One of the best meals we had in Ireland

We stopped in after a trip on the boat out on Lough Corrib to make our reservation for that evening. Sinead was there to assist us and showed us around the cottage. I hope that they realize what a treasure they have in that young lady. When we arrived later that evening she recommended a fish for... read more

I'm sure this seems confusing, but there is no separate page for reviews of Cullen's in the Dungeon. Let's start out with the better experience... Cullen's at the Lodge - FOUR stars. The food was good, not memorable but good. The service was attentive. Unfortunately, they didn't have my first choice of entree, but that's okay. The highlight was the... More

We had Dinner before at the Cottage but were extremely excited for the visit at the Dungeon. The menu includes some of the Cottages former highlights. The atmosphere is incomparable down there between all the accouterments of knighthood! On our table we've had: Warm crumbled goat's cheese salad (including some really juicy roasted tomatoes) and scallops with a cheddar &... More

We've been here for lunch and we were welcomed by the friendly staff as well as he cozy atmosphere. The cottage is located just 100 mt. from Ashford Castle to which the facility belongs. The food is great and well done, spaghetti are just like the Italian quality, the chowder is delicious as well as the fish and chips. Prices... More

Had a lovely meal here with my friends from around the area. Food was delicious and staff were very helpful. The Cottage was warm, clean and well kept. Steak was cooked perfectly, and the Rice Pudding was insanely good.

Cullen's is a smaller charming restaurant at Ashford Castle a short walk from the Castle, providing casual and intimate dining in the evening for two or twelve offering excellent Irish cuisine and seafood. Our family group consisted of 11 members who consistently favored Guinness, and the Irish Lamb. The wine selection was excellent as well. The Irish servers with their... More

Cullen's sells the same food as the Lodge at Ashford Castle, just a few euro more expensive. If you go to the Castle's bar, you get the same menu again but pay even more! Seems a bit daft to me. You would expect to get better more expensive food at the Castle surely, not just the same thing but more... More
