Actually all the food looked... More

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

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

Amazing food, great vibe, a brilliant place to meet up with friends for a catch up with coffee or something stronger, a lovely cozy outdoor area. This place is a Waterford institution, make sure you visit it and definitely get the shoestring chips!!!

An easy going pub which serves tasty and large portions of food. The staff were really friendly and accomodating seen as there were 10 of us. The food came within minutes of... More

In our search for the perfect local pub when we moved here, we quickly came across Geoff's. Everyone seems to love it and it's always busy. My husband raves about the burgers.

Drank here in the 1980s and this was my first time back. The interior of the place has not changed and still has the same great atmosphere about it. I had smoked chicken pasta with panini garlic bread which I will go back for more -I just wont stay away so long next time.
