We went through Cahir after visiting the Rock of Cashel. After a side trip to Cahir Castle (do it!), we wanted lunch and found this restaurant. Not great, not terrible, not memorable. Just OK. I wouldn't recommend it as a destination, but if you're passing through and just want to grab something to get by, it's fine.

A recommended stop for much needed breakfast stop. A great village to explore and small market on a Saturday, the day we visited. A great Irish breakfast served by lovely staff. Thank you.

My husband and I went here for breakfast on a Monday morning. The breakfast menu is very poor so we just had a scone each, tea and coffee. Scones and tea - lovely. Coffee was dreadful. The downstairs is dated and not so clean. Needs a makeover badly. The toilets are upstairs and the upstairs seating area is like a... More

Lovely view but not clean. Food was a mixed bag. One of our party didn't enjoy it. Lovely view but windows were dirty! Just needs a bit of tlc.

Okay place for dinner. Quite busy when we were there. Staff polite and food okay both quality and price. But no toilet paper or soap in toilets, despite letting staff know. A few other bits and pieces such really stop it being rated a good place to eat. A little more care and attention to the details and I would... More
