Hotel Restaurant of the Year at the FOOD & WINE Awards
La Fougère Restaurant is the hotel's multiple award-winning restaurant with Seamus Commons, one of Ireland’s most respected chefs, heading up the team at this Westport restaurant and the food is impeccable; with fresh fish, caught and landed daily, locally reared beef and lamb with fruit & vegetables grown in Knockranny’s gardens. Eating at La Fougère is all about relaxed fine dining, great food chosen from local producers and an interesting wine list – in great company.
Inspired by the cinematic drama unfolding outside the windows, Knockranny House Hotel in Westport Mayo has just unveiled the stylish and sophisticated new look of its beloved La Fougère restaurant.
With a nod to 1920s and 30s movie-star glamour and big screen elegance, La Fougère has been transformed with subtle touches, all designed to make the most of those amazing vistas over Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay.
Designed and overseen by Westport-based interiors talent Emma Minish, she worked closely with local tradesmen as well as sourcing some of the additions to this cosmopolitan décor from various other sources at home and abroad. The overall achievement has been to create a restaurant with intimate spaces without compromising the proportions of the rooms, creating atmosphere while giving a timeless, luxurious feel to La Fougère.
La Fougère is open nightly with dinner served 6.00pm – 9.30pm (9pm midweek). A tasting menu is available nightly and needs to be pre-booked 24 hours in advance.
