I have received multiple recommendations from friends - and they were more than right. Very cozy atmosphere and personal attention of the staff. You can find taste of your choice and enjoy.

Had a family Christening in The Wild Geese in November 2016. Cannot compliment Julie enough in organising a menu that suited all tastes as our group included coeliacs and vegetarians. The food was superb and the service was excellent and there was nothing but praise from all.

I had dinner here with 3 friends. The restaurant is really quaint from the outside but a rad shabby on the inside. The food was ok but the portions were really big and the starters were very oily. The service however was excellent and staff were very plesant.

Drove 40 minutes to get to this restaurant and was very disappointed overall. Lovely from the outside but somewhat unprofessional inside although the food was ok. I gave food 4/10 my partner gave it 6/10 (based on a nicely cooked steak). Inside - first impressions were poor generally and while waiting in the little sitting room it was hard not... More

This was my second time to visit this top class restaurant, I have recommended it to many others and they have not been disappointed. My one complaint is the tatty ripped napkin that was on my plate. It was clean but looked as if it had been chewed by a dog.i was given a replacement straight away, however if I... More

Had thought we had booked the Early-Bird meal, but upon arrival at 7.30 pm. was told we were 30 minutes late, so had to stay with the Dinner Menu. 2 courses for €30.00 or 3 courses for €37.00. We decided to opt for the 2-course meal, with a starter and dessert being shared. This was a really excellent idea, as... More

This lovely little restaurant in the heart of Adare village is like steeping back in time to have your dinner. The tiny little house is frozen in time. Food was of and very high standard and we enjoyed every course. Well worth a visit.

We visited The Wild Geese last Friday evening for our work Xmas Party Dinner. There is only one word to describe this place - WOW! From start to finish our experience was flawless... There were 24 in our group and we had the ground floor restaurant to ourselves. The atmosphere is warm, cosy & inviting. Julie the manager welcomed us... More
