Lovely early bird in beautiful setting

My family and I ate in the Rising Tide last night, it was a place I had been meaning to try for a long time after hearing positive reviews and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. We all availed of the early bird offer which was very good value at €25 for three courses or €20 for two. It... read more

We celebrated our baby boys christening day at the Rising Tide Glounthaune in August. We planned to do a bbq outdoors but due to poor weather we had the option to stay indoors and have all the bottom floor for our event. This worked out very well as we had a large number of adults and children and the back... More

Pleasant and friendly ambiance on a Sunday evening. 4 adults & 4 children. Used (mainly) early bird menu. Could see no price reduction from main, just reduced portion sizes. Black pudding starter was excellent. Unfortunately most of us choose fish pie (Reheated and uninspiring). Sting came with the childrens. Two (small) bowls of plain pasta, one (small) burger and a...

A large group of us ate here recently. Most of us had food from the early bird menu. The black pudding starter was good but the fishcake was mostly potato. Out of 7 mains the monkfish special was the only good dish. The sea bass special was completely overcooked, the fish pie was mostly potato. The mussels portion was big... More

Family (4 adults) just finished a fantastic meal at Rising Tide. All of our appetizers were delicious and large in size (fish cake, blank pudding, soupx2). Entrees were flavorful, hot, a generour in portion size. Four of us got in without a reservation on a Sunday night (early). However, once we were seated people that showed up without reservations had... More

Spent a few hours here recently for dinner and found the experience a bit under-whelming. Been a few years since we had eaten here and decided to support local and try again. Service was very good and helpful but the food appeared and tasted a bit ordinary. A burger and a fish dish were had by us both and we... More

Great lively atmosphere. Staff were very accommodating even though they were fully booked. Staff were helpful with kids. Food was very nice. Follows the key rule of keeping menu short and doing it well. Only perhaps an extra dish or two would provide more variation without going over board. Overall though a good meal and pleasant experience.

We had lunch here on a Saturday following numerous very positive recommendations. As a result I was probably expecting too much of the place before we even got there. The restaurant's location is a huge bonus, very picturesque with a quiet country village feel even though its only twenty minutes from the City. Our food was standard. I had a... More
