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.

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.
