Wow

What an absolutely wonderful meal my sister and I had last Saturday night, the seafood chowder and the seafood platter were to die for. Thank you to the lovely young lady that entertained us with the Harp and the Piano. We will be back for sure.

Went to Gallagher's Seafood Restaurant for Dinner on Friday night and it was just excellent from start to finish. It was the re-opening night for the restaurant which was recently refurbished and the new interior looks great and full of character. The setting is intimate and cosy and every little detail of the decor really adds to the ambience. There... More

Went here with the extended family; myself, wife, father and mother in law and the two kids. Service was great; friendly staff, attentive but not crowding. The food to a plate was so tasty and the portions were enough to sate without being bloated. To top it off, the bill was a welcome surprise. The decor is quaint but not... More

We called for a reservation and could only be taken early. We are very happy we decided to accept because the food was excellent. I choose the prix fixe meal that allows the diner to choose a starter, main, and two glasses of wine finished with coffee. A tomato and basil soup was rich and smooth served hot. The salmon... More

A couple of meals there inside four days, plus a steak in their adjacent pub. The seafood really is excellent and the wines decent at fair prices. Good, attentive service, although that can be a little slow in the pub when they are very busy (much of the time!). Not the only place to eat in Bunratty, but surely the... More
