A Charming Dinner Spot!

We had the most wonderful meal at the cottage. The service was excellent. Great South African wine selection and the monkish augratin is delicious!

Had a lovely meal here recently and would not hesitate to recommend it. Staff were attentive and polite. Menu was varied and offered excellent value. I enjoyed a delicious chicken schnitzel. My only quibble was the high price being charged for the wine...it was disproportionate to the cost of the food.

The thatched roof caught our eye but the beautiful copper bar and superb service captured our hearts (and stomachs). A quaint cottage on the grounds of Ashford Castle adjacent to the gift shop. Worth a stop for a drink.

What a wonderful place to dine for a casual meal. Located on the grounds of Ashford Castle, this restaurant serves a modern continental cuisine sourced locally. The service was so attentive and friendly that we had a great time no matter the food. Ah, but the food! Excellent by any measure. Their ceviche appetizer was a unique preparation for ceviche...

Friendly staff, Amazing food, quite relaxing atmosphere. Dress can be dressy or casual. Can pick it your own lobster :-) Wine selection was grand. We enjoyed out dinner and most of all the friendliness from start to finish!

We had a lovely stay at Ashford Castle, and our visit to this restaurant was a highlight. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. We opted for the more upscale, George V restaurant in the Castle the next night, and wished we had just gone back to the Cottage, which is a far superior restaurant. If you... More

We dropped in for a bowl of soup at lunchtime and were so impressed we booked for dinner that evening and we weren't disappointed. We had the fish curry and the chicken curry, both of which were delicious. My companion pronounced the fish curry to be the best she had ever eaten. Presentation of the chicken curry is worth a...
