For anyone looking for delicious food I would certainly recommend The Forge. Good choice in the food on offer, and the owners carefully include locally produced ingredients as much as possible. The Forge is suitable for families and couples, and you are always sure of a warm welcome from Pauric, Irene and their team.

We had a family birthday here. I had read the reviews beforehand and always start with the worst ratings. I read that the food was somewhat bland and that they use cheap wine glasses that are usually found in pubs. The reviews were right !!! The wine glasses are TERRIBLE! Having said that, the staff were friendly and efficient, the... More

Booked a birthday celebration meal here a couple of months ago as a special treat. This place is not cheap, for us at least, but worth it. Service was really good, the owner was a lady and so helpful, just lovely. The food was such a step above your 'pub grub' type night out, and just so memorable. For the... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening at the Forge which was enhanced by the personable and genuine attention from Irene who with her husband Padraig owns this lovely restaurant. We ate from the main menu although the early bird menu (approx €30) was also available and seems good value for money. For the food we enjoyed, €45 for the three course... More
