This year (yesterday a year to the date) we called in on our way to the Slieve Russell again. Patricia welcomed us and remembered us from last year, so we... More

Brought my parents to St Kyran's a few weeks ago for their anniversary. Food was excellent. Had fresh mussels for starter and pork dish for mains which were both top class. The dessert was a chocolate brownie but it was far better than just a brownie, it was melt in the mouth. Wine was excellent. Staff are very good and... More

The food here was absolutely terrible. It was overpriced and served cold. The selection is extremely poor and if you want potatoes you have to pay an extra €3.50. We came here for my sisters graduation meal but left feeling hungry and bitterly disappointed. Such a waste of money. Would not go back.

What is so astonishing about this restaurant is that there are so many good reviews about it. I have never had a more awful dining experience. Firstly - and this is by no means the worst part - the feel of the dining area is that you are in the dining room of a rather nice old people's home. There... More

The last time I ventured to Virginia was probably 20 years ago, whilst playing rugby for Donaghadee. On that occasion our culinary delight was to sample pickled eggs on the return journey on the bus. It wasn't for the faint hearted. But back to business. Following an exciting Northern Irish heat of Great British Menu, which saw Eddie Attwell seemingly... More

If you are after burger and chips you will be disappointed however if you are seeking homemade quality food with a few quirks and strange combinations you will be amazed the portion sizes are perfect and the 4 courses are all home made cooked and prepared in house which is a rarity in modern Irish restaurants .The views of the...

The food here was beautiful, we really enjoyed it. Service was great, staff were lovely, looking forward to go back. Amazing views of the surrounding scenery (get a window seat). A little pricey but worth it.
