We had eaten here a few years ago, because a friend had recommended it, and we loved it. During the Christmas holidays we decided to go back to this area and obviously we booked a table at Casa Irene.

Our friends insisted on us going to Casa Irene and they were right. A nice cozy ambiance with a selection of local dishes typical from the Aran Valley. My favourite was the Foie. Reservations in advance are needed. The crowd was more in the late 50's, suppose it's expected as it is not inexpensive,but worth your while definitely!

Casa Irene has a great reputation, and I have to say that it lived and surpassed all expectations. The restaurant offers some amazing service, top notch in every way, only surpassed by the quality of the food that is served. Anything that we tried, from traditional dished to more refined international cuisine, was utterly delicious. In a valley that is... More

We came across this restaurant during a recent back packing trip. It's only a small Spanish village but the quality of the food is excellent. If we ever return to this area we will definitely seek out this restaurant . A very enjoyable evening.
