Oh, Wicklow.

Home to Glendalough, Katie Taylor and the setting of P.S. I Love You - Wicklow is so much more than stunning scenes and killer Instagram backdrops. It's also home to some of the best food Ireland has to offer. 

We've done a round up of the best of the best and written down our findings. Treat yourself this week and head to the beautiful county of Cill Mhantáin...

1. Box Burger, Bray

Box Burger is a delicious holy grail in the heart of Bray, providing tasty treats to the hungry people of the Garden County for very reasonable prices. 

What's different about their menu however, is that they have an impressive vegetarian selection, as well as many salads for those of you looking to stay trim.

2. The Lighthouse Restaurant, Wicklow Town

The food in this restaurant is nothing short of outstanding, with fish reigning supreme in this Wicklow Town hotspot. The key to their success is a small menu, with half a dozen dishes or so, done to perfection. 

And as for their specials, they're worth keeping an eye on too.

Their meals are hand-crafted, reasonably priced and unbelievably tasty. And, not to mention, good for you! What a time to be alive. 

A deadly way to treat yourself after doing the Bray to Greystones walk. The perfect recipe for a great day out.

4. The Beach House, Greystones

Pub food, done right. 

Situated in the picturesque harbour town of Greystones, Co. Wicklow, The Beach House was first established in 1850 and has been family owned ever since. 

A favourite with locals and tourists alike, The Beach House nails it in terms of food, drink and all things good craic. They also provide live music on weekends.

5. The Strawberry Tree, Aughrim

The only certified organic restaurant in Ireland - The Strawberry Tree's menu changes daily, as it draws from the surroundings of the Brooklodge Hotel. 

Using natural ingredients seasonally and exclusively, the chef forbids “conventional foods” from the kitchen.

It's an experience, and you should definitely try it.

7. The Perch, Baltinglass 

This quirky hidden gem is a place you'll want to return to time, and time again.

The interior is super funky, not what you'd usually find in the countryside at all, and the staff are just lovely. Their customer service will never let you down. 

From delicious coffees and juice drinks to ice cream filled doughnuts – The Perch is a delight.
