lovely food

Very welcoming, cosy, clean establishment. Very busy but staff were excellent, helpful n not overbearing. Had delicious salmon en croute. Friend had chicken maryland. Only thing she didnt like on it was the battered apple. Definitely recommend.

I have lived in Drogheda for a number of years and found that The Monasterboice Inn would never let you down. Friendly professional service with a menu of Irish food. If there is no table free you can wait in the lounge and not stuck at an uncomfortable bar with people passing you all the time. Prices suit the food... More

Went as a family. Didn't think anywhere in town would have space on a Sunday afternoon. Popped in and yes a table is free, food very fast which lead to believe not proper fresh. Still steal and kids too. Coffee afterwards lovely. Pints at weeknights very relaxed and much better feeling.

Have lived on the continent for many years but when I`m back home on holidays my mam and dad always insist on dragging me and my family down to good old Donnegans for a meal. I really don`t want to let them down but I have been so disappointed with this restaurant so many times that I thought it fair... More

Very large, varied menu available day & night. Always especially good for steaks. Service from all staff is always excellent. Have sampled late breakfast/brunch, lunch and evening meals and always very satisfied with everything. Suits all family members. May need to book for lunch at weekends....so popular. But, if you're prepared to wait (if you haven't booked), you will be... More

Always use this venue when we have visitors, you can go anytime of the day, the staff are attentive, the service is excellent, food is meticulously presented, cannot fault the Monasterboice Inn, it does not matter if you just call in for coffee, or a meal, the staff make you feel very welcome.

A party of 6, including a babe in arms, we were welcomed to the Inn and treated like royalty. Although 3 of us weren't that hungry and only had soup, and 4 of us were on the New Year Wagon, the service was as attentive as if we had been ordering the most expensive items on the menu. The seafood... More
