i went here yesterday on a family day out. When we arrived i really admired the building and once we walked inside i really thought it looked fantastic! Once we went into the dining room for lunch, we were greeted by a not so friendly waitress. The tables and chairs weren't the most comfortable and seemed a bit dirty. I... More

Travelled to the Caslte with family for Sunday Lunch. Amazing back drop. Had to wait for a table but that gave us the chance to explore the wonderful setting. Really good value for money considering the surroundings. Would highly recommend

Despite glowing menu descriptions and astronomical prices that should indicate gourmet quality, the food was just average. Everything was cooked to order, but the aged steak was much tougher than prime beef should be. My wife's filet was tender but nothing special. Service was good.

Dressy casual made us feel very relaxed. Service and food was fabulous. We got a great laugh when our waiter,(Laurence), took our dessert order with Irish coffee. One of our party asked for Irish Whiskey on the side and our waiter immediately asked "Over and above....". We are still laughing over that!!!

The menu reads like a Michelin restaurant but the experience was most definitely not. The food was edible but that's where it ends. It's hard to say exactly what is wrong (the chef for starters), it just was very very ordinary despite the very appetising description on the menu. In fact, I could have cooked better and I'm no real... More

The 6 course menu at the Douglas Hyde Restaurant was beautifully presented and tasted as good as it looked. The food was delicious and the staff were attentive and professional.

Beautifully and lovingly crafted top-notch faire washed down with excellent wines. A marvelous five star dining experience. Not only did the chef serve wonderful food, but he also sent a couple of treats along for our tasting pleasure. Great evening!

Yesterday evening I met my girlfriend and some of her family for a meal in Douglas and Hyde restaurant as they had an all inclusive package. Myself and my girlfriend hadn't but decided to get the 3 course for €45. From reading the previous reviews I was expecting good think but was very let down altogether. Where do I start..........
