Located in a converted church building—which, rather wonderfully, was bought in the 1860s with a thousand-year lease on terms of 1 shilling per year—Chez Hans is one of the most reliably good restaurants in Cashel. Menus change several times a week, based on what’s freshest and best. Seafood features heavily (Dingle king scallops with carpaccio of beef, or maybe a delicious bowl of steamed mussels with garlic breadcrumbs), or you could opt for a sweet fig and walnut tart served with goat cheese. The dining room is a beautiful space with a vaulted ceiling, redolent of the building’s past life. Reservations are recommended. The restaurant is a 2-minute walk from the Rock of Cashel.
