We had a wonderful afternoon tea here. Very atmospheric and the food was incredible. Delicious sandwiches, pastries and perfectly baked scones. Lovely!

There are two places to eat: the restaurant, and Shannigan's Gastro Pub. Staff were friendly, but I had to move tables due to the smell of cigarette smoke drifting in from the open door across the room. The staff member I mentioned it to didn't close the door. I had the seafood chowder, which was tasty - and very, very... More

We loved everything. The Hawk Walk was really unusual and interesting. Food was delicious and the gardens were beautiful. We attended a wedding when we were there and it was out of this world. The walled rose garden was a private setting for the ceremony, the cocktail hour on the terrace was lovely and the dinner was delicious. We will... More

Looking for a more casual venue for lunch, we chose the Fig Tree rather than the more formal dining area in the castle. The Fig Tree in the club was very elegant, good menu choices. You may pay a little more here than an average restaurant but it is worth it and the portions are generous. Service was very good.... More

A real treat. We started with a cheese tray and tea service. The butler was dressed in full tux with white gloves that he kept spotless while straining the tea. Dinner was great and we followed it up with an evening cocktail in the bar.

We dined in the Gallery Restaurant inside the castle because we wanted a laid back cozy dinner. The atmosphere was warm and inviting with different combinations of tables and chairs set around the room. We ordered a cheeseburger which was big and juicy with just the right extras. The bun was toasty yet soft to the bite. It was served... More

We had dinner at the Earl of Thomond restaurant on our last night in Ireland. It was a very classy experience. There was a harpist that played through most of the evening. The service was exceptional and very classy. Just the way they arrange the dishes and serve is just very elegant. The meal itself was delicious, but we expected... More

Went for Sunday lunch with my sisters family and my own (4 kids, 4 adults). The service was very poor - took them ages to take our order, even longer to serve, and we were going to have dessert, but no-one arrived to take our order. The food itself was fine, distinctly average is the best I could give it.... More
