Mc Kenna's 100 Best Restaurants in Ireland 2019

By: John and Sally Mc KennaTags: Bridgestone, Mc Kennas

His culinary confidence and his philosophy of cooking have perfectly married.

The critic Edward Said has identified an artistic phase that he calls lateness, the window of activity at a late stage in a creative career when a person produces work of defining energy. Martin Bealin is at that stage in his career now, enjoying a time when his culinary confidence and his philosophy of cooking have perfectly married. This means that every plate the chef sends out in the warm, welcoming space of Global Village is utterly right, logical, delicious. He culls his ingredients from his garden, from his townland, from his county, and creates a plate of West Kerry lamb with barley risotto, and pristine hake with Castlegregory chorizo, and sweet Dingle Bay prawns with garden pak choi, and the flavours define the chef's skill, and the chef's region..

MICHELIN Guide 2019

I left believing that any country that can produce food like this has a future. It really was that good.

...Nuala Cassidy and Martin Bealin's Global Village Restaurant, Michelin recommended and named the best restaurant in Kerry in this year's Irish Restaurant Awards, enhances that reputation considerably. It also makes life difficult for those restaurants that might rest on their laurels. It is, by any criteria, top-class. We — DW and I — visited on the eve of the Munster final and the town was alive, buzzing with tourists Irish, European and a lot of Americans. Sometimes you cringe about what might or might not be offered to Buddie and Gertie from Poughkeepsie but not here. Anyone who could not find something to enjoy in Dingle that evening needs to have a life-reclaiming chat with themselves.
