An elegant restaurant exploring the Irish larder.
Inspired by the idea of climate and how it controls what grows and is harvested – and how that discovery influences our mood and our plate.
Celebrating what can be sown and harvested, fished and foraged on the island of Ireland, Aimsir is a passionate advocate for an authentic range of ingredients used in a sophisticated and inventive way.
Cornwall-born chef Jordan Bailey and Danish front of house manager Majken Bech Christensen have been exploring the food producers and ingredients of their newly adopted home. Jordan was previously head chef at 3 star Michelin Maaemo where the two met, and a key member of 2 star Michelin Restaurant Sat Bains, whilst Majken honed her skills at 2 star Michelin Henne Kirkeby Kro.
These two young newly-weds – in their twenties, one from Denmark, one from Cornwall, now making a home together in Ireland – are celebrating a larder that is new to both of them, and indulging in the excitement and adventure of discovering this bounty together.
Aimsir, our elegant two-Michelin starred restaurant at Cliff at Lyons, now offers an Aimsir Lounge Experience. The chic bar with indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the beautiful gardens opens from 3:00pm, Wednesday to Saturday, and from 1:00pm to 7:00pm on Sundays, Aimsir Lounge is a unique opportunity to experience some of the magic of Aimsir in the lush countryside setting of Cliff at Lyons.
Chef Jordan Bailey’s clever and delicious menu of snacks and bites will change regularly, according to what’s growing on-site and available from Aimsir’s exceptional family of Irish suppliers.
The heart of what Aimsir does is to champion the very best of what Ireland has to offer, so to accompany the Aimsir Lounge snacks selection enjoy one of mixologist Rose’s signature all-Irish cocktails, showcasing the versatility, creativity and, above all, quality of drinks produced on the island.
On leisurely Sunday afternoons, we serve a more elaborate set menu plus the option to order an additional à la carte option from the grill, for example lobster, bone marrow, fish or Dexter beef, depending on what’s available.
On Sunday the drinks offering shifts too, where sommelier and Aimsir’s front of house manager Majken Bech-Bailey focuses exclusively on wine and Champagne, by the bottle or by the glass, and each week the theme changes to suit the weather, the food or occasion.
Both the snacks and the Sunday menus change daily or weekly but the blueprint stays the same — garden treats, house made breads or crackers and charcuterie with foraged pickles and preserves and excellent Irish cheese for €18.50 from Wednesday to Saturday, and a set menu of seasonal Irish plates with the option to order from the wood-fired grill on Sundays for €45.
