Beautiful experience

Went with 2 friends for a girly catch up. Fab service from start to finish. Wonderful food in lovely surroundings. Brought our drinks in by the fireplace to enjoy once our meal was over. I can't wait for my next visit.

We recently visited Sha-Roe Bistro, we had table booked for half 9 but weren't seated till 10past 10pm. We didn't mind that as we were looking forward to our meal as it was first time going there. The menu was very poor in my opinion no chicken option at all, choice very limited. The Staff were lovely. The noise in... More

Dear Monika, Thank you very much for your review. I am very happy to take on board your comments, but I wish that you had been a bit more detailed in your review as you conveniently forgot to mention some important facts. First of all, at 9:30pm, when I realised that I would be delayed in bringing your group to... More

I went to Sha-Roe for our Christmas night out with work and I have to say it was a fantastic night. On arrival we were brought into a room where we were warmly welcomed and our coats were taken. We were led into a beautiful room with a fire lighting that added physical warmth to the already experiential warmth that... More

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
