  • Gallagher's Boxty House

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dublin Restaurants

    If you are in Dublin, this is a MUST eat whether it is for lunch or dinner. This is Modern Irish Cuisine at its best. OK, so what is a Boxty? Boxties are the invention of Pádraic Óg Gallagher, a noted expert on potatoes (really). He developed 3 kinds of originally in Leitrim and they can be found in the border counties of Leitrim, Cavan and...

  • The Gingerbread house

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cork Restaurants

    I spotted this on the reviews and thought I should share the sorry news, The Ginger Bread House is no more. Sometime in 2006 (I think) they closed for renovations - and never re-opened - and well is it missed. It was a ramshackle place with odd chairs and tables. You could sit for house over one pot of tea and write your memoirs. Emo kids sat...

  • Irish Traditional and Galway Seafood

    4 out of 5 stars

    Galway Restaurants

    We checked into our Galway B&B and started looking for lunch. We drove out the Barna Road along Galway Bay, a spectacular drive. At one point there was a turnout with parking so we stopped for photos. After soaking in the gorgeous ocean view, we spotted Padraicin's Bar and Restaurant across the road. Perfect. We moved the car up to Padraicin's...

  • Gaby's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Killarney Restaurants

    As an adult my fleeting trips through Killarney were all business related, with meals confined to whatever hotel was chosen for the conference or meeting. Last year and this year I got to choose my restaurants, and I am so happy to be introduced to such a delight of food. Gaby's comes highly recommended, and when you are inside and see the wealth...

  • Texas Steakhouse

    4 out of 5 stars

    Limerick Restaurants

    Naturally being the carnivore that I am :-) I think the Steak is great however the Tex-Mex food sereved in this restauraunt is excellent, the staff ae friendly and the decor not unplesent, the location is good if your having a meal before going out on the town and it's not that expensive. The Chicken Fijhitas are excellent.

    This was the hotel where we stayed in Waterford. I noted that dinner was pretty good, and we also had an Irish breakfast in the morning.

  • Fishy Fishy Cafe

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Kinsale Restaurants

    This restaurant is DEFINITELY for seafood lovers but they do have one chicken dish also. Dining there recently I saw three people of a table of four having the chicken dish which is testament to the tastiness of everything on the menu. The atmosphere is absolutely great- you feel that you are on holiday- even when you aren't! The clams are...

  • The Half Door

    Dingle Restaurants

    I stumbled across this restaurant and what a delight. The restaurant is very expensive, but l have to say well worth the price. Not only for the food but the presentation and the staff who were very attentive. The restaurant specialises in seafood. For starters l had steamed cromane mussels with garlic and wine sauce and shared the smoked salmon...

  • Bloody stream pub

    4 out of 5 stars

    Howth Restaurants

    I first came across this pub after my second trip to Howth, when I stopped for a Guinness before boarding the DART back to Dublin. At the end of my recent trip to Howth in July 09, it was a very welcome refuge from the torrential downpour, that had soaked me to the skin! A roaring fire (in the middle of Summer!) was very welcome-as I dried off...

  • Kytelers Inn

    Kilkenny Restaurants

    Kytelers Inn was pure amazing, from the delicious food to the great music. This restaurant/pub was the perfect place to enjoy our first night in Ireland. I cannot remember exactly what we had to eat but I do remember it being wonderful. Our waiter was extremely nice and the atmosphere of the restaurant was very interesting. Throughout the entire...

    Inishmore Restaurants

    I must say the same thing about the garlic bread, again alot of cheese and not much garlic stuck on some bagette. I must say however that there was alot of it. There was a kind of burnt tomato in the middle with some tastless bacon (I think it was a tomato anyway....) Because of the rest of the menu that I was not very keen on and what they did...

  • O'Briens Pub

    Ballyvaughan Restaurants

    Both of these places reside in the centre of the village and they both serve excellent food. O'Briens serve basic, wholesome pub food (i.e almost everything with chips) where as the Hyland Hotel tends to serve food that is more up-market. O'Briens: - phone 065 7077003, opposite Spar shop. This pub also offers bed & breakfast accomodation Best...

  • Granny's Kitchen

    Cashel Restaurants

    This is one of the only places near the castle where you can get a meal. There are a few other little shops for postcards etc. A good idea would be to take a picnic basket or some sandwiches if you;re planning to be there over lunch.

  • Monk's Pub in Ballyvaughan

    4 out of 5 stars

    County Clare Restaurants

    I suppose no trip to the Burren is complete without a stop in a Monk's Pub in Ballyvaughan. As you you might expect from a pub located on a coastal road, Monk's is known for it's seafood. It is pleasant inside and certainly family friendly. There is also a beer garden for those nice days. Of course it is a busy place, due to it's prime location. If...

  • Durkan's Weir House

    County Mayo Restaurants

    Unfortunately the place will be sold apparently (I guess 'For sale' signs outside aren't a good sign ;-) so you better hurry to get there!! Great pub food there. Had a lovely rasher sandwich. Excellent value!

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Ireland Restaurants

    The Arlington Hotel (O Connell Bridge) has a large restaurant and bar in Temple Bar. They advertise great Irish Food, etc. I joined another VT member for lunch here and was a bit disappointed. My beer, an O’Hara’s Stout, was the star of the show. Actually several were. Followed up with some Jameson Whiskey’s. OK, no it was not a liquid lunch. We...

