I recently had a date night with my husband in Kirbys and from start to finish it was an amazing experience. The food was fantastic and the manageress Hannah put a smile on each customers face , such a professional hostess. This definitely will be our new no.1 spot.

Thanks to Vicky, Hannah and Patsy for being excellent hosts for our college class party last Thursday night. They were very attentive yet not intrusive. Also credits to the chefs who managed to serve excellent food despite catering for a bustling packed out restaurant. Kirbys restaurant also provides a classy yet comfortable and cosy atmosphere.

I have a wonderful night out with my husband recently. The food was really mouthwatering. My husband is coeliac and this was not problem at all. The waitress even brought him, his own butter dish. We had a delightful meal. It was very reasonable. I will return to Kirbys again soon.

We had to eat her because my name is the sMe as the restaurant. So it was just for the laugh. But the food was scrumtrulescent! Seafood trio, fish and chips, and the Eatin Mess were amazing! Great drink selection as well! It seemed be a nice chill sort of place. No stuffy atmosphere but still classy. Stop in! And... More

Most of the restaurants required reservations. This one was just enough off the main drag that we were able to get right in. Great food. Service was good. Would definitely consider eating here again.

Great care was taken of an informal gathering of some of the Salerno secondary school leaving cert class of 1975. Staff were very pleasant, professional, efficient and accommodating.
