Amazing food with great service

Visited this restaurant with my partner and I have to say it's amazing. The service is top class, the restaurant itself is very comfortable. The food is cooked perfectly and is bursting with taste. I will definitely be back.

Visited here with family as a group of 8 and it was a real treat! We received a gracious welcome when we stepped inside and were seated within 5 minutes - a pleasant surprise given that it was a Saturday night. The menu is comparatively short but this isn't a problem when everything looks good! I opted for the pate... More

Clonegal its self is a beautiful village, a real contender for a tidy towns award which it has if I'm not mistaken already achieved, with nice walks, Huntington Castle a must see all in close proximity if that is what you like to do. Sha Roe is set... More

This is a hidden gem in the village of Clonegal, near Bunclody Wexford. Great service and food. Expensive meals but well worth it.

Wow - where to start. This is one of the best food experiences I have had. The service is also top notch. The food is just sublime - amazing ingredients, creative processes and magnificent flavours. It is a little bit more expensive than your average meal out, but my is it worth it. You are getting an A grade food... More

Sha-Roe deserves to be praised for its excellent local, well-prepared food, for its well deigned reception and dining room, for its eye for detail, for its warm welcome and the care and attention you are given to make your visit memorable. We had dinner there twice during our recent visit to Shillelagh and both times we were more than impressed... More

Each time I've visited Sha-Roe I've left feeling absolutely wonderful. Stephanie and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The food is exceptional, from the delicate home made mini loaves to the melt in the mouth mains and delicately prepared desserts, each detail is executed to the highest standards. The cosy atmosphere makes it a welcome retreat in the wintery... More

Intimate restaurant with excellent food & service tucked away in a quaint little village.A pre dinner drink in Osbournes pub next door is recommended. It's like stepping back in time!

The sun was shining, the old bridge was beautiful and there were white flowers growing in the river. Osborne's pub is next door. It is a great example of the Irish Pub. Staff really friendly, lots of atmosphere and the pub is packed with nostalgic old items. We were already off to a good start, but Sha Roe was fabulous.... More
