Our meal was good. My husband had a cheese burger and I had a Irish pork special. It was a charming atmosphere and the large bar is actually very pretty. It was busy with a lot of locals watching a rugby game. It was an entertaining place to hang out. We were staying at the attached Castle Hotel.

I eat here on a regular basis. The food never disappoints. The staff are always so friendly & welcoming & the place itself is great. A change of menu is severely needed. Even though the menu has a lot on it & the food is great it is now becoming quite boring. Subtle changes have been made now & again... More

Stopped here for dinner after a day out with the kids in Killarney. We were delighted to see all the quality artisan ingredients on the menu and the meals were equally impressive. My husband had the pork belly and I had the Wild Atlantic seafood plate . Both really delicious. The kids loved the hake goujons and calamari on my... More

Wasn't too gone on the chicken wings as a starter, would have preferred if they had been separated. The main courses of halloumi burger and chicken satay were delicious and a good portion size. The desserts were delicious also, malteaser cheesecake and banoffi. Very busy bar too with lots of people eating there, would definitely eat here again.

The food here is excellent quality along with excellent customer service and very reasonable pricing. We have been here on multiple occasions and have never left without being very satisfied. They happily cater to any dietary requirements and have excellent options on the menu as it is. Will be coming back again soon!
