We found this restaurant last year after a day out with family and it was fantastic. Again this year we found it again and thought let's give it a try. We pulled into the car park and it was very busy. Upon entering we said how many we needed a table for and giving menus to order. The lady took... More

I have eaten here several times and always get the steak. The steak is not as good as it was a few years ago. But it won't stop me returning. A bit pricey because of having to pay for all the sides.

Decided to try the new bar in the monasterboice inn last week ( or Donegans as its known locally ). The bar has been transformed from the old one with exquisite decor . It has the same menu as before which we found a bit disapointing as this surely was an opportunity to run it as a bistro/tapas bar and... More

Our group of twelve golfers sampled a lot of restaurants, and this place had the best steak of the week. We got straight off the bus from playing golf and were seated promptly. The four course dinner had ample choices including a delicious 8 oz sirloin. The wine list was adequate and fairly priced. Service was prompt and friendly.

This eatery is located off the M1 between Drogheda and Dundalk. You have to leave the motorway to get to the spot, but the diversion is well worth it. We visited mid week and the place was buzzing which is always a good sign. My fiance being very agreeable went for exactly the same starter, main course and dessert. We... More

Whenever driving on the M1 motorway, if it is anyway near lunch or dinner time, I like to drop into the Monasterboice Inn where the welcome is alway friendly, the atmosphere excellent and the food both good and fairly priced. Over a twenty year period, I have never been disappointed. However, tonight's experience was not a very happy one. Driving... More
