Sunday of a bank holiday weekend, time for a nice meal. All the good restaurants booked. Some one said try the Old Fort in Shannonbridge, eight miles from Ballinasloe. Took a chance and went with it, Turned out a good decision. Steak to die for, Chicken melt in your mouth. Good service.
Will call again.

We were on a boating trip. Got into Shannonbridge late on a Thursday night. Thought we were too late, but restaurant was very accommodating. Had two magnificent filet steaks and a Hake dish. Best steaks in a long while. If you are on the Shannon, be sure and put this place on your list, well worth a visit.

I was here recently in a group of about 20 or so and everyone had nothing but good things to say about the place. The food was fantastic and excellent portion sizes. They accommodated perfectly with no hassle at all for someone who was lactose intolerant. The staff were very friendly and even though it was a full house that night we were served quickly. The building is really nice too it's like an old castle gorgeous inside but they could do with some music just to liven it up a bit. The only complaint everyone had was that is was ROASTING in there we were all sweating and there was no windows open im not even sure if they did open! But overall fantastic place would definitely recommend.
