Description
Kelly's Foundry Grillhouse has, in short space of time, become one the favourite restaurants for Portlaoise locals and visitors alike. Black Rock is our speciality - this is an exciting and healthy dining concept where you cook your own choice of meat (all our beef is dry aged and 100% Irish from Hicks in Cork) on a volcanic stone. Enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and tantalizing aromas as your food cooks in front of you!
