    Foley's On The Mall: Pub/Restaurant - Exellent Combo

    by Ekaterinburg Written Sep 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Foley's on the Mall is at the junction of Main Stret and The Mall and definitely caters to all tastes.
    You can have a drink there, a snack or a full meal. The menu is broad and their home-made soupsand pies are something of a delicacy. You can economise with the home made burger or splash out on the steak or the salmon but in between there are also lots of good pasta and stir-fry options.

    Favorite Dish: Foley's do a deal called 'A PINT AND A PIE' for EUR12 and this is certainly a front-runner for me.
    The pies are chicken and mushroom and beef and guinness and both are equally delicious.
    Their desert menu is particularly fine and on a recent visit with the other half, we settled on sharing the lemon meringue and death by chocolate as the only way to cater for both our piggy instincts. It was GOOD!
    Foleys is also a very nice pub and a reasonable place for a cappucino or tea.

    barca: Tapas in Lismore

    by Ekaterinburg Written Sep 22, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Barca is almost as much an experience as it is a restaurant. After you get over the shock of finding- YES, A TAPAS BAR- in downtown Lismore, then getting in there to check it out becomes essential. From the elegant wine bar at the front, through the waiting area in the middle (complete with open fire in season) to the equally elegant restaurant out back, you will not be disappointed.
    Everything here is imaginatively rendered , a tasteful dollop of Spanish ambience, food and culture but not one that doesn't acknowledge that this Tapas bar is in Ireland and run by two extremely talented and creative Irish women.

    Favorite Dish: In the wine bar you can nibble on small portion Tapas for about EUR4 per nibble. Portions are generous and this is an excellent way of sampling the fare to come in the restaurant, where the same are available as full dishes. I've never made it to the back restaurant yet, you simply have to have a reservation, but the deepfried calamari, and the duck on toasted croutons were absolutely delectable.

    Foley's on the Mall: Lunch in Lismore

    by Dabs Updated Aug 24, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stopped by the tourist office to get a recommendation for lunch, they had menus for many of the local restaurants there. It was a bit early for lunch and several places weren't open until 12:30pm so we settled on Foley's. We were the 1st lunch patrons of the day, I think it was already 11:30 or maybe even noon. We found a nice spot on the outdoor patio, service was quick and polite although not overly friendly. There's also indoor dining.

    Favorite Dish: I ordered fish and chips (€10.50), I had to have it at least once on this trip, and it was alright, nothing out of the ordinary and not a terribly large portion. I was much more satisfied with my F&C experience later in the trip at Leo Burdock's in Dublin. Hubby had a pot pie of some sort (€10.50), I'm not a pot pie fan so I didn't taste it.

    Lunch for 2 without drinks was €21.

  • O'Briens chop house: seafood lovers come here!!!

    by goodfoodlover Written Aug 20, 2011

    This is a very special place. The food is out of this world. The restaurant is olde world with a modern twist, and the staff are very friendly and work very hard. we have come here three times and each time has been gastro paradise. this is a perfect place for a quiet dinner for two or within a large group.This restaurant really is a food lovers heaven!!!!! Booking is strongly advisable especially over the weekend.

    Favorite Dish: I have sampled many dishes so it is very difficult to pinpoint one as my favorite, although i must say that the lobster tails (starter) are to die for. very juicy, cooked just right, oh i'm getting hungry just at the thought!!! The Duck is gorgeous too, it was melt in the mouth, not much mastification required.

  • O'Briens Chop House: Wow what good food

    by great_golf_weather Written Jul 31, 2010

    Ambience was excellent, from the first step inside. Starters were excellent. Steak is to die for, from a craft butcher across the street, but the puddings.....the rhubarb crumble was one of the best desserts we have tried in ages, all of us tried it and wished we had more to share. Mu daughter said her steak was the best she ever had. It is not cheap, but worth every penny. Give it a try

    Favorite Dish: Rhubarb crumble, it was freshly made so took 10 minutes, and even our kids who don't like rhubarb loved it, one to remember from this trip.
