My bf and had a great time at Andy's. Monaghan Chicken was the best meal we had on our entire visit to Ireland. Service was outstanding. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. We will be back on our next visit for sure!

We booked the private room at the back of the restaurant for about 20 of my family when we were over visiting at Christmas. Staff were very friendly and professional despite it being very busy. Food was excellent and everyone had a good time. We will book again when we are back on holidays.

It's the only restaurant I've visited that has many vegetarian options instead of just pasta, so it just goes to show that they can cater for everyone. The service is unbeatable, and it's never a disappointment. Best restaurant in Ireland!

If you arrive into a restaurant to be told you might have a 30 minute wait then you know someone somewhere here is doing something right. That gives me ample time to try out the latest gin on the shelf and relax. I don't want fast food, I'm out for several hours. That's what dining out is all about. And... More

Visit regularly with friends for a gin & tonic (or 2) - not just any ordinary G&T, the most varied selection and well presented drinks to be enjoyed. Actually, I measure other establishments and service based on the quality set by Andy's. Monaghan is lucky to have such a hostelry. Highly recommended with confidence.

We ate here a while back but were not impressed at all, the service was extremely slow and the food was awful by the time we eventually got it after a 35 minute wait to even be served. the steaks were tough and i'm sorry for the bragging this place puts out about its chef etc it gets a thumbs...

We were staying at the Hillgrove Hotel with our two boys aged 11 and 9 but had been underwhelmed by the lunchtime food served there vs price. Decided to venture into the town for dinner around 8pm and following Tripadvisor reviews and recommendation from the hotel we were delighted to find Andys (one of the few restaurant/pubs open on New...
