Clonegal is a charming, picturesque village that's well worth a visit. (Nearby Huntington Castle and grounds is lovely to explore.) The cherry on top is a meal at Sha-Roe. Top quality food, reasonably priced in a lovely, cosy atmosphere.

I recently visited Sha-Roe Bistro in Clonegal, in Carlow and I must say it was one of the best experiences I have had for food and atmosphere in a restaurant this year. We had children with us as well (from 1 year to 7 years) and they could not have been better looked after. The food was exceptional, the place... More

Based on its tripadvisor rating we decided to try this restaurant last month. Wee had a very warm welcome and were shown to our reserved table (reservation is needed as this place is so busy). The staff were really polite and helpful and definitely helped with the overall experience. The food also lived up to the ratings and we were... More

Few folks we encountered during our weekend in Carlow were surprised when we said we were going to eat in Sha-Roe bistro, such is the popularity of this little restaurant tucked away in the pretty town of Clonegal. (The town recently won the 2014 award of tidiest village in Ireland!) In any case, after a pre-dinner pint in Osborne's Bar,... More
