Irish country-house charm
Within the magnificent 350-acre estate of Ashford Castle, overlooking magical Lough Corrib.
The Curry Room at The Rubens at the Palace, adjacent to Hotel 41, serves an inspired three-course menu created by Chef Arun Kumar. Working closely with Head Chef Kevin Joseph at our sister property, The Oyster Box Hotel in Durban, the menu celebrates authentic flavours made with the finest ingredients and exclusively imported spices from India.
The intimate and supremely comfortable setting of the restaurant incorporates Rajasthani hand embroidery and rich red colours which reflect the vibrant diversity of the dishes.
Mohan and his team will take you on a gourmet journey through the menu, beginning with keema samosa, poppadums, homemade lime pickle, mango chutney and mint raita. A choice of mains includes inspired traditional Indian curries. Complete the experience with a choice of desserts, including Indian influenced Kulfi ice cream.
While ideal for quiet time, the Conservatory can also be used exclusively for intimate dinners, baby showers, hens parties, book clubs or even as a break-away room for conferences.
join us for a superb Gin Tasting experience, with a flight of three local gins paired with tonic waters, together with a variety of botanicals and spices to create your own uniquely crafted blend. Complement your gin with three delicious canapés.
