Hotel restaurants used to be the only eateries open on a Sunday in Ireland. Gargantuan and indistinguishable carveries like the mountain ranges in a museum’s model display of historic battles — marble-hard, snow-white bricks of ice cream still linger in childhood memory like an inescapable malevolence, a terror which has left a deep and lifelong prejudice.

They still exist, despite the leaps and bounds made by chefs and restaurateurs across Ireland in the last 20 years. But they are thankfully in decline.
