The g Hotel

Welcome to GEO our newly designed restaurant. Experience ‘Never Ordinary’ dining. Geo means earth. It can also mean the world. Our inspiration comes from around the globe, but our ingredients come from just around the corner.

Ireland has an embarrassment of culinary riches, with some of the world’s best seafood and produce pulled from our local farms and coastlines, just minutes and miles away from where you sit right now, and when you sit down at our table, that’s what you’ll get. In a more cheffy mood, we might use words like “provenance” and “terroir” to talk about our menu. But what we really mean is food that captures the energy and excitement of being right here, right now, in this exact place.

Savouring the moment, the experience, the taste, and the company.
