“Lovely family run restaurant”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We stayed in Ennistymon for two nights and ate in Byrne's on both nights.
The food was really good on both occasions. The crab cake starter is delicious and the fresh cod very tasty as was the steak.
The service is extremely friendly and we got a warm welcome back on the second night, which was really nice..
There is a lovely ambiance in the restaurant and there are some wonderful views of the cascades on the river, with some outdoor seating for those nice summer days.
The restaurant has a selection of craft beers and ciders as well as a wonderful wine selction for sale as well as consumption in the restaurant.
Overall, our two visits to Byrne's were very enjoyable and we will definitely return on our next trip to Ennistymon.

“Great Meals and Service”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

We ate here two of the three evenings that we were in town. The staff was very friendly, the food very good, and the view of the Cascades just adds to the entire experience.

“Great Seafood”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

October 13th 2013
I had lunch in this lovely bistro, with a view you could only wish for - the Ennistymon cascades in full flow. I had Cod for my main course, it was beautifully cooked and its freshness was beyond question. It was served in a lovely Dill & Mustard sauce, this was served with a side order of vegetables. A side serving of vegetables can mean over cooked and sad. But I had sweet potato, green beans, carrots and rattatue served in a hollowed out cogette. I would have loved the vegetables as a serving on their own. The flavour was really lovely, nothing was over cooked and they were hot. I had a jug of water with my meal. I did not drink, but they had an impressive menu of beers. I could not delay for dessert of coffee - that's for the next day!! Well Done.

“Lucky pick!”
Reviewed October 9, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place while returning from Cliffs of Moher. Food was excellent, fresh and flavorful. Atmosphere was nice. Have an excellent beer selection, including gluten free options. Had something for everyone in the group. Definitely recommend!

“great lunch”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We noticed the lovely outside terrace from the road and inside we were greeted by some very efficient staff.
Outside a really nice view of the waterfalls
We only had soup and a panini but the rest of the menu looked most inviting.
A nice choice of bottled beers too
Thank you
