Highly recommend a bisit

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

Out to dinner with friends. Recommend that you book early and then arrive early. There is an old pub just next door that captures the 'essence' of the Irish pub. You are allowed to order your drinks and then take them to the park across the street to enjoy the river and the stunning views. Dinner was fabulous with perfect... More

We booked Sha Roe some time ago as friends advised us to eat there. It is situated in the small village of Clonegal which also happens to be the finish of the 130k Wicklow Way walk ! We were not to be disappointed - it was the treat that we needed after finishing the walk ! Food was amazing and... More

Visited sha-roe last Friday and was blown away. Amazing food which is clearly prepared fresh everyday. I found it hard to choose from the menu because everything sounded so good. I went with the confit duck leg starter, seafood bouillabaisse for mains and the fig tart for dessert. Couldn't fault a single element on any dish. Simple food, yet simply... More

We went to Sha-Roe for lunch last Sunday, and what an amazing experience! The food is sublime, and just so fresh. Though the choice is 'limited' it is varied and just so tasty. Firstly we were served fresh baked rolls with creamy butter. I started with a 'prawn infused' risotto with tomato and the freshest crab on top followed by... More
