Description: A warm welcome awaits you at the Fairways Bar. Just a five minute drive from Nenagh town centre, and a mere one minute drive from Nenagh Golf Club, this award winning bar and restaurant has an extensive menu and is renowned for its seafood specials. Our chefs pride themselves on using only the finest local produce whether it be from land or sea. At The Fairways we cook everything from fresh. We make all our own ice-creams, flavoured butters and breads in-house. At weekends local diners can avail of a complimentary Daimler Limousine service. Our mantra is "Love Food & Love The Fairways".

Our server was very patient with our questions & requests. A yummy complimentary starter, " a take on beef Wellington " as she put it. Very tasty mouthful of beef & brioche type bread. We shared the sea bass , roasted veggies & the best ever sticky toffee pudding with ice cream! Then as we were in the car park Jeff, chef/ owner started chatting with us. He was delightful & invited us back in to have a sample of Guiness as neither of us have ever acquired a taste for it! We quite enjoyed the whole experience! Thanks Jeff!

Sometimes word of mouth is a wonderful thing, as friends of my parents from Galway had been raving about a restaurant they had visited outside of Kilruane. Not living too far away, we went over the April Bank holiday. It was an excellent experience and highly recommeneded.

The food is all locally sourced, and extremely well prepared. I had crap cakes for starters, the Duck for the main course and sticky toffee pudding to finish. All were cooked to perfection. All of the party were very pleased with the food.

What most impressed me on my was that one of party is very intolerant to Lactose, eggs and wheat. Normally (and sadly) that rules most deserts. However not in Fairways. Our waitress, who was very friendly and good humoured, realised that no desert on menu was appropriate,
disappeared into the kitchen. 15mins later the Chef (and owner) came out with carved pinapple filled with delicious fruit. It was lovely gesture, and we really appreciated it.

We have been back several times since then and I would highly recommend the Fairways.
If you happen to be in that neck of the woods, its well worth visiting.

This place is a couple of miles from the main road, so your very unlikely to happen upon it. We were on an Ulsterbus Tour, and we stopped off for a spot of lunch. The staff were ready, and waiting for us, which was nice, as we only had a short stop. It's a lovely looking restaurant/bar, and the staff are friendly and chatty. The golf course is just up the road, and I'd imagine they get a lot of their customers from there. The problem is, because it's so remote, you have to drive.

Dear Letterkennycaint,

Thank you for posting a review on Trip Advisor. We regularly greet coach tours here at The Fairways. We are not too far from Nenagh town - just over 3 miles and very close to Junctions 24 & 25 on the motorway. Nenagh is a bustling town with a fantastic reputation for food and we are delighted to include ourselves in that stable. While we enjoy a strong local trade, our food and reputation attracts diners and visitors from afar. We have a great clip on YouTube that we feel represents us in our true light and that is how many diners have discovered us. We love interacting with our coach tours. Your driver takes a scenic route for your drive to The Fairways. This gives passengers an opportunity to enjoy the local scenery. I hope, like many of your fellow passengers, that you decide to take a tour with Ulster Bus again. We would very much love to see you return!

We have strong connections to Letterkenny with our owner's sister living there - Joan loves visiting Donegal - loves her trips to McElhinney's Store in Ballybofey.

Kind regards,

I have been to the Fairways a number of times and always enjoyed the meal and the ambience. I recently had lunch there, two courses for about €16. My companions has excellent dishes and were very satisfiied. I ordered chicken and broccoli bake for the main and it was bit dry/over cooked. That aside the lunch was a great success, the staff were very friendly and there was a nice buzz to the place. I would definitely recommend.
