This a nice restaurant in the lovely town of Stradbally. My wife and I had Sunday lunch here recently. Service was very good and pleasant. I chose the Roast Beef while my wife had Turkey and Ham. Unfortunately while both tasted fine they were a little on the tough side and required a good chew on my part anyway. Dessert... More

Amazing service and great staff. Left my phone in Stradbally after Electric Picnic and they were kind of enough to post it to me. The food came swiftly and was delicious. Special shout out to Ann Marie for posting me my phone and doing her best to make the meal as enjoyable as possible. Highly Recommend.

After all the good reviews I was little disappointed with my visit. I visited Stradbally Fayre twice (during Electric Picnic) to give a fair review but I was unhappy twice with the food. On the two occasions i had asked for certain things to be omitted from my food but twice my order wasnt correct. The staff may have been... More

My partner and I stopped here one afternoon whilst out for a drive. Was pleasantly surprised at the lovely selection of home baking on offer to us. It was recommended to us by my sister as she stops there regularly when out cycling with her club. A definite winner. What was due to be a quick pit stop and refuel... More

Myself and my daughter stopped in here during our recent holiday in Ireland, and we were very glad that we did! We were very impressed both with the food and with the friendly and helpful service. The proper fresh cut chips were a real treat! I have already recommended Stradbally Fayre to other members of my family travelling in Ireland... More

We stopped off on a road trip as the place looked nice. The first thing when we went in was noticing the nice wooden seating... But then noticing the multiple uncleared tables which wasn't as pleasant. It took a good while for them all to be cleared which I just never like in a restaurant. The menus... Please get them...

Have been here a couple of times with a large family group and small children and seems like this place suits any needs. Would go out of my way... More
