Geoff's Bar is meanwhile somewhat of an institution in Waterford City. The old-fashioned interior is attractive and gives a warm feeling, the staff is friendly and helpful, and both food and drinks are very good. Geoff's is one of the few places that serve the real 'Pilsener Urquell' on tap, and recently they have also added a number of local... More

Found this gem on a recommendation from a friend. Beautiful old world style spacious bar. It has a neat collective menu. I had a madras curry and I really couldn't fault it, my partner had Cajun chicken fillet burger which by all accounts was delicious. Also the barman was very informative on the local craft beer. Gets two thumbs up... More

Stopped in on Saturday afternoon for some grub. Menu is very varied and lots of choice for any palette. I had the goats cheese quiche special and it was GORGEOUS! Mouth watering now as I'm typing this. Hubby had the Chicken & Chorizo pie and again it was so tasty, plenty of filling with lots of chicken. We got the... More

Visited on a Thursday evening in August whilstb enjoying a few days away with the family. Very relaxed atmosphere and super friendly service. Food was excellent. Kids loved the pasta and the fish while the adults enjoyed excellent curry and another fish dish. Would highly recommend.

Visited Geoff's for a few drinks with friends on a Friday evening and decided to stay for food. The service was excellent and prompt and the food was delicious - all the main courses we had were less than €15 - I had a steak sandwich cooked exactly as ordered. The curries looked excellent too. Actually all the food looked... More

I spent 15 years globetrotting as an IT consultant and I believe Geoffs to be one of the best pubs you can visit anywhere in the world. Everything about it is nigh on perfection. The eclectic decor, the surprising scale yet the assortment of nooks and crannies so important in the authentic Irish pub experience. It feels like this pub... More

My husband and I stopped in here on a Sunday afternoon for couple of drinks and ended up having lunch also. The menu offers great choice. We had the Crab Bruschetta and the Battered Calamari - wow! Absolutely delicious. By far the nicest seafood dishes we've had in Waterford in a very long time. Both dishes were so fresh and... More
