Ate here on Friday night 23rd, booked through the website, and got email confirmation straight away! Had booked for a surprise birthday meal, which the staff all played along with! The food was amazing, had the 3 course meal and we loved all of it. Beautifully presented and just the right portion size! Our waiter, I think Valentino? Was fabulous,... More

We only had drinks and dessert here, but we really liked the scenery - a former church transformed into a restaurant/bar, which even had live music when we were there on an early Sunday evening. Service, however, was horribly slow and paid no attention to us at all... Would've spent much more money there if they had been a bit... More

Was recommended the restaurant/ bar by my sister in law. She was right, great ambience, great food and ended staying there longer than expected. Definitely a place to enjoy a meal in a great setting.

18 of us went to The Church on the 18th Jan. The food was well cooked and decent portions.The prices were about right for the quality of food. The girl who served us was friendly and attentive. The atmosphere on the night was enjoyable although the traditional Irish music was a bit more Clannad than Dubliners. The venue is something... More

Was recommended here by The Ashling hotel where we were staying. It was as if they read my mind on what I wanted in a restaurant. From the moment we stepped in the lovely host Jess found us a table upstairs straight away. We ordered off the 2 course set menu. Managed to change a few things (due to me... More
