Booked at very late notice, which was no problem for them whatsoever. The food was great and we had a lovely time. Would definitely go again!

We had been searching for a good Shepherd's Pie, and after reading the Travel Advertiser reviews, tried The Sussex. We were not disappointed. My fiance ordered the Shepherd's Pie - a bottom layer of shredded lamb and vegetables, with a top layer of perfectly seasoned mashed potatoes. The chef put together a wonderful medley of sauteed vegetables over pasta. The... More

Had a lovely meal for two here, fillet steak was extra special and staff went above and beyond with the service that provided... Really nice place, would definitely go again.

The Sussex was recommended to us by a friend who lived in Dublin. It is definitely a place that "locals" know about -- we seemed to be the only "tourists" there! Beautiful use of upstairs space -- airy, high ceilings, light and welcoming. Service was spot on, food was local and fresh, with dishes to what we had seen on... More

Good service and delicious food, I had the shepards pie it was to die for. My husband had the Sussex burger and he said it was beautiful ( unusual for him to say)

The Sussex was right down the street from our guesthouse and was so good we ate there twice! Not only did they have a great selection of beer and a wonderful cask aged cider at the time, but the food was amazing! I had a seafood linguine which had more seafood than any seafood dish I've ever had before. But... More

A short walk from our hotel, we found this place was nearby via Tripadvisor. I first entered the pub downstairs and was rather surprised to find it was a, shall we say, 'proper' pub, and not at all what i was expecting. I had, of course, entered via the wrong door. The restaurant door/stairs are just round the corner. We... More

We were looking for a restaurant that was within walking distance of our hotel & this was an easy 10 minute walk along the waterway. The restaurant is upstairs, nice, clean and the waitresses were very nice (and especially patient with my grump faced father who could not understand what kind of beer they had). We were not that full... More

My first restaurant coming to Ireland and it was amazing ! Amazing servers who were inattentive and made our meal more enjoyable. A little small and crowded, a little slow but considering the amount of people there was good. Recommend anytime of the day!

I attended the Sussex on recommendation with 3 business colleagues. The restaurant is located over a well-frequented pub so I didn't expect too much. However, the restaurant is excellent, very clean and with friendly staff. Decor is modern. We all went for the 3 course dinner menu and all concluded that the food could not be faulted. The wine on... More
