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

Hardly need to submit a review in view of the excellent feedback already on the site, but credit where credit is due. Have been meaning to go to Sha-roe for years, due to its reputation, but never managed it until last week. This is a classy operation, without doubt, and especially impressive given the reasonable prices. Starter was crab risotto,... More

I first heard of Sha Roe while on a walking weekend in the vicinity a month ago - it's beside the entrance to Huntington Castle - another visitor attraction in Clonegal. We were a party of five and we arrived a little early, but that was no bother for Stephanie. The restaurant is small and intimate, but there is ample... More
