Centrally located in Tullamore, the hotel provides good food at reasonable prices. I ate here several times and could not fault it.

I tried more things there and everything was so delicious. But my favourite is the seafood tagliatelle. It is So creamy, soft and well seasoned. I just recommend this place to everyone.

It is important that I clarify there are two restaurants in the Bridge House Hotel, the Charleville Restaurant and Balcone. I have eaten in the Charleville Restaurant many times and it never fails to impress, it is a shame that Balcone is associated with this professional restaurant which delivers a high standard of food and customer service. I ate in... More
