Great food here

Stayed in Kilrush for two nights and ate here both nights. The service was excellent two lovely young ladies who waited on the tables. The dishes were a good choice and reasonable in price. Food was excellent and arrived hot and tasty. Good choice to eat if in town.

Very busy when we arrived but we were greeted and seated by one of the waitresses almost immediately. My husband and I both chose to have Seafood as the menu stated Fresh Crab Cakes and Wild Atlantic Crab Claws. Delicious. Portions were generous . We had 2 lovely Irish coffees instead of dessert. Great atmosphere. Hope to return to Kilrush... More

Lovely warm atsmophere in this well appointed rest. located in a busy historic town.The food is well presented and served with a smile and the food here is mouth watering and so tasty. I have to say the fish dishes are a winner and all locally soursed.Looks there is a good local and tourist here.

We landed here without high expectations, just looking for a meal in a quiet town. We were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, nicely presented. But the meal was really capped by the young woman who served us. Very personable and engaging, she made it a great experience. Sorry that we did not get her name.

The staff were lovely and efficient. My partner got the cod and chips which he said were delicious. I got the toasted sandwich which was not on the menu but was made without a fuss
