We dropped in here on a visit to Killaloe and for coffee and a rest after climbing the hill from the riverside. We were made very welcome and the coffee and cakes were very welcome. They had gluten free cakes on offer if you have a problem with wheat (my daughter does)

Deceptively large café. Delicious burgers which are worth the wait. The owners were nice guys and welcoming of families. Kids had toasted sandwiches and the bill was adjusted downward very reasonably to address the kids meals. The toasties had lovely home cooked ham and what I think was Swiss cheese, either way the kids loved them.

We had a lovely Sunday brunch as the culmination of a family week end celebration . Ten of the 14 of us were not from Ireland. The Bistro set up a separate room for our noisy group and were very attentive and patient with some of our special requests--even the fussy vegetarians. Great portions and value. Whenever I visit, we... More

We enjoyed a cozy family lunch here last week - everything was delicious from the soup of the day to the burger and chips. Staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere was warm and pleasant. If passing it is worth eating here.

We were at Wood Brothers for a large, pre-arranged gathering on a Sunday morning. The atmosphere is contemporary rustic. The food was tasty (vegetarian breakfast for hubby, spinach and cheese omelette for myself), and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

The breakfast is fantastic - such an array of items, all of which are high quality items. Have visited plenty of times for lunch too. Disappointed that the lunch menu is much more concise than previous years but the standard of food is still excellent. Ensure to check their daily lunch specials board as there are always some really nice... More

We just Arrived in Killaloe and were hungry after our long travel from Canada. Checked with some locals and they recommended this spot. Well we were blown away with the Lunch special an Irish Stew .. served over mashed and filled with tender pieces of baby lamb, carrots, rosemary and pan jucies. A very generous serving it was. Highly enjoyable
