The breakfast service was exactly what I expected: good food with very friendly and efficient staff! However, dining at the George V was quite frustrating for me. I had to wait a long time for every single course. I was practically neglected for several minutes after I finished dessert. March is not a high season month, the restaurant was not... More

The room is lovely and definitely worth booking for one night on your trip. Service was excellent and they even sang a happy birthday at our table. Menu can go to 5 courses if you want. Wine choices are excellent and theres a wide selection. We simply loved it and it was a great space for a memorable birthday dinner

No, the George V was like a royal dining room in your beautiful castle! We had several people waiting on us, and there was nothing they wouldn't do to... More

We opted for the five course dinner and were really happy with all options - group of 4. The soufflés for desert were really good as were a range of mains. But just as important the staff are truly excellent. Martin and his team are how you want service to be - friendly and very efficient. Nothing is a hassle... More

I had the best Beef fillet I have eaten , cooked to perfection . If you are a cheese lover save room for the cheese course....all Irish cheeses... More

The graceful setting, with rich, panelled walls and twinkling Waterford Crystal chandeliers bestows a grand sense of occasion. Our resident pianist plays softly in the background while you relax and enjoy exceptional dishes from the kitchen of acclaimed Chef Philippe Farineau, recently awarded two rosettes by the AA Hospitality Awards, combined with much loved recipes of Beatrice Tollman and complemented by a fine selection of wines from Chief Sommelier, Robert Bowe.
