“Went to have our tea and ended with a gourmet meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

We were heading to a concert in Cabra Castle on Sunday 11th Nov 2012 and a freind recommended The Wishing Well for something to eat. We were delighted with what we got. They had a special, 3 course for 25euro. The chicken main course (I can't remember what it was called) was fabulous and the Eton Mess dessert was delicious.
The staff were excellent and the layout of the restaurant was very comfortable. Definately worth a second visit.

“lovely food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

We're not from kingscourt but have visited several times and always make it our business to visit the Well when we're nearby. We've been there several times in the past few years both as a couple and with friends, and have some real fond memories of the place. The food is top notch, the staff are friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere is great. Definitely one of the best places to eat around kingscourt!

“Dont judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

After a long walk in Dun An Ri we where all set for a lunch, the well had been advised to us by a few local friends,
Standing outside the well is not much to look at but very welcoming. We where welcomed at the door and sat straight away at a lovely two seater table, it was only when we got sitting down we started to take in the finished and expertly arranged decor, The lunch menus where simple and nicely written, there was a good selection of food both heavy and light, I ordered the lightly battered chicken in a bap with sweet chili sauce salad and homemade chips.
We did not have to wait long, the presentation was lovely the smells where fantastic and the taste was mind blowing.
The food was well priced and you got a lot of bang for your buck, the atmosphere was very relaxing and it made us even contemplate booking the wishing well for my 21st.
If I am still in kingscourt tomorrow I will surely be there for lunch.
