We have been going to the Forge for several years. It is true to say that we have always had a great meal there. Pauric the co-owner and chef offers imaginative menus, at great value for money. Irene, his wife and co-owner always makes you very welcome. The short but adequate wine list is well priced. The Forge is really... More

had read a few reviews about this place before we ventured out there for dinner one Saturday night. didn't have a booking on the Friday and even though initially they said they were booked out (which seems to be a common thing having talked to a few of the locals) they rang back within 5 minutes saying that they could...

We all had the early bird menu for €30 that included three courses. I had the baked Brie followed by the cod with wilted spinach and... More

My family and I had a fabulous meal from start to finish for mothers day in the forge. We were greeted warmly by the owner of the restaurant and she showed us to where we would be eating. We got to eat in a really cool part of the restaurant a little area all on its own with lovely candles... More

This evening myself and my husband had a delightful meal in the beautiful Forge restaurant. The setting is relaxing and tranquil & staff are pleasant. We were greeted warmly by the owner of the establishment and she showed us around (there's a new part and original part of restored old forge), before showing us to our seats. There is plenty...

This was my first night dining out at the Forge and it was such a fantastic evening. Such a beautiful setting, where they have married the old building with their new renovations perfectly. The old stone wall on the inside, hung with a myriad of interesting artifacts (all spotlessly clean and dust free), with candles lit everywhere, added such a... More

The Forge Restaurant has to be one of the best dining experiences in the republic. You can expect an experience, that will leave you extremely well fed (no small decorative portions here) the food presentation is very good with plenty of it, it is well cooked and fresh produce locally sourced is used. A good wine list accompanies the food... More
