Fast service and good food

We had Irish stew and chicken for our lunch meal. Both were very good. Make sure you get the chocolate cake and have them warm it for you! I can taste it now!

Arrived here on a rain soaked Sunday. Was a little put off by the coaches parked outside however, once inside the personality of the owner "Big Joe" was welcome enough. We had the Shepard pie which came with salad. It was both beautiful and filling. Food was served fast and by pleasant staff. I wasn't driving so had a sneaky... More

Visited several weeks ago as part of a tour. Restaurant was clean and homey. Food was warm and comforting, just what one needed after a rainy, windy tour of the Rock monument. However, our trip to rockhouse was made a true 5 star experience thanks to the amazing service of a young waitress named Shinead . Shinead personified all that... More

I think we were probably lucky that we timed our visit after visiting the Rock of Cashel and by that time the several coaches in the car park were just leaving = The staff very quickly cleared up and found us a table - we had the place almost to ourselves and it was quiet an added bonus.

This is a great place to stop for lunch when visiting The Rock of Cashel. The Rockhouse is very popular with visiting tour groups and can get quite busy during lunch time, especially during the summer, but don`t let that put you off this place.

After a cold and blustery walk of the Rock of Cashel Church, we found this haven from the cold and an amazing lunch. The chef came and visited with us. We loved the Potato-Leek soup and their signature Sheperd's Pie. We were a large group and they fed us all in a timely manner. When I think of my visit... More

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
