moran's Oyster Cottage in Galway. Would love to know if anyone has thoughts on the Wild Honey Inn in the Burren, or other recommendations for good seafood near Croag Patrick or the Cliffs of Mohr. What do I mean by good food: Not necessarily expensive or fancy, notwithstanding my list, but food the shows off the quality of its ingredients proudly, is simpler rather than drowned in sauce, with a pleasant and well-run atmosphere. I have been known to drive an hour for a wonderful sandwich, and to sit on the phone for hours for a 4 star reservation. Help appreciated, thanks in advance!!
