Two well-known Mayo pubs, The Sheebeen in Westport and Crockets on the Quay in Ballina, are two of 30 Irish pubs to have achieved listings in the latest Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2013 just published.
Overall, this year’s Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide recommends more than 550 pubs – 81 of which are new entries. Geographically, they spread from Caherciveen in Co Kerry to Kylesku in the north of Scotland, Perranuthnoe in the south of England, and Southwold in the east.
Noting that the standard of pub cooking just keeps getting better and better, Michelin Guide editor Rebecca Burr said: “Pubs are often the heartbeat of the local community and are included in the guide because of the quality of their food while at the same time offering something a little extra, be it their character, setting or service.’”
The Michelin Eating Out In Pubs Guide 2013 will be available in bookshops and online from today (Friday November 2 ) priced at €16.99.
