Myself and three friends stopped here for a meal on a rainy bank holiday, August 2014. We thought the decor was beautiful and quirky and the atmosphere relaxed and friendly. All the food was delicious and I think the early bird 3-course menu for 20 euro is very reasonable. I had a warm bean salad to start, the Phoenix bake... More

I would definitely not recommend this bed and breakfast because firstly on arrival we received a very poor welcome. We were shown to our room and we all noticed a musty smell of damp on the way up to the room. The family room itself was bright and airy but lacked some basic essentials such as as glass in the...

My mom & I visited last weekend & we will be returning for sure! Restaurant itself is quirky & the waiting staff are most pleasant! We started with stuffed vine leaves & artichokes (we shared both plates), which were both so fresh & wow the accompanying salads were delicious. I had the curry for main & mom had the vegetable...

The atmosphere and menu were just not my style. The waiter asked us to confirm that we were not vegan, so he knew whether to bring butter with the bread. I'm a meat & potatoes kind of girl, so this was not a comforting start to the meal. However, I suspect that anyone who is vegan or who makes or... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stop here. Not only was the food very flavorful, satisfying, and creative, but we enjoyed our visit with our server and the chef. We walked around the garden and wagons to take photos, and I even bought a cookbook. Very relaxing and charming place!

Myself partner and 14 year old daughter dropped in for dinner but there was no one at the till so we took a seat. Menu seemed nice and we eventually placed an order for pasta having initially been given someone else's bread. 40 mins later my daughters pasta came out and as she was hungry and we expected ours to...

I visited with a group of family and friends. The room was quite nice and bright. As soon as we sat down, things went downhill. Our server seemed either inexperienced or did not care about service. We asked her what was the fish special, as it was not specified on the menu. She replied that the special was the hake.... More

I am extremely sorry the group were unhappy with the service, food, price and of course Hygiene. Although I was not working that night i believe the first problem arouse when the group wished to open their own wine. In most countries in a licensed restaurant this is unacceptable unless previously agreed upon with MANAGEMENT and not floor staff. We... More

I have visited the Phoenix a few times for lunch and dinner and have enjoyed the food and hospitality equally every time. It is a bit out of the way so you may have to make a special effort to go there but worth it for good food and ambience. It is a situated a few miles between Inch Strand... More
