Apart from the fact that this little bistro is located where people who live in the middle of nowhere think the middle of nowhere is, it is a must for anyone staying even remotely close by. We were welcomed and made to feel at home immediately by our host. Our food was outstanding. The simple yet powerful flavours that the... More

This was a real find. Small unassuming restaurant with chef of the year 2013! Cannot fault food nor service and even requested a chat with the chef who obliged in the kitchen itself. His philosophy is good food, good service, good prices. He is successful in all three. Food prices for the quality is hard to find. Locally sourced food... More

My partner and I decided to get a full three courses... Sha-roe have a lovely selection of fine wines. The starters are lovely, just enough to literally get you started, however, I... More

Have dined here before but first time for Sunday lunch, brought our 4 year old son. The food was amazing from starter to desert. They made our son so welcome among all the adults and really accommodated him food wise but not with the usual kids menu ( nuggets, sausages) but real quality food, hake mashed potatoes and carrots and...

This was my 3rd visit to Sha-roe and it consistently remains one of the best restaurants to visit in Carlow. Clonegal is a small village, which I never get to explore because it seems to be raining every time I get there! However, whatever the weather, there is nothing to fault in the restaurant. Every course is perfect. Prices are... More

Had Sunday lunch here for my husband's 40th (he's still in denial!) and it was every bit as amazing as I hoped it would be! Service was impeccable and the food was amazing. First heard about the restaurant from a friend in college many years ago (thanks Avril!) and she was singing it's praises. Only regret I have is that... More

He said that his veggie meal was one of the best he has had in any restaurant .. Coming from him that speaks volumes. I would have no... More
