Had a lovely meal here. Great service. Tasty bread before beautiful meal. Food cooked with great care and passion. You can enjoy food that has taken time to be prepared. Slow cooked beef a must. Will be back soon

We were so lucky to get a last minute cancellation on Sat 9th August 2014. You do not come here for the surroundings or decor or if you are expecting Newbridge Silverware, but hand on heart, the food here is definitely the best I have ever eaten. It was just amazing, every single morsel was eaten and I was at... More

Whether it's for lunch or dinner, the food in Cistin Eile is always great. Really good value too. Have always found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. Definitely worth making a reservation as it's always busy.

Had a fantastic dining experience. Don't let the table clothes or decor put you off! The food is fit for a very fancy restaurant. My friend has a nut allergy and the waiter and chef were very accommodating, giving her extra options. Make sure you call and reserve a table as it's very busy!

Really good choice. Meal was delicious, portion sizes were very decent. Lovely bread at start straight away and replaced with more without asking. Would definitely... More

What a hidden gem! Super restaurant.in my favorite Irish town. On this visit we decided to have lunch here having had a really first class dinner on a previous visit.I opted for the black and white pudding salad. Super flavors. My American partner wanted to try Cistin Eile's interpretation of Irish bacon and cabbage. She thought it outstanding. Three weeks... More
