Red Beautiful Poppies

My husband and I regularly visit Poppies' as a treat to ourselves. The combination of friendly staff and fresh, homecooked food, is unsurpassed. This establishment is carrying on the tradition of excellence started in Poppies of Enniskerry. Well worth a visit and we wwill be back.

I really like it here and have been here many times. The specials and the menu are always changing and the service is always with a smile so I would pick here on a regular basis for that very reason. They also don't seem to treat "vegetarian" like some dietry requirements and have plenty of options for everyone regardless of... More

When in Ireland my friends and I swim at the 40 foot and afterwards go for breakfast....Poppies is our choice of venue. We have visited here many times and always found staff, food and service beyond reproach. They are accommodating (I don't like rashers) I prefer bacon so they will adjust the menu for me.

My girlfriend had a plain ham (one slice of ham) and butter sandwich (untoasted) and was charged e5.50. She was hopping mad!! The side salad consisted of washed leaves WITHOUT any other salad (tomatoe/coleslaw/vingerette) even though it was requested. This price charged was excessive and it seems priced at the level of a toasted alternative??? I like the atmosphere in... More

Having some home renovations done and 'popped' in here for the full Irish breakfast - excellent value with high quality food and on our doorstep. The Hungarian lady chef knows what she is doing with a very Irish country kitchen ambiance - worth a visit.
