Elegant but casual country setting. Great service and very good food. Seafood dish of day was superb. Cooked right and well presented. It is not cheap but a good alternative to the town pubs when you want a nice night out.

The scones were a bit expensive (around €7.50, but I could be wrong), but were yum yum for a special treat or if you have loads of money and like spending it. I rarely give any place I visit 5 stars, because I am hard to please. However, I will give this place 5 stars. I like to put a... More

Lunchtime staff appeared to be part-time and lacked proper training - and not too bright - However food was good on both our visits and reasonable value for Lunch. We called from the car to make a lunch time appointment for 4.30 and were told that lunch finishes at 4.30 - so after some hairy driving landed at 4.30 to... More

My sister and I had dinner here during our stay at ashford castle. We were both impressed with the comfortable atmosphere, friendly waiters and amazing food. If I ever have the opportunity to stay here again (or nearby), I will definitely be back. :0)

We made a "return" visit to Cullen's this August and were very pleasantly surprised but the new menu. The service & quality were as always "Top's" but the new menu + the new décor all added to a great evening. Ivan is as always so professional making sure everything is just perfect but always with such a friendly disposition. Well... More

We had spent the afternoon at the falconry school which was excellent and I would highly recommend this. Afterwards five of us went to Cullen's. We all had starters, main course and dessert. The service was poor and at one point we had no cutlery and had to go looking for this while our food went cold. We had to... More

Excellent restaurant. Food great, service fantastic and surroundings amazing. Would recommend you book a table when you arrive and keep an empty stomach. Great range to choose from.

My family and I had wonderful tea and scones here. They were very nicely presented with butter and a jar of jam on each plate with 2 scones. A wonderful afternoon snack.

On our visit to Ashford Castle, we stopped off at Cullen's to get some lunch. We decided to sit outside and after being ignored for 15 minutes decided to venture inside to get some menus. The place was around one third full inside. Another wait of 15mins before I went inside to ask if they could possibly come outside to... More
