We went here celebrate our daughters 21st. The staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The place was full but they attended to everyone without any pressure. We all got steaks and they were fab. It was a little empty when we got there, but soon filled up and the ambiance was lovely. It is very comfortable. No hard wooden seats... More

We ate as a family at the Grain Store during a recent trip to Ireland. Set in the backdrop of the fabulous Darver Castle we were very impressed with our surroundings. Food was of excellent quality, staff were extremley attentive and could not have served us better. We thoroughly enjoyed our expercience and will definitley be returning.

Nothing was too much trouble, and they went above and beyond at every turn. Mary is incredible. She is everywhere, doing everything all at once. Trevor is so good at... More

Been here many times for special occasions.No doubt the castle itself is stunning,but on all occasions the food has been very average.Staff were always pleasant,but there's definitely about 8 or ten better restaurants in Dundalk.

Attended my niece's wedding in Dec 12. Room beautifully presented, food tastiest I've had at wedding reception, service excellent. Seriously, unbeatable. However, management's treatment of staff was not good and really led one go believe management had either not trained staff, or had no faith in them!
