My wife & I had a light lunch at this lovely setting - the staff were outstanding - totally friendly and efficient. I had the mushroom soup which was flavoursome. My wife had the seafood chowder which was disappointing - it was more of a vegetable broth with one small piece of salmon,three miniature shrimps and about 10 mussels -... More

The food at wine port is modern European with many nice touches in preparation and presentation. The service is excellent, attentive but never fussy. The situation is excellent on the lake, has...

The Wineport Restaurant is already so well known that is hardly needs a review from me. It is the location for the RTE TV series 'The Restaurant', where celebrities display their culinary skills. However, on this occasion the regular chef was doing the cooking. My husband brought me there for a meal to celebrate my birthday and it was lovely.... More

I booked this venue and restaurant for my wife's 50th birthday in September 2013. The staff were brilliant and could not have been more helpful. The location is exquisite sitting right on the edge of the Shannon facing the western sunset. We booked a boat trip for the 26 of us and with a combination of excellent weather and lovely... More

My partner and I stopped in for lunch, was one of the worst meals I have had in a long time. Both the brown and white bread which was given were stale. The chowder was watery with little seafood. The salad had peppers so stale they had gone soggy. Very very overpriced for the extremely poor quality of food presented.... More