  • Saddlers Pub

    County Kerry Restaurants

    We stayed the night in Killarney, and after a long afternoon of driving and car trouble, when we arrived at our B&B, we wanted to find somewhere nearby to eat. The Saddlers Pub was across the road from our B&B, and was part of the Holiday Inn. It was a large bar with a decent sized food menu and reasonable prices. We had burgers and lasagne and...

The food was lovely, not too expensive and there is seating in the food hall. ETA - 2015 On my most...

    Yes, Luigi Malone was a real person and there is a large photo of him inside on the family wall. This beautiful restaurant surprises you the second you enter through the mahogany French doors. Right in front of you is the original station clock from Kings Cross Station (London) which was once at the entrance of the Great Eastern Line. One of the...

    Galway Restaurants

    My 18 yr old son and I ate at McDonagh's while in Galway as it had been recommended to us. When talking to the locals, several people had asked if we had been there yet. The line up was long and both sides of the restaurant and patio were packed solid. A testament to the good food. We were more determined to wait in line and get ours. Service was...

  • Lord Brandon Cottage

    Killarney Restaurants

    The Lord Brandon Cottage in Black Valley isn't really a restaurant, it's more along the lines of a dozen wooden bench tables under a roof. The fare is typically snacks, refreshments, and during the day the owners, who live in the attached house, will cook something up in the kitchen as well. I didn't get there until after 6, and they were already...

  • Dolen's

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Limerick Restaurants

    Dolan's is where you can find that quintessential Irish pub that you came to Ireland for that is not too touristy. They often have musicians jamming in the front but they also have a room in the back for concerts. The musicians up front play a lot of Irish songs. The musicians in back vary in gene and tickets are reasonably priced but vary by...

  • Emilianos

    Waterford Restaurants

    Emilianos is the brainchild of a local Irish/Italian girl, Lavina, and her husband Emiliano. They met several years ago when they were both working on one of the luxury cruise lines, fell in love, and came back to Waterford giving us this delightful eatery. The food is genuinely Italian. Waterford now hosts a number of Italian eateries, and they...

  • Man Friday's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Kinsale Restaurants

    In recent years Kinsale has seen an influx of wonderful modern gourmet restaurants clamouring to outshine the old favourites. Man Friday's is one of those golden oldies and, in my opinion, it is superbly holding its own. One could be forgiven for missing the entrance, tucked away as it is on a street corner of what appear to be secluded private...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Dingle Restaurants

    Great atmoshphere, nice fire going, comfortable seating, and great food. I had my first "black pudding" here. A nice place to treat yourself after a long day of touring. Even though it was February and off season, there was a small wait. If you can a reservation it might be a good idea. Seafood.

  • Maud's

    Howth Restaurants

    Maud’s is a café on Harbour Road, just in front of the harbour. They serve a seafood soup with local catch that seems to be very popular. I ordered a combo, which is the seafood soup (it was good and filling) plus half a smoked salmon sandwich (with some salad) for 9.95 Euro. The large orange juice was 2.25 Euro and served in a tetra pack. The ice...

  • The Marble City Bar

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Kilkenny Restaurants

    Although this place was recommended, it turned out to be awful. Even though we visited during what shoud be one of Kilkennys busiest periods (The Cats Laughs Festival), the venue lacked any sort of atmosphere. We should have realised when we arrived, to over hear other patrons complaining that we might be in for a rough ride. After waiting for what...

    Whenever I'm in Doolin, I vist the Lazy Lobster. The food is very well, especially the fresh lobsters and the soups. Its not only a seafood restaurant, you can have really nice fillets of irish beef which are as good as the seafood is. The restaurant is small (like 10 tables or so) and the service crew is very friendly and helps you out when you...

    Dublin Restaurants

    Whilst doing some tip grouping in early March 2015 I came upon the following piece of information which may be of benefit to the traveller. Bewley's coffee shop on Grafton Street has been closed and will remain so until Autumn 2015 when it will re-open on the ground floor only with the upstairs seating area shut. Whilst I am more of a pub man than...

  • Currans

    4 out of 5 stars

    Cork Restaurants

    Not the cheapest option in Cork, but the food is good quality. Look out for set menus which get you a starter and a dessert on top for just a little more than the price of a main dish. Kitchen is international mainstream with a good variety of dishes. The only drawback is that the choice of beers was pretty weak – this is more a wine place. Get on...

As you board the ferry a man with a clipboard checks your name against his register to ensure that you're either a...

    Kinsale Restaurants

    This restaurant was certainly popular when we visited on a Saturday night in September. We only had to wait for half an hour to get a table in the bar and we liked the busy yet relaxed atmosphere. The food was nice but quite pricey for a pub- around 16 Euros for a main course. Personally I didn't think it was special enough for the price. The...

    Doolin Restaurants

    Pub consists of a room with the main bar and another dining room with a smaller bar . Pub can get very crowded when the music starts. This was the only time I had Corned Beef and Cabbage during my entire trip to Ireland. It was good but not as good as my wife makes.

Not the greatest meal ever, but quite cheap. Service was fast, so we could get...

    Good old cool Bad Ass transformed in the autumn 2011. The refurbishment gone wrong and originality lost. With that unfortunately the food didn't improve. Used to be a customer in the past and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. However after trying the new-old I will not come back. Any other pub will give you better food and better atmosphere. There...

All through the entire evening the service was spectacular and the food was absolutely amazing, and we only had the early bird menus, can't imagine how the expensive ones are. This restaurant has to be tried!
