There's a carpark (€4.50) and then a bit of a well marked maze to the restaurant. Food was good and service was quick. Obviously very popular with tour groups but we didn't feel crowded or rushed. The food is good but it was the wait staff that makes this stop wonderful. Friendly, attentive and joyful.

We arrived in Cashel around noon and missed breakfast at the couple of places that served it. We chose this place and selected an already prepared plate from the serving line as we weren't sure what the food choices were. It was different. Not good, not bad, but different. The restaurant was clean and the staff friendly.

We visitied the Rock of Cashel on a week day and were looking for a meal nearby after we finished. We happened upon this place, went to the informal buffet style facility upstairs. This is within very easy walking distance of the rock. The food was very good, we enjoyed the sheperds pie. We noticed that the owner (i assume)... More

We hired Michael & Joe to cater for our Wedding in August. They went above and beyond the call of duty and we couldn't be happier with them. We planned our Wedding from overseas, in our absence they went to our venue with our family to look over every aspect of the day in detail and made sure everything was... More

We ate upstairs at the buffet (carvery?) location. The food was excellent -- fresh, filling, and very reasonably priced. Although the place was packed and somewhat challenging to move around in, the staff did an awesome job of attending to everyone and everything.

We parked behind the restaurant which is the parking closest to the Rock. We needed to eat and did. The food was not bad and not too expensive. They were giving free passes for a family of four to the Rock. They may still be doing it. We had the OPW pass so we gave our tickets to a family... More

Good food, friendly staff. A bit on the tourist-y side, but forgivably so. Convenient to The Rock and Hore Abbey, but be mindful that the parking lot doesn't accept credit cards and the only ATM is in the middle of town.

If you want good food and are in a hurry to have a group served quickly and with a friendly smile, this is the place! I had a group of 30 there and since it is cafeteria style upstairs we were able to go through the line quickly and select and the food is really very delicious. Everyone was very... More
