Had dinner in Teach Dolmáin in Carlow last night, and it was quite nice. We had the Value Menu, which was €18.50 for two courses. Great value and the food was nice. I had chicken strips which were doused in sweet chilli sauce and served in a poppadum basket, which was a bit weird, and not needed, to be honest.... More

if you want good food at a great price this is the place to go. Teach has a more relaxed atmosphere than your conventional restaurant. Huge choice on the menu, fast service, wine and beer available.

I was in Teach Dolmen last night with a girl friend. Its a place I haven't visited in a number of years. It has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and the food was top class.

We ate here on a very wet and windy day in Ireland and it was a warm welcome inside. The restaurant was very busy and we felt the staff were stretched to their limit but overall the food was very good. The quantities, as in most Irish pubs are large so be sure and have an empty stomach before eating.
