Nice atmosphere in there and really busy. We got carvery lunch and it was delicious. Just slow about our drinks needed to remind them twice. Decent price for the meal and generous portion. Worth to stop by definitely.

Walls of the Priory has been a stop for us for many years. With the advent of the new motorway, one needs to take the "old road" to get there but it's worth the detour. Ample parking but more importantly, good food at good prices. We were on the way from Killcullen this visit, but we often drop in after... More

Large portion for the starter very tasty. For some reason when the fish arrived it looked a little like something you would buy in a packet in the supermarket because... More

As an older couple, we went to the Priory of a Saturday night for a quiet drink. Immediately fell in love with the place - it was really inviting in every respect. A great attention to detail has gone into creating the charming ambiance and it was also immaculately clean - no shabby-chic excuses for grubbiness here - glistening throughout.... More

Situated in the country side the priory is old and authentic traditional food served there and with a great atmosphere you can have a pint and eat at the same time

Delicious which allowed us to feel right at home. Big bowl of mashed potatoes.... best comfort food ever and a bowl overflowing with fresh garden vegetables. Yummy! Everyone was so friendly.... those working and those dining. Appeared to be mostly locals which always adds to the delight of a place. Several families with small children enjoyed their meals as the... More

The Priory Inn has an old world effect but is sadly lacking in character. I had lunch here with a family member recently. The service was quite slow. The food was standard.
