My family comes from outside Ballyhaunis and we shop in this town regularly when I visit from the States. The Oak Cafe and Bar is our midday meal stop and we really like this place. Great, friendly, sparkling clean spot with outstanding food and great value. My mother and her sister enjoyed several meals here, including the traditional soup and brown bread as well as the tasty lamb stew and mash. I enjoyed a beef burger as well as soup and sandwiches. Ballyhaunis is an ideal stop over for those traveling to or from Knock. There is ample parking across the street behind the Gem Shop. All the locals enjoy lunch here. Highly recommend if you want good, local Irish food at good prices.

Dropped in here for lunch recently with friend's. Lunch was delicious and I loved the decor. It's a credit to the proprietor. Well done ladies.

An unexpectedly pleasant lunch before a match at Ballyhaunis included a tasty cheesey blt, lovely crisp potato wedges and deliciius homemade mushroom soup. Due to a call one of our coffees had cooled down and was immediately replaced free of charge. We were invited to enter tge local raffle being drawn that day and won a bottle of Baileys! Worth a visit, lovely place and people.

Called in to the Oak bar for lunch with friends this week....they were running late so lunch was a bit delayed......but everything was still available when they arrived.....my husband loves his full Irish breakfast so his choice was obvious, it came large, freshly cooked and he said it was delicious...my baked potato with tuna and selectors was served with a fresh green salad and was perfect. The lovely surprise was my friend Denise was able to chose the big green detox smoothie.... as far as I know this is the only place in Ballyhaunis that offers veg or fruit smoothie......I had never considered this option for lunch but when it came she said it was wonderful....so I had a taste and yes it truly
was..... freshly juiced and very moreish......I'm not a smoothie sort of girl but this was a delight to the taste buds.....I will certainly be calling in here again to have a whole one to my self and also to try the fruit option... it's fantastic to see a small lunch bar offering an alternative if juiced veg is your thing.... the staff were as friendly and helpful as ever.... the ambiance is very pleasant .....t's a gem of a lunch bar...do try it

We stopped here for breakfast on our way to westport. The food was gorgeous and staff were very friendly. The cafe is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Would recommend
