We were so hungry and glad to find that Rockhouse was open for lunch. We found it only because we were parked in the lot for the Rock of Cashel and there was a small path from the parking lot to the restaurant. We followed the signs upstairs and found the wonderful smells of a buffet. You can eat the... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. The buffet food was very good considering how empty the restaurant was. Irish stew, fried chicken and Shepard pie very good. Mashed and vegetables a little stale. Happy we pulled off the motorway to rest and found both the castle and rock house.

I've been to the rockhouse a good few times and I've always found it a simple, nice and friendly place to eat. It's very homely and the food is really nice!!! But the best part of it is the staff, alway nice, friendly, available and chatty!

I visited the restaurant just a few days ago. The cutlery was so dirty, the glass as well and the tables as well as the chairs were full of crumbles from the previous guests. Proud of seating as many as possible in the shortest time but forgetting that the customers are actually paying for a good meal at a nice... More

I visited this restaurant yesterday with the other members of our tour bus and although most of us were there for a tea or coffee break we also sampled some excellent scones with cream and jam. This is an extremely busy restaurant and was filled with other tour bus members from Germany as well, and the staff coped brilliantly with... More

Had lunch here today. Service was quick but without much interaction. Pizza is good, really tasty and excellent value. Plain old ham sambo pretty good too, met with great satisfaction by a fussy nine year old. Now the soup, for such a limited menu, the soup was awful. Lacked taste completely. Would definitely recommend a visit for the pepperoni and... More
