The Wild Honey Inn is a gastropub and hotel in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare, Republic of Ireland. It was awarded Michelin star in 2017.[2]

The restaurant is owned by head chef Aidan McGrath and his partner Kate Sweeney.[3]

The restaurant is housed in the former hotel Kincora House, that has a history dating back to the 1860s.[4] McGrath and Sweeney bought the building in 2009 and participated with it in the RTÉ show At Your Service. In that show they got advice from hotelier Francis Brennan about how to run their gastropub and hotel.[5]
