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

"ill have to roll home I'm so full !!" so unfortunately I find your comment very hard to believe !! As myself & Pauric... 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

Love The Forge. I had the Pigeon starter which was cooked well, I.e. pink though I think the pigeon itself was a little tough. The fillet steak was beautiful. The tiniest bit over medium rare but the cut of meat was phenomenal. Dessert was great, the brownie was delicious. I managed to also taste the cheese plate supplied by Sheridans.... More
