Food was very fresh and was well cooked, well prepared and well served. Overall a most enjoyable experience. Breakfast was a bit average however. Nothing very wrong but a... More

My husband and our 4 kids had dinner here for my birthday. It was the best meal I had in Ireland, I had the Kerry Lamb, my husband and sons had the filet and the girls had the kids fish, everyone raved. The service is incredible and the food just as good.
