This was my 2nd time eating at this establishment. The 1st time a few years ago I ate in the dining room & the fare was only average.

On this occasion & it being very busy the decision was to have food in the bar.

Service was provided by two people, one elderly gentleman & the other a young lad. It being a very busy night the service was excellent & the two jelled to perfection.

The food was a little expensive but my steak, cooked medium rare was exactly as I ordered.

Aswell as the good food, the historic atmosphere & decor is very appealing & certainly well worth a visit.

We stopped in Cashel on August 20th, 2013. The restaurants with an appealing menu, good rep, and child-friendly on the high street were full and we happened across the Cashel Palace. Luckily the menu was posted on the gatepost.
So we went in to the Bishop's Buttery in the basement.
Lovely cozy place with a good big of history.
They made a bowl of buttered past (not on the menu) especially for our 5 year old.
the food was great and good value. The seafood chowder was excellent! The right balance of chunkiness, creaminess and body.
But the most outstanding element was the service. You would think the staff had won the lottery they were so upbeat. The warmth was genuine and the fun interaction with our daughter was outstanding. They let her "help" with settling the bill.
Just go there. It will put a smile on your face that will last for days.

We visited the Cashel Palace because it is where Guinness was invented and so we descended to the bar to try the brew. We were made very welcome by the staff, who did not mind us wandering around the public rooms, and I would certainly like to go back to stay there in the future.

Whilst in the bar, we spotted a visitor with Soup served with Irish Black Treacle and Walnut Soda Bread. We had enjoyed a huge breakfast earlier, but asked if we could just sample the Soda Bread. The staff provided a generous complimentary taster, and I can tell you categorically, it was the best Soda Bread I have ever tasted! It also goes very well with Guinness.

We were made to feel valued customers even though we were not eating a full meal.

We stopped in the Cashel Palace bar on the way home from Dublin. We had the whole bar to ourselves and had a good meal of Steak with plenty Vegetables and homemade fries. The chef went to all the trouble of making Scrambled eggs for our 4 year old and the Barman Andrew was a very nice young man. Full of chat and very good with the children. Would have liked to try the restaurant and will definitely stop again. Highly recommended.
