Had a great meal here over the weekend, our waitress was very friendly, efficient and attentive, the food was superb, my partner had the duck starter with creamed cabbage, a fab delicate starter, followed by turbot, scallops, crispy bacon and parsnip puree.... all cooked to perfection ... just divine ... I had a salad which was so fresh and crispy, very tasty.... and for desert .... Creme Brulee..... was one of the best I've tasted..... all in all a fantastic meal, lovely surrounds and great staff.....

“Really good restaurant”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

On our way back from West Cork we decided to visit the Brehon hotel and Danu restaurant.
What a pleasant surprise we got.
Though we just dropped in without a reservation the staff made us very welcome and showed us to our table with a minimum of delay.

The service was very professional and friendly and the restaurant had a great atmosphere.
The menu was varied and interesting.

There was also a set menu for approx €28.00 and as it was almost the same as the main menu we went for that and it did not disappoint.
The Barbary Duck breast starter with butter squash creamed cabbage with honey and clove glaze was very good; As was the Jack McCarthy pudding with beef tomato and red wine gel.

The main course of Salt Baked Sea Bass, cracked at the table and the SearedTurbot & Scallops were done to perfection.

We were delighted with our meal and well pleased to get such a quality meal at such a low price.
We will certainly be back

“Breakfast/Dinner @ Danu at Brehon”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Visited here in April for 2 nights. Simply fabulous. Breakfast is a buffet with anything you can even image, they have it. Service was excellent 5 ++ Food was really well prepared & Hot. Had a birthday dinner while here & they supplied a sweet desert with Happy Birthday written in chocolate sauce - what a great experience. I would recommend eating here if in the area, or. Stay at the Brehon then you can have your own breakfast & dinner here. Highly recommend - would return on my next visit

“Excellent food served by highly efficient and friendly staff”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

I was in the Danu restaurant in the Brehon on Friday 30th of May. Madina served us. She was so friendly and all the staff were highly efficient. We had the 3 course meal for 27 euro. Madina explained the specials so well and they were really good. It was my friends birthday and she got a beautiful desert with birthday greetings written on the plate in chocolate sauce. A nice touch. I will be going back there again in August but decided we will stay next time due to the wonderful service we were given by all the staff. Eileen from Cork.
