Starter was so so . But the main course and the selection of desserts made up for it . They were amazing . It's hard to get a restaurant that makes all their own desserts any more and Thai restaurant did not fail us . Will return if ever near again

The food is indisputably great : I've never been disappointed : it can't hold loads of people in the restaurant - so it feels personal: If I had the power - I would buy smaller tables ( they've just got softer lovely chairs ) so one can chat better with one's companion (!) and I'd kill off the echo with...

The Cottage is a firm favourite for a dinner date. We normally eat here about once a month and the food and service is outstanding. A real gem.

The kitchen can be seen from the Resturant and appeared spotless and very well run. It appears quite expensive, but... More

Visited The Cottage in November - had the tasting menu. What a treat. The food, the service was as fabulous - as good as any Michelin start restaurant I have been to. Will return again the next time I am in Ireland.

Given the accolades The Cottage had received and having been disappointed the first time round, I decided to give it another go for Sunday lunch. There are three small dining areas. The table and chairs are basic. The lighting and general design is poor. A signal of the lack of attention to detail was the flimsy paper napkins. The service... More

Talk about fabulous food! This is definitely worth a visit though it gets very busy so booking is essential. The staff were lovely and we had a very enjoyable evening.

Kept meaning to write this review but you know how hectic things can get...This used to be the old Lebanese restaurant in Jamestown which we used to frequent quite regularly any time we were down in Carrick on Shannon.
