I recently ate in The Dining room celebrating my brothers graduation. The atmosphere was really relaxed and the staff so friendly. The food was top notch and for such a great price. I would highly recommend this to anyone for a treat, family occasion or a night out.

We celebrated a milestone birthday of mine with family at this restaurant on Sunday. We dined early at 5.30pm and there were 16 of us in total. Their early bird menu is superb value at €18.50 per head for 2 courses or €22.50 for 3. Portions are simply huge - I had the brie starter and the duck main course... More

Had dinner here with 4 friends, food was excellent and extremely reasonably priced at €22.50 for 3 courses. Nice atmosphere and very efficient and friendly staff. Extensive choice of starters and mains, definitely something for everyone. Highly recommend.

Some of my colleagues and I decided to go for a night out and decided on a meal in The Dining Room. We had all heard really good things about it but it was way better than we had imagined. The food was fabulous - huge portions and plenty of everything. We really could not fault it. The price of... More

So, on a whim, my partner and I decided to check out The Dining Room, as we'd been meaning to for a while. We were expecting fairly standard fare, but we were pleasantly surprised! For a starter, I had the Doolin delight, a lovely little pot of prawns, mussels, and clams in a garlic and white wine sauce, with delicious... More

I must admit, I am shocked to read the previous review. I have eaten in this restaurant on several occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the night each time, which is why I return repeatedly......I know I am guaranteed an enjoyable meal. The staff could not be more helpful, they endeavor to make your meal and evening a... More

When I questioned this they didn't have the slightest idea what sweet potato was... More

Dear Customer Just read your comments and would like to clear up a few points for you , seeing as you did remark you are a Chef. Firstly you described the restaurant as a Rip-Off. I hardly think that a quality meal such as you received could be described as such, €12.50 for Main- Course and Dessert delivered to your... More

Recently a friend invited me to the Dining Room for dinner. She assured me the food was excellent, she was right. I opted for the fish of the day which was cod with crab claws, it was wow, my friend had the stuffed chicken fillet, it was also excellent. The starters were excellent as were the deserts and the coffee... More

Hadn't visited in a number years and we were so impressed ourSunday lunch that we returned a fortnight for evening meal. We were not disappointed. The menu has a little bit of everything. The Indian twist on the traditional Caesar salad is great. The homemade chips are to die for. O'Hara's craft beer available which is always nice to see.... More
