This restaurant was recommended to us by our air bee and bee host (details on request). It has quite an unassuming frontage, but don't let that fool you. Our second attempt at getting a booking was successful - we had been advised to book. The...food is excellently cooked and presented. Quite a good selection of options on the menu, but few enough to let you know that it's all cooked fresh. The dining area is bright and airy and there was a good atmosphere. This place is not cheap - but it is absolutely value for money. I have no hesitation in recommending it. One thing - the kitchen is open to the dining area and dishes are plated up and placed on the counter for the servers. Now, I like that idea. It says "we're not hiding anything". It suggests confidence in their offerings. And that's a good thing. However, if you ARE going to do that you have to manage the kitchen/dining room interface, and I'm afraid that means telling your Chef to go easy with his criticism of his underlings and serving staff. Everyone needs coaching as they're learning, but bullying generally doesn't yield the best results in that department.More

We had a gorgeous lunch here as we stopped in Cashel on our way to Kerry. The lunch menu is imaginative and extremely tasty. Elevating classics like chicken ceasar salad with a crispy egg and making the humble burger incredible because of the great quality...of the beef and the really good cheese on top. There is also a lovely crispy chicken dish which was also delicious. The people here know good food, how to source it, cook it and serve it with a smile - we'll definitely be back,More

Lovely renovated Restraunt in Cashel. Had a lovely family Sunday lunch there recently. Food was just excellent with a great selection for all. It’s priced really well. Staff were so helpful. Well worth to visit the garden at the rear

Enjoyed every minute, from exploring the photos on the walls to experiencing the ambience of the back garden. The burger was divine. Emily gave exceptional service. “I’ll be back”.

Mikey Ryans is a nice, modern, well decorated dining space in the centre of Cashel. I have eaten here on six or seven occasions over the past years and unfortunately my experiences of this place have not been consistent. The main reason I go to...a restaurant/cafe is to eat good food in good company. Here it is hit or miss! This has resulted in some very disappointing meals with overly expensive price tags. On one occasion before Christmas, when visiting Cashel, I was treating some friends and family members to lunch. To say that I was embarrassed by the food presented is an understatement. It was tasteless and very overpriced. There was a vegetarian in the group and his meal was particularly disappointing and sparse. However, I have eaten some quite good meals here also. As yet I have not experienced a really excellent meal. Usually the staff are pleasant and well trained. But consistency in food quality is needed.More

We love stopping in Mikey Ryans when on the road through Cashel. The food and decor are fabulous and the staff so friendly. However, since our last visit our daughter (10) was diagnosed coeliac. This visit really brought home the limited choice for kids (and...adults) that cannot take gluten. On the kids menu she had no option other than the soup or the melon. She settled for mashed potato with plain chicken from the adult menu. How easy it would be to have the meatballs without breadcrumbs or the gravy without using flour to thicken. Maybe even some gluten free pasta in the press for little coeliac visitors! We still love coming and had an excellent meal other than this minor item. Perhaps with the opening of the Cashel Palace some chnages could be afoot…?More

We booked a table by phone in Mikey Ryan’s on Wednesday evening for New Year’s Eve and was delighted to get a table for 5:30 . We visited their website beforehand to check their a la carte menu and prices. We arrived at the restaurant...and observed the outside menu as per the website one. However, inside the restaurant we were presented with a set menu comprising of 4 courses for 75e . We were not informed at the time of booking that this was the case nor did it state this any where on their website . We asked was there an a la carte menu available and were told that this was the only menu for the night so we were very annoyed but reluctantly decided to stay. We understand that under consumer law, if a restaurant provides menus, then the prices should be the same as prices displayed outside or at the entrance. We feel we were duped into spending €75 each regardless of the number of courses we chose to eat.More

Ordered a burger with chips and salad. The burger was nice but the salad consisted of a leaf of lettuce and a very miniscule salad vegetable on the burger. The chips were a mixture of over and undercooked chips. Overpriced.
