a group of 34 men returning from Armagh to Dublin stopped for evening tea and sandwiches. cost was very reasonable, service was terrific, friendly and helpful. we were given a private area, and even served drinks while we were having our food. good place to stop, and easy off the motorway. no problem letting us have a sing along. well...

Stopped off on way from airport. The staff were very helpful and friendly and seemed to be busy and knew what they were doing. Kids menu had a good choice of fresh food. We just had a main course as it was late and needed to get back on the motorway! Would recommend this restaurant.

Always fantastic food with amazing staff, I was "party" to a celebration of the latest venture whereby the Monasterboice Inn are guaranteeing the best local food available - they are doing this by rearing their own beef and using it throughout their menus. Other than a trip to the local abattoir and our local butcher, Ray Lambs, the only miles... More

I stop at The Monasterboice Inn any time I'm travelling from my home in Belfast to Dublin, which is pretty regularly. It's only a short run off the motorway and easy to slip back on. but I can assure all readers well worth the effort. The food, whether it's a tasty breakfast, lunch or Dinner is consistently excellent and the... More

I have come here on many occasions and having signed up for Tripadvisor its best I share to all travellers who have never had the pleasure of dining at the Monasterboice inn! The restaurant is set in the heart of Monasterboice (exit 11 coming Northbound and 10 southbound from the M1 Motorway), although you have to take an exit of... More

I first visited the Monasterboice Inn 50years ago as an Electronic technician, I remember it well the lunch was 10shillings and 6pence, our company allowance was only 10shillings so I paid the 6pence myself. The food was great, value and quantity excellent. Over those years I have been many times to the Inn and the food and quality was excellent,... More

We made a booking for a family event over Easter as we expected it to be bustier than normal. It was a waste of time making a booking as we had to wait in a corridor for at least half an hour before being seated. Why take a booking if you are going to honour it? Instead of being able... More

My family and I come here regularly over the years the standards of the food has deteriorated even though I paid top dollar for the food I feel as though it was not fresh and It was just not up to scratch the attitude of the manager to his staff in front of customers was disgraceful.
