No visit to County Down would be complete without stopping by Balloo House to eat some delicious locally caught seafood. This most memorable Roast Cod with Strangford Lough Shellfish and Comber Potatoes was one of the best dishes I ate in Ireland last year with my tour groups. When you taste each perfectly prepared morsel it’s no surprise Chef Danny Miller won best Chef in Ireland back in 2010.
My American guests are always enchanted to eat in the fine dining restaurant of Balloo House, a coaching house with a 400 year old history. Other prestigious endorsements also include the Michelin Guide, Georgina Campbell Guide, McKenna Guide and the AA Restaurant Guide. Many thanks to Chef Danny Miller and I cannot wait to return this summer.
Only weeks away until March 17 it’s appropriate to play tribute to Co. Down where our Irish saint is buried and Strangford Lough – Shellfish is the best.
