The Rising Tide in Glounthaune, Cork, picked up the prestigious title of ‘Best Restaurant in Munster’ in the ‘Good Eating Guide to Ireland’ at an event in Dublin that was attended by restaurateurs, food critics and foodies from all over Ireland on Monday 11 June.

The restaurant is quoted as being a secluded sanctuary just 10 minutes from Cork city centre, with some of the best seafood in the region and breath-taking views.   The owner Sandra Murphy brought nationwide attention to the family business during her time on TV3’s The Apprentice, and it has enjoyed further fame from celebrity visits, including Lady Gaga.

Commenting on the win, Sandra Murphy said, “We are over the moon at winning such an esteemed title.  It’s a challenging time for the industry, so we are delighted to see that our hard work, ethos of only sourcing the highest quality local produce, and recognition that customers are looking for value for money and something a little different, is paying off”.
