You may chose a 2 or 3 course dinner and an appetizer/sorbet is served with both. Fantastic food and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. After dinner, we walked the grounds. Beautiful and serene. Since we stayed the night, we also had breakfast the next morning. The food was fresh and very tasteful.

Obviously I can't fault the surroundings. They are truly stunning. Also the service was very good. For lunch I had soup for starter which was ok and creme brulee for desert which was very nice. But the main course of hake sitting on this awful splodge of pureed sweetcorn and peas was possibly the worst meal I have had. The... More

What a nice treat to dine in The Munster Room at Waterford Castle. It's a fine dining experience in a lovely wood panelled room, creating a really nice atmosphere. Staff are friendly and provide guidance with menu selections if asked. It's an interesting menu using local produce. An experience to repeat!

I dined in The Castle the week it first opened, some 25 or so years ago. Years later I had my 40th birthday party there. Yesterday we had a family gathering there for Mother's day. In short, it's been the place for my family and I to come for every special occasion and any excuse in between. Chef Michael Quinn... More

This has to be one of the most ionic spots in Waterford. The castle is reached by a small ferry. The main restaurant is housed in the munster room.Old world paneling and opulence. The service is friendly, professional with just the right amount of formality. Sensible wine list and separate children's menu ( freshly cooked, good variation). Main menu had... More

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.
