The Old Convent is one of the best restaurents you are likely to eat at. The food, the ambiance, and the staff are all from the top drawer. You as a guest are made feel at home while their selection of wines help also. There are no downsides to the Old Convent, what you pay for you get in Quality.... More

The eight course tasting menu is served in the old chapel room which still has original features including stained glass windows. The restaurant is very comfortable with crisp linen table cloths and napkins. It's a nice romantic location and the tables are not too close together. The menu is presented to the diners before they enter the restaurant and it... More

This restaurant is fantastic. It was a place that granny had always wanted to go to and we chose it for a special family dinner. We had been advised that the hotel was families only but that the restaurant could take children who would enjoy the 8 course taster menu. The hotel was lovely, relaxed but very beautiful. The people... More

We'd been trying to go here for years but it just never happened so finally got to go before Xmas. My wife and I have diary intolerance's and only notified the Convent a few days before. However... When we arrived they had a brilliant, wonderful, dairy free menu prepared. My wife is also gluten free & they had that covered... More

This was our second time in the Old Convent. We mentioned it was our wedding anniversary (not a big one) and lo and behold an hour later it was part of our menu! This is one of the many small touches that makes the Old Convent so special. Christine makes you feel so welcome, the surroundings are tasteful and cosy,... More

We arrived to the Old Convent a little stressed after a horrible, long, slow drive and were both really looking forward to a relaxing drink, and a roaring fire. We were disappointed to find the Old Convent only has a wine licence, and no fire. It was the first of the really cold nights and we found our room, and... More

7 Courses, flavoures taste and textures heaven. I cant describe how good it was. Anything that needed to be adapted for one Coeliac was perfect and no questions asked. Former Convent , grounds and garden exquisite. Would go more often if i could afford it! (65 euro). Well worth every cent.

We ate here recently with some family members and could not recommend the Old Convent highly enough. The tasting menu is absolutely delightful - beautifully balanced, flavorful and with ingredients locally sourced as far as is possible. The wine list is very good. The dining room is the former convent chapel with stained glass windows and a simple decor, full... More

Our hosts have been to the Old Convent many times and my husband and I were thrilled to have been invited to join them on the occasion of their wedding reception. We were too late to get a room in the house itself so travelled by taxi from nearby Cahir. As soon as we saw the place we knew it... More

It's my second time eating at this wonderful venue in the quiet rural Tipperary countryside. I was delighted to see the standard of food is still as high as my first visit. The very well priced (€65) seven course tasting menu was delicious from start to finish , washed down by some excellent and reasonable priced wines. Service was very... More
