This is a beautiful gem of a place right in the middle of Bunratty. How it keeps its sense of place so close to all the paddy-whackey is a mystery but it really is worth a visit. The food, drink and service is very good and the hospitality is warm andf riendly.

A wonderful dining experience. We decided to splurge on this last meal in Ireland by ordering lobster. It was delicious and came from the northwestern (I think) coast of Ireland. Reminded me of the tasty lobsters from Maine this time of year.

My very favorite of anywhere. Food was fantastic and the staff was exceptional. We tried to make a 7pm reservation but they were only accepted at 8 pm or later. It was a very long evening but the Irish typically eat later than Americans. Great atmosphere.

I rarely post a bad review, but I wanted to warn you. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. The man that greeted us at the door was very nice. The server was rude, rude, rude. We sat at the table for 25 minutes before the server would acknowledge our existence. We had to beg for every glass of water. We were definitely an... More

We arrived early, but as the evening progressed and the restaurant filled up, there were only the same two waitstaff working. It took 20 minutes and three arms high waves to get the check.

Yes, the food here is rather good, as it should be for the price. The serve four different fish dishes all cooked to perfection, shows a kitchen brigade with a deft touch.
