Visited for food but left after grumpy, scruffy owner put us off the idea. Avoid. Much better places in neighbouring towns.

Certainly an authentic pub, but light on the patrons while we were there about 8pm. The food was tolerable pub grub. If you are looking for high end food, try somewhere else. If you like local aura, this place will work for you.

Malone's is certainly not five-star dining. But the food is decent and reflective of the local palate, and the service is acceptable. Probably a good place to visit if you're looking an authentic local experience. The roast duck was decent but not outstanding. The roasted chicken was somewhat better than the duck. The bread wasn't great.

I have been stopping in to see John at Malone's Galtee in for many years with my guided tour groups. Always good service, great lunch, delicious pints! My clients love the staff and the atmosphere. Any stop in Cahir would be incomplete with a visit to this venerable old pub.

Take 10-15 mins to pass through to the next town if you enjoy nice food and a friendly service. Food burnt, reheated and no taste what so ever. People expect good food now a days when you are expected to pay €10.95 per main course. Was so hungry we quickly ate and drove to clonmel for coffee and cake. Need... More
