Had my first experience of the dining room restaurant last weekend and have to say it was one of de nicest meals I've had in a long time. I settled for the chicken ceased salad as my starter and it was absolutely divine, feeling quiet full after such a big portion I opted for de pork fillet as my main,... 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

I love this place! So much so, that I take my family and friends who visit me there because the food is consistently delicious; well portioned and excellent value for money. Last but not least, the table service is fantastic. Willie usually serves us - he's great!

I could not fault anything. The starter, main course and desserts are all really tasty and very reasonably priced. The staff are very welcoming and friendly

From start to finish we were lavished with welcome, charm and excellent food and the final “Irish Coffee” made this experience a 5* standard. The Staff are warm and welcoming, the choice of food endless and the taste, Wow! William took care of us like we were old friends and could not do enough for us. Thanks to the Dining... More
