We recently celebrated a family occasion here, everything was perfect & nothing was too much trouble for the staff (namely Barry & Kate). Food was excellent, would highly recommend this venue for any occasion....

we recently held our parents golden wedding celebration here,approx 75 people attended.The food & service were outstanding & all the extra's(red carpet,champagne on arrival,gold helium balloons & a background musician) all added to make the occasion a wonderful & highly memorable evening.I would highly recommend this venue for any party big or small & it was very reasonably priced...WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK..

We got married in Cabra Castle and we were looking for a place to have a meal for around 50 people the next night for those who were staying around. As we are not from the area we rang around a few places in Kingscourt and Carrickmacross. We chose Fiddler's Elbow because when we spoke to Barry Hughes the manager, he couldn't have been more helpful. He set up tables for 70 people as we weren't sure of our exact numbers in the nightclub area. We were greeted with a red carpet, pink champagne and balloons. There was a buffet of chicken curry and beef stroganoff, chips, rice and salads. There was plenty left over for seconds. We served wedding cake for afters which the staff cut up and served on plates. We went through options for after the meal and Barry brought us over to the Goalpost pub and kept an area reserved for us. Everyone commented on how nice the food and how friendly and helpful the staff were. It looked as if we had spent a lot more per person thean we did.

Lovely restaurant nice and spacious not to crowded and always a good buzz around. Recently had a musician in playing the piano which was nice while eating dinner.
Delicious food no matter what you get and outstanding sauce with the chicken wing (favorite of mine).
Always service with a smile and just overall a very good restaurant.
Would defiantly recommend trying it out, which good menu and prices also : ))))

I had my daughters christening here with my family, we had a private area which was decorated with lovely pink helium balloons it was lovely coming from the church to our own area and decorated so nicely a little luxury :-) I ordered a cupcake tower which the staff had set in a little table with tea light candels set around it was a really nice touch made a feature of the tower all my family commented on how nice it was laid out.We were treated like royalty always asked by the friendly staff if everything was ok also excellent for kids wit a good changing area! The food was soooo lovely I had a two course set menu for everyone which was very reasonably priced everyone was catered for with choice of 3 starters and mains we also got plenty of side dishes veg and mash and extra chips after that we all had tea and coffees and the staff served out the cupcakes!!The staff the food the service all top top marks really made my Daughters Christening a day to remember!Thank you sooo much
