Stick them all on the list.

Three restaurants in Ireland have been awarded new Michelin Stars for 2024, with one more receiving its second in as many years.

Homestead Cottage in Co Clare, the Bishop’s Buttery in Co Tipperary and D’Olier Street in Dublin have were all awarded the coveted accolade during a ceremony in Manchester on Monday evening.

Cork restaurant Terre was awarded a second star, having been given its first in 2023.

Including the four Irish restaurants, a total of 25 businesses were awarded Stars on the night, with one new Three Star, six new Two Stars, and 18 gaining their first Star.

Here is what the Michelin Guide had to say about the Irish cohort for this year’s ceremony:

Terre, Castlemartyr – “Located inside the stunning Castlemartyr Resort, this is a restaurant entirely befitting of its surroundings. After being awarded their first Star last year, Vincent Crepel and his chefs have made quick work of taking themselves to the Two Star level.

“This has been achieved thanks to original, modern dishes with well-judged contrasts that allow the supreme quality of the ingredients to shine.”

The Bishop’s Buttery, Cashel – “Inside Cashel Palace Hotel, Head Chef Stefan McEnteer and his team have crafted a menu of dishes that demonstrate great skill in their execution, along with terrific flavours and balance. There is detail and care in the cooking, but plates are never overworked, instead allowing the top quality Irish ingredients to do the heavy lifting.

“The food – along with the confident, efficient service from a friendly team – is entirely befitting of the rather grand setting in the cellar of this magnificent hotel.”

Homestead Cottage, Doolin – “On Ireland’s west coast, we have what is surely the most rural of the newly anointed Stars. Run by Robbie and Sophie McCauley, who met while working at Gregan’s Castle, Homestead Cottage in Doolin is a thoroughly charming place.

“Its setting inside a former crofter’s cottage provides plenty of character, and dishes are often brought to the table by Robbie and his fellow chefs with palpable pride. Garden produce and local ingredients like Aran monkfish are used in cooking that demonstrates refinement, precision and a great understanding of balance.”

D’Olier Street, Dublin – “At this corner site in the centre of Dublin, you’re greeted by an architecturally striking building that certainly promises a certain grandeur. The interior, in fact, has a more modern, pared-back feel, and it’s the dishes themselves that are most visually impressive.

“Executive Chef and Co-Owner James Moore has plenty of international experience, and has crafted a menu that demonstrates all the technical skill, refined combinations and depth of flavour you would expect of a Michelin Starred establishment.”
