The ‘gBK’ (George Bar & Kitchen) provides a refreshing and unique dining experience for the city. Our lunch and dinner menus offer something for everyone in a relaxed environment. All our dishes are cooked to order and freshly prepared in house by our extremely talented kitchen team. All our food is locally sourced ensuring freshness to the table for all diners.Bridging the gap between a casual café and a formal restaurant, the gBK has grown in popularity in Limerick city since opening in 2006.The gBK opens its doors daily from 7.00am to the wonderful smells of full Irish breakfast & freshly ground coffee, you can have a stack of toast & jam or a healthy bowl of porridge or why not a warm muffin ‘to-go’ with your freshly brewed tea or coffee to set you up for the day ahead.Check out our lunch menu which is available 12.30pm -3.30pm daily. The gBK restaurant offers great food and drinks at affordable prices in an informal, pleasant atmosphere in the heart of Limerick city.Here in the gBK you can sample some of the best dishes in Limerick, from our locally sourced Sirloin Steaks, succulent Sea-bass, our specially stone-baked pizzas to an Irish Stew from our Chefs’ own family recipe. This Boutique Hotel Limerickis the ideal location for dining in Limerick.What you will find is a very relaxed and informal approach to dining in style. The restaurant area is beautifully welcoming to all with open arms. Whether you are looking for an intimate setting, somewhere to entertain work colleagues or simply dining out with your friends, George has it all with window tables to watch the world go by or secluded booths for true romantics. “It’s such things that keep people coming back time after time” says the well established and friendly George team.Accompanied by a small but beautiful selection of new World wines there is always something to suit every taste & budget.

Had a great experience at the The George Boutique Hotels' Bar & Restaurant recently after taking part in the Great Limerick Run. Despite the restaurant & bar area being really busy due to the event, the staff could not have looked after us better. We had a group of runners & supporters totalling 15 adults plus 6 kids and 2...

Our night began with a Peroni Beer a Cosmo (best in town) and an enjoyable conversation with the barman Micheal who I must say impressed us so much with his knowledge of beers and ales. This gentleman even had us beer taste which was a nice touch. This is not common in a barman but in this barman you could... More

Stayed here, and had the complimentary breakfast, Very similar to other European hotel breakfasts, but liked that you actually ordered your hot portion, and could still browse the cold stuff. Others in my group got to ordering exactly what they wanted, not what was offered - less things than what was listed on the menu for example.
