Great place, nice people and very friendly staff. I had a long day and when I walked on to the bar, it felt like I was local. The bar man (who I do not know his name) recommended a good wine and told me about the city and just small chat but was worth it

We were staying at the hotel, so this was an easy choice for dinner our first night in Limerick. The wine list was affordable and had a few really nice options. We tried a few starters and a pizza, which were ok. Nothing too exciting. Everything was slightly salty but not too bad. But the lasagna bolognese was INCREDIBLE. Strange... More

Took my fiancee to the George to mark four months until our wedding. Brilliant, casual atmosphere, great service, and high quality, well-cooked food that we couldn't get enough of. Their coctails were great, too! Ended up going there for lunch the next day when we were in town and had another great experience.

Always head here for a coffee or lunch with the kids. Great value & staff always friendly. Think it may have changed hands recently. Hope to visit soon & see if everything still as good.

At the moment the George Boutique Restaurant Hotel is going through some interesting changes, what with the appointment of Vincenzo, a native of Naples in Italy, to oversee some new items on the menu and gauge how diners respond to them. But he's gentle about it. For example: yesterday, they had a couple of specials, and one was a starter... More
