My wife and I landed in for a meal. Word around town was that Mo would be able provide a great vegan meal for my wife while I had the steak. Without dragging the review out, the steak was melt in your mouth quality and came with enough sides to feed a small army. My wife had a great bean... More

We stumbled across Nirvana and were quite surprised on the menu and the atmosphere. It's not your traditional Irish stop, has a European flair with well prepared food. Nice portions. My husband had the duck and I had the chicken done in a leak and mushroom reduction. Yummm. Priced reasonably. Service was personable and attentive

We were looking for dinner Sunday pm and stumbled across Nirvana. Wonderfully prepared items with a local and a European flair. The pan fried chicken done in leeks and mushrooms and the duck dish were outstanding. Nice portions, great flavors. Hats off to the chef! Unexpected gourmet, reasonably priced.

Did not know about this restaurant as it is not on Main Street. The staff were friendly. The Sunday lunch menu was very acceptable. The main course was adequate. The desserts were definitely home made which is unusual. I enjoyed the bread and butter pudding. The price for the meal for three was approximately €60 which was very good.

Had the good fortune to dine at Nirvana as part of a large school group. Despite the size of our group, the staff served us efficiently - while possessing a friendly and welcoming attitude. My dinner and dessert were top notch. Entertainment was provided by two young and brilliant Irish step dancers, Caoimhe and Eva. Their performance was the icing... More

Excellent and consistent Sunday lunch. Had roast beef which was extremely tender and delicious. I love vegetables and often find these to be an afterthought but not so here. Nice selection and perfectly cooked. Will be back again and again.

I have eat here on busy periods such as new years eve and new years day. Both did not disappoint. Everything was very tasty and the setting itself is lovely.

9 Adults, 5 Children & 3 Babies were made feel very welcome and given plenty of space and time to eat at a 6pm sitting. The staff couldn't have been nicer and the food was delicious. We'll all be back and I would definitely recommend Nirvana to all my friends and family.
