Great restaurant

Ate here 28 June 2016. Overall - Excellent. One terribly negative aspect - men's toilets (my pet hate) - but this may be more of a reflection on men generally than on this restaurant. Floor was dirty and one of the hand dryers was out of service. Positives. Staff - there are enough staff on duty... read more

I've eaten here twice. First time I brought a group of 70 visitors here, on a recommendation. All enjoyed their food. Service prompt but not rushed. Ideal for a big group. Second time was with a couple of friends. This time service was slower (but at the right pace for us) and relaxed. Food was very nice, and certainly more... More

We ate here twice while staying in Laragh. This restaurant is very good with a friendly staff. The food was excellent! I recommend sitting outside so that you can see the amazing views of wicklow national park.

Came across this restaurant by accident {actually recommended by the lady at the shop because it was only 7.50am and she wasn't open} Glorious full Irish breakfast, pleasant staff, nothing was too much trouble for them Reasonable price and we were served quickly and with smiles. I could have drunk their coffee all day!

We stumbled on this restaurant on the way back from Glenalough one evening. We did not have a reservation and the restaurant was full but after a short wait with a drink outside we were seated. the restaurant has a cozy atmosphere but is a little on the dark side. The Irish Stew was amazing but I found the portion... More

My Husband had the Lamb Shanks and they were awesome! We shared a dessert of berry crumble. Some of the best food we've had in Ireland.

Lots of variety on the menu…from Irish to not so Irish... and the meal I had was simple but very well prepared and more than ample portions. Great service even when busy…some nice local craft beers.
