The food is excellent here and is consistently excellent. Given that it is the only option in Tara you could be tempted to eat before going in case it was not good and that'd be a pity. Service is excellent, the coffee is great, the prices are reasonable and there is the option of outdoor dining, not to mention the... More

Delicious! Very popular place, even for a late lunch we had to wait 15 minutes but those minutes were worth it!

This place is just famtastic😀😀. The food is home made and a fantastic place for cold days. I have spent many days here having some of the most beautiful food. Always very busy.

OK so I thought I would take a friend to the Hill of Tara for lunch today. Maguires is a nice place with a good reputation for food. We arrived just before one o'clock and as I had not made a reservation we added our name to the list. The hostess told us we could expect to wait about 15... More

Fabulous coffee shop in a wonderful location. I regularly meet friends here for a coffee and a catch up. I love the ceramic pottery plates, cups, etc. that they serve their culinary delights in. The Tara Special is particularly nice and good value too - two homemade scones with cream/jam and tea or coffee.

We had spent the day in County Meath being overwhelmed by the number of historic sites beaconing us to visit. Our final stop was the Hill of Tara--so powerful! That did build an appetite so we decided to see what was offered at Maguires Cafe. At first, we weren't going to even walk through the door as all the outside... More

We stopped in when visiting the Hill of Tara to get a coffee, tea and a muffin to share. Hands down the best muffin I have ever tasted. Tea and coffee were good too....but WOW! That muffin was a delightful treat!!

Lunchtime in Navan can be a difficult time to get a good lunch. We decided to go outside Navan a bit for fresh air and what was touted as excellent food in Maguires. The restaurant looks lovely, but the seats are fairly packed in together. We weer practicum aryl sitting with our closest neighbours! I had a panini with soup... More
