We had a wonderful meal here, in a charming, eclectic restaurant. We can highly recommend the steak, the crab claws and the chicken wings. Impressive wine list too. Extremely friendly staff. No hesitation in recommending this fantastic restaurant.

Visited the smokehouse as a Saturday lunchtime treat, menu looked appetizing. I ordered grilled halloumi, beetroot, green bean and peanut salad which I thought would be a delicious combination of ingredients but unfortunately the salad was drenched in melted butter so much so it started to turn my stomach halfways through my meal and I couldn't finish it. The waiting... More

From the artful bathrooms to the eccentric decor to the interestingly presented dishes our family of four was delighted by this restaurant. We ordered the venison stew (my husband liked it very much, the veg soup (my daughter liked it a lot), the hamburger (very satisfying and the fries were great!), the filet with baked potato (expertly cooked!). The goat... More

Myself and a few friends are here recently. We walked in without a reservation and although they were busy managed to find us a table upstairs. Staff were lovely and friendly. Service was prompt. The decor and music are really different and feel kind of home-y. Starters were huge and delicious as was my friend's burger. Only disappointment was the... More

Smokehouse was by far one of the best places we went to while in Ireland! The atmosphere is unique, quaint, beautiful, and relaxing!!! We had appetizers, soup, meals, and dessert and all were amazing after amazing! We did not have to wait long for our food, or drinks. Our service here was better than any restaurant we went to in...
