Surroundings and staff fantastic. It's lovely have this kinda attention from front of house, pleasant without being over bearing, wine (fairly priced and with some option) as topped up as needed and can honestly say some of the best service have ever witnessed. Foie gras terrine starter for example though was with great flavour but so 1980s haute cuisine esq... More

We were staying at Waterford and dined at the Munster room, all up very good, only negative point was the limited number of wines available by the glass. Service was very good, always about but not on top of you. Food was a delight.

Short menu so choose food I wouldn't normally pick. Scallops with braised pork belly followed by monkfish with chicken wings. Very unusual but worked perfectly, not to mention the 'amuse bouche' of pea mousse with wasabi and strawberry sorbet between courses. Service also very good. Italian waiter, not ours, stopped every time to play with our 8 mth old daughter.... More

Recently visited The Munster Room for Sunday lunch for a special family occasion. It was our first visit but most certainly wont be our last. Wonderful, tasty, exquistely presented food in a calm, atmospheric setting. Am looking forward to trying an evening dinner sometime in the near future.

Waterford Castle is a fabulous venue. Perfect for a special occassion or to treat someone. The staff are very friendly and courteous. The food is amazing.The fillet steak is sourced locally and is always cooked to perfection. The passion fruit sorbet tingles the tastebuds but keep some space for dessert...The chocolate/pecan brownie is to die for!

Visiting Waterford on business from the states, I took some colleagues here for a business dinner. The mix of Irish and French cuisine was interesting and very pleasant. I found the wine selection very representative to a variety of flavors and our service was impeccable. Truly a five star experience and I will return anytime I visit Ireland.

I was recently whisked away to Waterford Castle by my family where we all enjoyed a wonderful meal for my birthday. It was a lovely sunny warm evening and it was magic going across by ferry to the castle. This was a very different way to go out to dinner. The meal was wonderful and the staff could not have...
