I was recently at the Wicklow Heather with 9 other people and the service was still fast and the food was of good quality, and even though the restaurant was exceptionally busy that day, they still managed to tend to our needs. The food was enjoyable and it was a little bit expensive but worth it.

Portions were big & extra gravy wasn't a problem . Leave room for desert as we all had... More

I had the Cajun chicken which was amazing although it was described as been served on a bed of stir fried vegetables and it... More

Another lovely visit. Given it was easter Sunday, it was very busy so I was relieved we had pre booked. A few disappointed they couldn't get in as it was so busy. Waiting staff were fantastic as always, attentive, friendly and polite. Will be back again.. Suggest to anyone going here at weekends to book ahead.

We went there for brunch and the scones were the best I've ever had! They were warm out of the oven and the jam was delightful! I was especially pleased that it was all homemade! The staff are lovely and the seating outdoors is brilliant! Big thumbs up for me!

Visited here for a family occasion. Arrived and had to wait 20 minutes so they could literally squeeze us in. Two other tables were asked to move bag and baggage and tables to set us up. We even had to ask one of the customers at a table to stand up to let us in. The waitress was excellent. She... More

We stayed in a B&B nearby when we visited Wicklow National Park and saw this restaurant as we were about to check in. Our B&B recommended it for a meal. One of the things that stood out was they offer a free taxi service to and from your hotel (I presume providing it's close by) which I have never seen... More
