This restaurant was recommended by the wait staff at the Oakwood Hotel. Our meal was above average but not special. Wait staff needs to be more attentive. The menu had good diversity.

This was a nice find within walking distance of the Bunratty Castle and Hotel. It was actually one of the best meals of our Ireland trip. I highly recommend the seafood/fresh fish.

Certainly not the cheapest but in my view well worth the price. Restaurant was pretty full tonight (Wednesday), and a nice atmosphere- always a good sign they are doing... More
