Absolutely wonderful!

We stopped off at Shannonbridge especially to dine at The Old Fort; their reputation is great in the area. We were not disappointed. We moored up at 6ish and after a quick pint in Lukers Bar (great old bar you must check out) we trotted across the fortified bridge to enjoy a meal off the boat. The... read more

A fine meal. The cheesecake dessert was the best I've ever eaten! Light and fluffy, amazing taste. Entire meal had terrific presentation.

I visited recently while on a Shannon water cruise. Food was excellent but I have to say I expected a little more from the decor inside and I felt the place lacked a bit of atmosphere. This place with a little TLC could very easily become a 5 Star !

Nice location inside an old fort with nice interior (dim lights). Friendly staff. The dishes were okay (good prawns with bitter salad and sauce) to very good (duck).

I arrived a few minutes early with another close friend and sat to have a drink while we awaited the remains of the group This restaurant has been quite busy since... More

Don't miss this great find, the meals are beautiful, well presented with a great selection and a set menu of 4 courses for only €24 if you wish, less courses available too for less money... The great atmosphere is set in an old fort, the staff are just brilliant, very polite, genuinely caring and attentive. Well done all - you... More

A rainy night on the Shannon promised little, however the old fort, cheered the evening. Excellent service, terrific menu and a great food. An old fort overlooking the bridge over the Shannon, what a fantastic venue. Just great we went back twice in the week both great. No complaints.

My only suggestion is that as... More
