“Our favorite pub in Ireland. Good food,good service, great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We went to Matt the Millers for dinner after our B&B host gave it a glowing recommendation, and we were not disappointed. The place was a revelation, and the food was probably the best meal we had in Ireland, with freshly prepared meals made with locally sourced ingredients. Would advise anyone looking for a good place to eat to consider Matt the Millers, they will not be disappointed.

“Top Irish Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

It was our first evening in Ireland and we got a good first impression of this island in this bar. The waiter was very friendly and the food was god. We had the steak chiabatta and the burger. The best thing was the live music from the two guys. We weren't able to resist to buy one of them CD's. It's an amazing memory of this evening.

“Fun Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

We went for lunch and a few pints, the owner (or manager because we found in Ireland the manager is attentive as the owner would be in the states!) was very personable and gave good recommendations. We were surprised that even our pub food was locally sourced! :) we had the cottage pie, fish and chips and Kilkenny beer. All good and it was too bad we couldn't come back at night, definitely seemed like it would be a fun place at night!

“Met with Friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Met her with friends from overseas for a meal and a catch up while they were visiting Ireland. The food is good for this type of occasion as there are some good dishes that use Irish ingredients. the place is friendly and relaxed but the music, which was excellent, was also too loud.

“Delicious food excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My only regret about our visit to Matt The Millers on Sunday 16th was that I didn't get the name of the member of staff who served us so that I could highlight his fantastic way with us and in particular with our young daughter. His easy, friendly banter was welcoming and warm and his recommendations in terms of what was on the menu was excellent. All three of us were delighted with our meal which was delicious and excellent value for money. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to locals and visitors alike. What makes a business a success is not only what it offers but how it is done and I would like to once again commend the staff and in particular the young man who served us.
