This week, Michelin presented the 2024 restaurant selection of The Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland, during a special ceremony held at The Midland Hotel in Manchester.

Terre at Castlemartyr Resort in Cork was recognised with an incredible second Star, adding to the star it received last year. The Michelin team commented, “Vincent Crepel and his kitchen team have made impressively quick work of crafting a bold, assuredly two Stars experience”.

Welcoming the news, The Castlemartyr Resort team shared, "We are honoured to announce that Terre has been awarded a second Michelin star at The Michelin Guide UK & Ireland awards ceremony in Manchester this evening. Being awarded the second Michelin star is a wonderful elevation to receive from the inspectors. We are so proud of the team and what we have achieved. Receiving the second star is a tribute to the creativity and standards we aim to reach and maintain. Thank you all so much for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you to Terre in 2024."

In Tipperary, The Bishop’s Buttery at Cashel Palace Hotel earned it’s first Star, with the Michelin Guide recognising its “Top-quality produce and great natural flavours”.

Director of Culinary at Cashel Palace Hotel, Stephen Hayes congratulated his team and Head Chef of The Bishop’s Buttery, Stefan McEnteer, saying: “We are really delighted with today’s news. Gaining a Michelin Star so soon after opening is a fantastic achievement. It has always been my hope to receive the Star and now, along with Stefan and the team, we have achieved it. I honestly couldn’t be any happier. This is an important recognition of our hard work and is wonderful for team morale, reflecting our ambitions front and back of house.”

Adriaan Bartels, General Manager, Cashel Palace Hotel welcomed the news: “We are delighted to know that The Bishop’s Buttery has been acknowledged by Michelin as a high-quality restaurant. We have had a fantastic couple of years since opening the hotel and this will be an additional boost to our attractiveness as a destination, for local guests and for international tourists.”

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of The Michelin Guide commented: “To have so much positive news to share with the industry, at a time when restaurants are facing so many challenges, gives me great pride and is proof of the continued vitality within British and Irish dining. That this has happened in the 50th year of the Great Britain & Ireland Guide is proof of how much gastronomy has grown and evolved in that time.”

The selection of restaurants in The MICHELIN Guide Great Britain & Ireland are joined by the hotel selection. Every hotel in the selection has been chosen by The MICHELIN Guide experts for its extraordinary style, service and personality.
