Great lunch, unfortunately two of the dishes on the menu was sold out by the time we arrived. But there was still a good selection of food on the menu to choose from. You will definitely enjoy your meal. Well worth a visit.

I love Cistin Eile. I love the understated but comfortable decor, the unpretentious, friendly staff and of course the food. For me, Cistín Eile is a brilliant representation of what Irish food should be all about. I've eaten in all kinds of restaurants all over the country, Michelin stars, three rosettes, etc but Cistín Eile is still my favourite.

I had the fried goats cheese and my wife had a cornedbeef sandwich with beetroot salad. They were both simply delicious!

Had pleasure of enjoying another great meal here earlier this evening. Early bird menu was more then great value. Freshly cooked food which means a little longer want then we may be used to in some restaurant but so worth the extra few minutes. The service as always excellent. Will return for sure.

I have been to this restaurant a number of times, and it never disappoints. The food is simply stunning. It is fresh, seasonal, mainly locally sourced perfection. Wine list is perfect with something for every palate. Lunch menu's really cover all preferences too, but I would have to recommend any of the fish dishes.It is really well run and the... More
