Initially we only called in for coffee and cake which were both delicious. We enjoyed it so much that we called back for lunch later in the week. There is a good, varied menu catering for trendsetters as well as the more traditional meals. The staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return next time we are in the... More

The bistro was recommended by a local and I was not disappointed. I had the goat cheese/beet root salad and a bowl of potato leek soup. I was there for a late lunch and the bistro was not crowded and quiet. I ate my lunch and retired to the back courtyard for a delicious cup of Chai Latte. I took... More

I don't usually eat out for breakfast but a visitor wanted to go for a traditional Irish breakfast before heading back to the US. We chose Wood Brothers. Both the full Irish and the veggie versions were excellent - I might have to have breakfast out more often!

I am not a person who brunches out but there's always a chance that this old leopard could change her spots. The husband, younger son and I were enjoying the unpressured hospitality of family in Killaloe and so brunch in Wood Brothers' was probably a chance for J to get away from the kitchen. What struck me first was the... More

A group of ten of us stopped by for lunch with no reservation !!!. The staff were fantastic and facilitated the group without any hassle. While we only had a light lunch, the food was very good and I would certainly be going back.

Thank John H
