Affordable and pleasant

The restaurant offers many good options for food and drink. A wide variety of typical Irish drinks makes it a must go. The hotel next to it is served by it as well.

We followed Rick Steves' suggestion and had dinner at the Elwood Bar & Grill. We sat in the bar area. Wait staff was very friendly, and the service was great. All four of us enjoyed our meals.

Staying at the Forster Court Hotel I had dinner in Elwoods a number of times during my visit. The restaurant offered a good variety of dishes at reasonable prices in a pleasant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive and I particularly liked the seafood dishes.

Went looking for food near Eyre Square and found Elwood's. I am cautious of hotels, but they came through. My stew was great and my wife's seafood chowder was very good. Service was friendly. The atmosphere is just average.

This is part of the Forster Hotel and so we booked for our first night which was so convenient. It was a lovely relaxed, quiet atmosphere and the food was good however my friend's custard on her dessert was cold so she didn't finish it. Service was attentive and it was good value.

We stopped in here for lunch and got the seafood chowder. It was served with brown bread and butter and was chock full of salmon and smoked salmon and potatoes. The broth was creamy and flavorful with just the right consistency. We split an order of chips and this became a very satisfying lunch. They have a nice selection of... More
