This is a deceptively large building, with various eating areas. The portions are very good, and the food is lovely, as are the staff who are very helpful. Give the Thatched Cottage a try, you won't regret it.

We recently had a family meal here and the food did not disappoint. Delicious. And we left totally stuffed. Would definitely eat here again.

We visited here with a recommendation from the B&B we stayed in Nenagh. I know there isn't much to choose from in Nenagh, but this restaurant was definitely worth a stop. It's filled with local friends and families who probably come here on a weekly basis, so there is this warm atmosphere of a neighborhood restaurant. I guess it's a... More

A small restaurant and very intimate. Very good ambiance. Food was too spicy for my liking and the menu choice was limited. The price was costly .

I have been here many times for lunch with my friends and every time it has been really nice. The staff are lovely, and very helpful and the choice of food, buffet style is vast. It always leaves me wondering what will I have as the whole lot appeals greatly! Extra roasties or stuffing or gravy is never a problem.

Each time we stay in Ballycommon, we stay at Maryville B&B and walk to The Thatched Cottage for dinner. We are usually the only non-locals there and it's typically where we have our first Guinness on our trips to Ireland--my nana was born about a kilometer away, so I'm very fond of both Ballycommon and Ballartella.

Nice pub run by nice people. Food is good too. Good location if you're heading towards Lough Derg or Dromineer.
