Hannigan’s is the restaurant within the International Hotel. The food was very good and the service excellent. It had standard Irish fare on the menu which was served warm and swiftly. The restaurant was decorated tastefully and was tidy. They had a nice fire going that added ambiance to the experience.

Menu selection was good, portions good size, and food was good. The restaurant is adjacent to the bar. While the bar can get a bit noisy, not much of the noise came through to the restaurant. I recommend a table towards the back of the restaurant.

Good variety of food choices and very large portions. Relaxed environment, great after a long day of touring or traveling. Recommended by locals and visitors. We went around 7pm, it was quite busy and only had to wait a short time to get a table.

Although we were a group of 12 and could not all sit together, we were escorted to the dining area in a very prompt manner. Service was excellent. Everyone ordered a different entree and no one was disappointed. The food was excellent, arrived in a quick manner, still hot and very tasty. The staff was even very accommodating to figure... More
