There was more good news recently for the already much celebrated Murrisk eatery, The Tavern Bar and Restaurant.

The award winning business, owned by husband and wife team, Myles O'Brien and Ruth Kiely, has just been appointed as a member of Good Food Ireland, the Irish food experience brand.

Good Food Ireland comprises a collection of leading restaurants, hotels, cafes, and food producers, who are passionately committed to local food and highlighting Ireland's food culture.

It describes itself as "a unique trusted guarantee for good food holidays, eating out, learning to cook, or for buying the very best Irish food produce".

"Ruth and I are absolutely delighted," said Mr O'Brien, who is also the head chef at The Tavern.

"We're very proud of the quality of our food and hospitality at The Tavern. We've been steadily acquiring food awards over recent years and we believe membership of Good Food Ireland is a natural step for us."

Myles O'Brien is also a member of Euro-Toques, the European network of chefs committed to the highest quality produce.

The Tavern is no stranger to top reviews and accolades.

It was included in the prestigious Michelin Eating Out in Pubs Guide 2014 and is recommended by international and Irish food critics and guidebooks.

John McKenna described it as "the defining example of the Irish pub".

Recently, The Tavern has developed a reputation for its interesting and quirky festivals and themed evenings.

The May Bank Holiday weekend saw the inaugural Lobster Festival, which was an unqualified success.

Mr O'Brien has also paired locally brewed craft beer, Mescan Beers, with matching food, to create craft beer theme nights.

The restaurant's off season 'Friday Curry Night' has also been a firm favourite with locals and visitors for many years.

"There's plenty more to come," he added. "Watch this space for a rather interesting night in mid-August."
