I was part of a Senior Citizens bus tour which stopped off here for a meal and the service was outstanding. One of our most senior ladies was feeling the cold and asked for soup in addition to our set meal, this was produced within minutes and served with charm. Even a request for wrapping up the leftovers for the... More

We had dinner in the Monasterboice last night for the first time in years. I have many fond memories of the place as it was the go to place for food on the way home from the races with my dad, but with the advent of the motorway, it has been somewhat off the radar. I’m delighted to report that... More

We were just passing by around 11am and decided to stop in for a late breakfast/brunch. Restaurant hadn't opened yet but the lounge was open for breakfast. Food was outstanding with good sized portions. Service was great and atmosphere was like someone's family room in the states,very casual and comfortable. Would definitely stop again if I in the area.

What a great place to eat just off the M1, not in the middle of a town. Parking just outside the door. The staff are so helpful and friendly. It's child friendly with a menu to suit all the family. I won't be using fast food drive throughs when I pass by this way again.

Had the most gorgeous lamb, gluten free gravy, no fuss or bother, staff really friendly and well versed on the gluten free options. All in all we had no complaints, would... More

Easy to get to from motorway going north but not so easy going south. Food very good , service very friendly . Asked for something not on the menu and was told no problem & got it. Service going the extra mile.
