A Rare Find in Shannonbridge

Shannonbridge is a one-street "town" where nice people live but where there is little for the visitor. That is, except for the beautiful River Shannon, the marina and the Old Fort. Historically, the Fort is interesting, built to protect the crossing over the river. However, today it is there... read more

Called in on a Tuesday afternoon because Parkers is in a beautiful spot on the river, has loads of car parking space and is an impressive historic building. Service was immediate and efficient. Starter and main courses were exceptional in all senses. We were very happy to have stopped there and I recommend the restaurant to locals and tourists. Good... More

We stopped off at Shannonbridge especially to dine at The Old Fort; their reputation is great in the area. We were not disappointed.

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).
