Very Irish fun!

While the dining room in Ashford Castle is wonderfully elegant, the restaurant at the cottage is informal fun and not to be missed.

Cullen’s at the Cottage is quaint and decorated in a nautical theme. The staff is informed, helpful and very personable. And we’re seated by the aquarium with blue lobsters. The lobsters here are incredibly blue, something we’ve never before seen. There are nothing but good things to say about our dining experience. The meal is very good. The meal begins... More

We stopped her for a drink after doing the Lough Corrib Cruise and it was a perfect way to end the day. The staff were courteous and able to accommodate a party of nearly 20 at no notice is no mean feat!! The views of the castle and lake from the terrace make this bar definitely worth a visit.

I just loved my dinner! I went with some coworkers to celebrate some birthdays, and everything went perfect. We all loved what we ordered, and we all thought the prices were very reasonable. They did forget to put a piece of broccoli on my plate. I didn't notice this, but one of the staff must have, because a few minutes... More

Members of our party had steak, fresh fish, pasta and a burger (with awesome chowder). All entries were delicious - not to mention an out of this world rice pudding! The atmosphere is cozy, the staff prompt and courteous - it was a wonderful dining experience!

We had our best meal of our four night stay here. The fish was very fresh and properly prepared. The price was good for the quality of service and food.

A definite treat! Service is impeccable, food is delicious, and presentation is outstanding. Even the sandwiches were presented well. My seafood chowder was exceptional, and the brown Irish soda bread is extra-special here. The restaurant feels elegant, even for lunch, but the prices are no higher than anywhere else. I will return!
