My B and B recommeded this place so thought I would try it out. It is such a cute place with great home-cooked food. The view of the abbey across the street is also not to be missed. The soup and bread is quite filling and the apple crumble was one of the best I've ever had.

We went here on recommendation as we were staying at The Dangan Lodge Cottages, cannot fault it, food is fantastic & very fairly priced. Free WiFi is a bonus as there was none available where we was staying, so that made my teenage daughter very happy. Staff very friendly, we called in one day just for a drink & found... More

The quaint little town of Quin is a not to be missed jewel not far from Shannon Airport in the perfect County Clare. I recently had the pleasure of returning for my third visit....two weeks with side trips to Belfast and Dingle. It was the perfect home base....in great part due to The Abbey Tavern which was just steps away... More

The Tripadvisor ranking is misleading- says #1 B&B in Quin (near Shannon Airport)- but Quin isn't really a bona-fide town, its more a few blocks of buildings and an old Abbey in ruins- mostly cemetery, on a small raceway (roadway) that seems unusually busy for being out in the middle of noplace. The "B&B" are 5 rooms overhead the centuries... More

Has a lovely Sunday Lunch here with my family in law, the food as always was spot on - clean and comfortable restaurant. The staff are friendly. And there is lovely views of Quin Abbey well worth a trip around.

Large but efficient pub restaurant with a great menu and fabulous food. Fish is very good and chips are great. No need to book and a large car park. Free wi-fi is adequate. We found the staff amusing and friendly and the bar area fine for dining but a restaurant is available.

I stayed at The Abbey Tavern with a group of friends while we competed at an equestrian event nearby. On checking in, I asked about breakfast times and was told "you won't get breakfast here before 8.30". I told the owner that our competition times would be early and that 8.30am was too late for us. He then said that,... More

We stayed here for 2 nights during our stay in Ireland. It was a classic, Irish warm welcome when we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. As it happened we ate in both nights and the food was delicious - huge serves and on piping hot plates. Breakfast each day was also the same and more than enough. Mark... More
