Brilliant food, beautiful location... what more could you want. Ideal for small functions too, they have a few rooms that cater for say 15 - 20 guests. Restaurant overlooks the golf course and with plenty of glass, you have a great panoramic view of the course. Just a small detour (maybe 2 - 3 miles) off the M6 at Kilbeggan.... More

With local confirmation/family gatherings in abundance today, it was extremely busy. Even the auxiliary rooms were equally full. Many choices to pick from, with that number of people very... More

A lovely spot located on a parkland course in Westmeath, near Tyrellspass. Food selection was good and service was friendly and quick. Restauraunt is located in a lovely sun room on the west side of the house. Great for a family dinner or a solo food run.

I recently organised a family dinner and chose the New Forest. I wasn't sure how it would be but at €22 for Sunday Lunch I figured we couldn't go too far wrong. From the first phone call to book they were very accommodating. There were 11 people and they immediately offered us a private room. We ate in the Library... More

Myself and my daughter stayed here recently to get together for some quality time and for my daughter to meet our new puppy. The accommodation is well laid out and very comfortable. The cleaner had been a little under pressure as I arrived early so she had to call again, but this was dealt with immediately. The lodge was lovely... More

I've played golf a number of times on the New Forest Golf Course over the past 10 years and on each occasion availed of the restaurant service. I have always found the food to be excellent and good value. The staff both in the Pro Shop and the restaurant were always very friendly and most helpful.
