We were staying in Adare for a few days and glad we had dinner here. We came in with only 30 minutes til close, but Grace took great care of us and was a delight!

“Lovely food, quaint setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Blue door is a quaint spot right in town. We booked a table in advance and took our two children with us. The staff was friendly and helpful in choosing dishes that a 7 and 10 year old would enjoy. The menu has nice variety and a good by the glass wine list.

We really liked looking at the vast collection of art on the walls. It is eclectic and great for starting conversations. Overall, this is a wonderful spot.

“Grace-Kelly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

How could you not have fun "dining with" Audrey Hepburn (OK, next to a huge photo of her),"serenaded by" Michael Buble (OK, a CD), and being waited on by Grace-Kelly?
Our waitstaff, the team of Grace and Kelly made our evening so enjoyable. They graciously posed for a photo next to Audrey! They were so personable and Grace's recommendations were spot-on. The scallops and sauce were fabulous and like a previous reviewer I had to exercise restraint not to lick the plate clean! My husband's salmon was cooked beautifully. The toffee pudding was heavenly and the Bailey's Liqueur Tiramisu was really different and delicious. The cozy atmosphere was conducive to conversing with nearby diners, who were enjoying their meals as well. Sadly, it was our last night in Ireland or we would have definitely returned!

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013 via mobile

Cosy and quaint restaurant managed by polite friendly and helpful staff and offering top class food. I had the scallops which were immersed in the most fantastic sauce. My partner had the duck which he quoted as being better than any confit of duck hes ever had!!! Staff were friendly helpful and always on their toes ensuring their guests were well taken care off. Definitely 5 stars out of 5!!!!
