In a town with many diverse restaurants, the Hungry Monk stands out. It has a convent/monastic themed interior and simply superb food at reasonable prices. There is a value bistro downstairs with a slightly more expensive restaurant upstairs. Food is delicious throughout. They also cater for slightly older children. They have a great wine list with something for every purse... More

Couldn't fault the food at all. We sat upstairs and enjoyed a great menu with not the biggest selection but it was definitely a Quality over Quantity menu. I didn't like the 10% added service charge to all bills. There were just the 2 of us, and I am still unsure why this is? I'm a generous tipper...if I feel... More

I love the Hungry Monk, and am yet to have a bad meal here. The owner is great fun and really makes you feel welcome. As we had to go to a party early, we opted for the Early Bird for the first time, and are glad we did. We arrived at 5.30pm and were the only people upstairs, but... More

Was in the bistro part of this restaurant for nye with friends. We had a great night, food we all agreed was delicious, simple no nonsense dishes very well prepared. The place was packed and its easy to see why. Nice touch @ 12oclock with everyone getting complimentary bubbly to ring in the new year. Looking forward to our revisit... More

I am a regular at this restaurant and their effort to squeeze in more seats has had a negative impact to the atmosphere. We originally sat downstairs but had to move becuase it was far to noisy. We moved to upstairs and were disappointed at a lack of basics - under cooked chips, lack of vegetables. I hope Julian and... More

Dear Barry, It is with great sadness that I read your review of the restaurant earlier today. I do apologise for the "basics" issues you had regarding the chips and the lack of Veg which I have discussed with our restaurant head chef. Just regarding the night in question, if I recall it was a weekend night over Christmas which... More

I adore this restaurant and everything about it. I just wish I could afford to eat here more often. I prefer upstairs as its fancier 😀

Visited here recently with some collegues from work. We went to their upstairs restaurant and availed of their "Christmas Set Menu". It was high quality food and at €35 we all felt was good value. They have the place decorated nicely for Christmas which added to the evening. Service was friendly and efficient and check out the wine list!! Well... More

Was there on a family christening, our food was very bland. This is the second time I gave this place a go. If you are just visiting Ireland chances are you will not enjoy the food, if you are Irish its just grand as they say.
