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!.

It is a couple of years since we have eaten here and now I wonder why? We are already anticipating our next visit! Situated in one of the more attractive villages in Ireland and although it is off the general thoroughfare, Sha-roe is consistently wonderful for an evening out. Is it expensive? I don't think so...travelling regularly for business and... More

A very memorable meal in a great restaurant with friendly efficient staff. The food was the star as it should be. Really enjoyed the atmosphere. My wife and I both enjoyed the food and the wine and were made to feel welcome and relaxed.

Sha-Roe restaurant is in the picturesque village of Clonegal at the end of the Wicklow Way, The restaurant staff were attentive upon our arrival, however there did not seem to be a designated front of house person. Tables do not have tablecloths and there were paper napkins. Starters are prices between €8 and €11, Out main courses were €23 for... More

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
