Description: For intimate dining and sumptuous wines, indulge at the Restaurant Merlot. A delightful mix of European and classical Irish flavors, choose from the exciting table d'hote menu or the sophisticated a la carte menu. Pan fried king scallops, seared fillet of Irish beef and a daily selection of locally sourced fresh seafood are just a few things to tantalize the taste buds. And to complement your choice, we will help you select the perfect wine from our extensive range of display in the cellar.

We ate here while staying next door at the Castlecourt Hotel. While its definitely a Hotel restaurant and the few diners seem lost in the very big dining space the food was absolutely fantastic. The confit chicken spring roll was a work of art and all the food was presented beautifully and tasted great. The service apart from forgetting the wine order was fine although not getting a bill to view and having the cost automatically charged to our room was a bit off putting.

We thought that both the quality of food served here, coupled with the friendliness and efficiency of the staff was exceptional. We ate here on three evenings out of four and would have eaten on all four evenings only the restaurant was closed for our last night. The menu varied each evening but was consistantly of the a very high standard. Nothing was too much trouble for the restaurant staff who were extermely pleasant in all their dealings with us. It was a delightful experience to dine here and we look forward to visiting again at a future date.

A really nice restaurant in the beautiful Plazza hotel. The food is of good quality but can be a little busy in the summer. The bar in this hotel also serves great value lunch options.
