Overlooking the handsome, tree-lined People’s Park in Limerick’s historic Georgian Quarter, No.1 Pery Square is a luxurious and intimate boutique townhouse and one of the country’s prettiest and most characterful hotels.
So in thinking about how we could do something different with our #drivebydining offering during COVID_19 restrictions, something that shares our love of food and of Limerick with you. The format of that offering is to allow you to join us on a food tour around Europe. The tour will visit regions and cities we have visited before and one we will visit when we get to these leave these shores again.
In each of these destinations , we feel we can make tangible links with Limerick in terms of spirit, culture, food. Areas that like Limerick maybe more unheralded but yet still provide a fantastic offering to those who visit. Something we can strive for as a food community. Over the course of the next few months we’ll visit the Basque region via Bilbao, Puglia in Italy via Bari and Slovenia via Ljubljana.
Menus are €35pp and phone bookings to (061) 402 402 which opens the Tuesday of each week. For more details see here.
With 20 bedrooms, delicious food & wine in the restaurant and lounges, an innovative and polished organic spa in the basement, an interestingly stocked shop, a sweet terrace and kitchen garden, and full of personality and style throughout.
The vision of the owner, Patricia Roberts who bought the building in 2006, is to be found everywhere at No. 1, one of a terrace of six Georgian houses built around 1830 by the Pery Square Tontine Company.
Widely regarded as being the best example of late Georgian architecture in Limerick and probably in Ireland, No.1 is the wonderful building that wraps around the corner of this impressive terrace.
As a Grade 1 listed building, listed on the inside as well as the outside, No. 1 was fully restored in a labour of love by the owners, with all its original architectural features expertly reinstated, so guests are surrounded everywhere by the authentic history of the property.
The charming restaurant on the first floor of No. 1 Pery Square is called Sash, a reference to that most distinctive feature of these magnificent houses, the sash window – and also, maybe, a nod to the dressing-up appeal of going out to dinner!
The restaurant, with views of the surrounding Georgian streetscape, has a menu that is quietly confident and traditional, but with the same contemporary twist to be found through the rest of the property. With a focus on home cooking with an extra layer of sophistication, Sash dishes also use herbs and ingredients grown in No. 1 Pery Square’s own kitchen gardens whenever possible.
Sash and the lounges at No.1 Pery Square all have carefully selected wine lists featuring a collection of unique boutique producers & classic French bistro selections, and ranging from casual wines for relaxed evenings, to rare and hard to find bottles. The Wine & Artisan Shop at No.1 Pery Square stocks some of those great wines.
