I've been to Lock 13 a few times lately for dinner, and it's always great. The food is tasty and there's a good selection for all tastes and it's good value too. I also love the craft beer selection. The staff was always friendly and efficient.

This would be great going just for a drink or just for food. We all order off the two courses for €18 menu and ordered the burger and only one of the four of us came anywhere near finishing it, great quality and a huge portion - what more would you want? Top beer selection I would have loved to... More

Called in on Easter Sunday and was accommodated as we had not booked ahead. We ordered our starters and mains and asked for our sons food to be brought with the starters as he is a toddler. We received our starters and had to feed our son from this as his food didn't arrive. We then after a short wait... More

We wanted a main course and visited this restaurant and happily were given a table straight away. I ordered the chicken supreme and the boss had the tiger prawn salad as a main course. Then we decided we would share... More

Best gastro pub in Kildare. There is a really good choice of craft beer and gin. The staff are very knowledgeable. The food is excellent and there is loads of room. They have a see through brewing area and bottle their own beer. Don't miss a visit to this little gem!

I've visited lock 13 several times in the last six months. Each time with different groups ... i.e. family, young children, groups of adults. It has always been really enjoyable, delicious food, great staff and with a lovely relaxed feel. The chicken curry is the nicest curry ever, and I do mean ever. It has a bouquet of tastes, spicy,...
