Dinner here is a great treat, in particular in the summer, when you can admire the sun set and watch the colours change as the day flees away. There is a good selection on the menu, but what drives on the plate exceeds the promise of the menu. Wonderfully food, served with fantastic, but relaxed service. You could not ask... More

The chef here has a handle on new ideas without taking you to places you don't want to go. Execution is excellent and service is fine dining standards. Some of the best meals in Ireland had here at the end of a long active day.

I have mixed feelings about the restaurant. We have the four course dinner for €65. I had a tuna in sesame seeds.... delicious. This was followed with cod and cous cous. Not great, lacked flavor and had a delicious lemon dessert. Tasty meal....ok

The staff was extremely attentive and helpful as well as professional. The setting is beautiful- try to get a table near the windows for a great view of the river and grounds of the hotel. The food was the best meal we had in our entire trip to Ireland- everything we tried was delicious.

Fresh, fresh, fresh! That's the word for the cuisine. We all ate fish that had been caught that day the first night and the second night I ate lamb upon the recommendation of the chef. Our meal was superb and beautifully presented. The best meal that I ate in the whole of Ireland and even surpassed a Michelen star-rated restaurant... More
