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.
