I did not think the service was great, was left sitting for quite some time before our order was taken. After we finished each course our plates were left in front of us for quite some time. Wrong starter was given to me. Scampi and caesar salad starter is a complete let down - no taste from caesar salad and... More

Another decent restaurant and bar in Bunratty, you'll need a reservation for Gallagher's but not for JP Clarkes, sister restaurant attached/ next door. Gallaghers is fine dining with very good food, atmosphere, its small and quaint with very friendly staff, I've been going here for the last few years when I can and the staff always remember me, really cool....

My wife and I had a really nice Meal in Gallaghers, excellent seafood menu with plenty of options. Prices are a little much but good quality food. The service however was very poor, there seems to be 1 person to take orders and doing bills with all Other waiters & waitresses just dropping food, Hence no one seemed to be... More

We were staying in Bunratty at Easter and having read the reviews, decided that we would have dinner at Gallaghers. They do a two and a three course menu, which is excellent and they do seem to mix and match the menu with the a la carte. The emphasis is on fish and we thoroughly enjoyed our two courses and...

Came across this and then JP Clarkes by chance, visited this place first. Was quite empty when we came about 7pm, seemed to fill up quite quickly. Would recommend booking in advance. The 2 courses for €25 is exceptional value. I didn't go for this but had the pan seared fish platter, 3 daily fish with dauphine potatoes, roast heirloom... More

Visited the "new" Gallagher's this evening, might take a bit if getting used to. The new menu is short on specials but exactly what you would expect for a seafood restaurant. Good starter (prawns) and great main course (trio). But the vegetarian options were very poor (came from the bar). Will be back but please .... get a proper vegetarian... More
