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

We paid the entrance fee to see the grounds of Ashford Castle and have lunch at the Cottage. Cullen's At The Cottage opens at lunch time, so we decided to walk the grounds first. It was a real treat despite the overcast weather. The service at Cullen's At The Cottage was excellent. We had our choice of a booth right... More

Cullen's is in a lovely location and has a true "olde worlde" atmosphere. There is plenty of parking and the entrance is level. The washrooms (clean and attractive) are on the ground floor. We went for an afternoon snack. Beautifully dressed waitresses served us two absoluely huge, homemade scones each with a large dish of cream and strawberry jam. There... More

Thank you Emer for spoling us. We had a wonderful, relaxing dinner following our afternoon of Falcony School. The mussels tasted like they just jumped out of the water and onto our plates. My husband totally savored his oysters. It you want it fresh and delicious, make your reservation now. This was one of our favorite nights. Paula & Mur... More

We , enjoyed the starters and dessert as well, but that fish...yum... Ivan had a great smile each time I looked, other staff acted very professional but without... More
