“Great hotel bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

Wonderful staff, great variety of drinks and a couple of good dishes to try. The Stirfry was well liked as was the toasted sandwiches. The Lamb Shank was under-seasoned and Hamburgers were not good at all.
Best part of the place is the staff. The bartenders (especially Cillian) are fantastic.

“Very nice food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We ate in the bar on Sunday evening and it was very good. I had the wings which where really hot, what you want when you order hot wings! For main I had the beef burger which was burnt when I got it but the waiter was more than happy to replace and was very sorry. Over all the food was great, if you forgive the first burger.

“Good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

We didn't have the energy after a long day of travel to go find something to eat when we got in at 9:00, so we decided to eat at the hotel restaurant. We figured out after we had sat down that we went to the bar instead, but it was pleasant, so we stayed. It was packed with people (but not too much). Our food was pretty good, and we had no complaints. It wasn't exactly cheap, but it wasn't completely unreasonable either. A good choice if you don't want to leave the hotel.

“Service/food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Today I ate with my partner in the bar restaurnt of the connacht hotel.We had a voucher that we claimed on the living social website..My partner and I both had two steak sandwiches..The service took 25 minutes and the waitress was very unfriendly.The presentation of the food was shocking just a bowl of chips and a sloppy greasey steak sandwich..It was so tough that we were going to get a chainsaw out of my partners boot.it was tasteless and rather abysmal..we wont be goin back
