This restaurant is in the village of Clonegal, which is such a charming village. It is also worth paying a visit to Huntington Castle which is in the same village. Visited this restaurant twice now over this summer and on both occasions it has been very good. The food style could be described as modern French. The beef cheek that... More

As a family we've been visiting Sha-Roe bistro for many years and it's always been such a treat with delicious food and wonderful service. Booking is essential as it is a small but immensely popular restaurant and not open every day. The food is French cuisine but made with fresh local ingredients some highlights of our recent meal there was... More
