We booked a table for 9 and despite a difficult time for the hotel with a wedding on and the festival outside, we were looked after very well. Importantly, the food was very good as well with plenty of choice and an excellent children's menu.

A lovely little charm of a place. We booked a luxury room which didn't disappoint. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast caters for everyone. Lots of choice and lovely tastes all round.

Hotel car parking is limited and can be a problem on busy days, may need to park on the Main Street.

Last night wasn't our first visit to the Riverbank restaurant in The Courtyard hotel in Leixlip. In fact we were there before on numerous occasions, both at lunch time and for evening meals, and always enjoyed the experience. We are encouraged these days to support local businesses, but we don't frequent Riverbank on this merit alone. There is a good few restaurants in Leixlip, but having tried them all, Riverbank is always at the top of our list. This time again it proved that it deserves a glowing review.
The restaurant had lovely live piano music on Friday night, which created a nice buzz and ambience, helped by the fact that it was quite busy and lively. We were waited upon by Kevin, who was very friendly and knowledgable and took time and effort to help us with our choices of dishes. Because it was so busy, Kevin wasn't always on hand during the course of the evening, and we dealt with some other staff, which wasn't a problem as they were all very efficient and helpful.
Food was absolutely delicious. It was expertly cooked, beautifully presented and reflected thought and hard work put into its execution. Compliments to the Chef, he is clearly a man of great talent and experience.
Service wasn't very speedy, which was understandable, but we, for one, prefer an extended dining experience, rather that restaurants trying to fit two sittings into an evening and serving next dish before the previous one is eaten and enjoyed.
Riverbank delivers wonderful food, coupled with great service and reasonable prices, in lovely surroundings, and is a role model how to make a restaurant a popular, respected and well liked place.
