“Great Food, great location, great view, great staff”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

What more can you say about Goosers, my favourite spot in Ballina/Killaloe for lunch or dinner, on a nice day sit outside for a nice view of Killaloe and the mountains behind or on a winters day sit inside near the roaring fire and enjoy the Irish Stew... they need to bring back the Guinness Beef casserole it was the best !!!! Everything else on the menu is great

“Recommended”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Gooser was recommended to us and although not the cheapest the quality of the food,location and atmosphere in the place makes it good value for money.
Well worth a visit you will not be disappointed.

“Good pub grub”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

and a great place for a few pints. But, I wish the food was more sophisticated! If you are starving, not watching the calories, and like a pub atmosphere, then this is good for that.

“Getting Expensive”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We Always go to Goosers. there is not a person we have taken to Killaloe/Ballina over the past 10years +, that has not eaten in Goosers. The food is good, always has been but the place is pricey. Calling in Yesterday after the St Patrick's parade the place was really busy with mostly locals which is always a good sign. But I am not sure that the food is as good as you could expect for the same price in a dedicated restaurant rather than what has derived from a locals bar into a "Gastro Pub" ?
Due mainly to the price of the Children's menu alone I don't think I can give more than 2* for the Family with children rating.

“Delicious with a wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

5 of us dined here on 31st January.. We were welcomed with a lovely smile by Suzanne and brought through to the dining room.. I have to say that the fire burning behind our table and the subtle music made us so relaxed and settled immediately.. After a bit of banter, we ordered.. Crab claws, fish cakes, goats cheese and steaks (all cooked to perfection) we indulged in a wonderful pino noir.. We all agreed that we are so lucky to be living here and having Goosers on our doorstep.. Looking forward to our next meal.. Well done to all..
