Sol Oriens is our Steakhouse & Italian restaurant located at the entrance to the resort only 3 minute walk from the hotel. It features an open plan kitchen with authentic pizza oven. An informal restaurant with a classical Italian style serving steaks, pizza, pastas and salads. Sol Oriens is the name of a horse which won the Irish Derby in 1941. He was trained on the Heath in Portlaoise by the very famous trainer Col. AJ Blake and ridden by George Wells. The Heath & The Curragh are located a short drive from the resort. The Italian connection is that Sol is a Roman deity, the unconquered sun god, and a huge golden statue of him stood beside the Roman Colosseum. Sol was always shown with a radiate crown, the spikes representing the rays of the sun. This is the same kind of crown the emperors were shown wearing, and this was no coincidence. The unconquered sun represented the unconquered emperor, and as Sol Oriens, the morning sun in the east, represented the rising fortunes of the emperor.
