We visited Caragh last year and found it excellent so we returned again ladt week. Once again we were not disappointed. Food was excellent with good big portions served quickly and piping hot. The staff were nice and friendly and we have no hesitation in recommending this little gem.

Had mixed grill, priced at E18.95 which would be average enough for the area. It was really nice, large portion. Found the staff very unfriendly. After ordering, the cultery were 'slapped' onto the table. The staff while not serving gather in a corner at the top of the restaurant talking, while staring down at the customers, Found this very uncomfortable. A customer advised one of the staff that she remembered her from last year and she just said oh really, she could have engaged more with the customer (it wasn't that busy at the time). The customer made the effort to come back, she could have made the effort to engage with her. Another staff member passed my table and sneezed without putting her hand up to her mouth.
To finish on a positive note, the menu is good, offered 3 courses for E19.95 or many forms of a grill, eg liver, eggs, bacon. Staff just need to put in a better effort.

We, a family of 4 adults and 3 children have just eaten in The Caragh Restaurant this evening. The facade & interior may look a little off putting but it really is a bit of a rough diamond! Now, fine dining it is not but if you are looking for a good value "proper" dinner you can't go wrong here. The staff were extremely friendly , helpful & attentive. The menu is pretty good with something to suit everyone particularly a family. The children's menu is very good with more than just the usual nuggets & chips on offer. We availed of the 3 course meal which for €19.99 was amazing. Plenty of vegetables, potatoes and the steaks were cooked to perfection. Our bill came to €119 with four 3 course meals, one 2 course, 2 children's meals incl ice creams, and 4 drinks. All enjoyed immensely..if we were staying here tomorrow night we would eat here agin & we are only sorry we ate in the hotel restaurant last night... Give it a go - you won't be disappointed.

I had the liver and bacon which unfortunately was overlooked. Bland menu was underwhelming. Restaurant was very busy and staff seemed unhelpful and unfriendly because of it. Price was reasonable.

The Caragh Restaurant was recommended to us by a couple of American tourists when we asked the bartender for a local eatery. They said they were so impressed that they ate there two days in a row. My husband loved his Irish Stew and my Shephard's Pie was excellent. All our food was fresh, hot, and tasty! The atmosphere is a little too open and lacks ambiance, but the food makes up for that.
