Delighted to have found this lovely restaurant. Beautiful setting. Menu was varied and different. Very reasonably priced for the high quality food. All the food was delicious with very friendly and accommodating staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back!

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

There's a reason Sha Roe is the best rated in Carlow and known outside the county, the food is excellent. Everything is prepared to a high standard using quality ingredients. Steak was Cooke to perfection and the chocolate dessert lived up to its reputation. I look forward to going back Overall; highly recommended

Had delightful Sunday Lunch at Sharoe, excellent food and service. Don't know why they don't work in conjunction with Huntington Castle as a joint marketing exercise as we had the most wonderful afternoon, fantastic lunch followed by a superb tour of Huntington Castle which is right next door to restaurant, however it was just fluke as we did not know...

Top class Food @ good value. From starters (lamb Kebab/ crab meat) to mains (pork/lamb) the food had real taste & was delicious. Would have no hesitation recommending this restaurant to anyone. Staff were really friendly & attentive. The chef would have to get the majority of praise as there was nothing left on our plates!.
