Paul and Maire Flynn opened the Tannery in 1997 in a disused leather warehouse and since then Paul and his team have been cooking in his own eclectic style. Over the years, this has evolved into rustic and earthy cooking. Paul's cooking is always seasonal and can be inspired by whats growing in the garden, travel and even what he is reading.

Tapas downstairs in the tannery is a real treat. The beef cheek, the rissoles, the market platters - all top notch. The salted caramel cocktail is to die for. I would happily eat there once a month. The vibe is very pleasant and casual so all round winner.

Four us had dinner here last night .We opted for the 3 course set menu. This was excellent 3 choices on each course. Beautiful presentation, good portions and great taste. We had a "super server" Callum. He was attentive and diligent without being intrusive.We felt 30€ pp for this menu was good value and we will definitely be back.

We went on a dinner, bed & breakfast deal - so worth it. Lived up to expectation, which were very high. Great service from moment we arrived. Had a lovely waitress, who was so pleasant and chatted we with on the location. Starters - red onion tarte tatin with goat's cheese, really good, flavours mixed well. Salmon - lovely, simple but good. Mains- had monkfish which was in a sauce that was like a red curry, different and very tasty different and enjoyed. Desert - Blackcurrent souffle excellent. Rooms are lovely, breakfast is in room, just add water for coffee plungers and muffins left on door. Worth a trip.

I'm going to give a rarely allowed 5 stars for this restaurant. Everything was impeccable, from the service by our friendly Polish waiter, to the the food and the ambience. The food was faultless with a genuine flair for unusual combinations that really worked. The pulled pork starter was excellent and came with a variety of pickled vegetables and other tasty accompaniments. My husband had the rib-eye and I had the lobster thermidor special, which surprisingly didn't cost the same as a small mortgage. Everything was superb. If I had to find one tiny fault, it would be the marie rose aioli that came with the chips. It didn't work for either of us, but then again, I've always thought marie rose to be a hiddeous invention of the 80's which should have been left there! Really though, nothing could have dampened our enthusiasm for such a memorable meal. I would go back in a flash!

Had the pleasure of dining in your restaurant last Sunday for lunch. From the minute we walked in the door we were made feel very welcome. We were quickly shown to a well laid out circular table. Suited both my wife, children and I perfectly. Our staters were amazing as were our main courses. All the desserts served had the WOW factor and left us longing for more. Tea's and coffees were served and we relaxed after a splendid meal. We have dined here on many occasions and also stayed in the townhouses. We would like to think that we are FOODIES and it is so unusual that we find such a fine restaurant that has impeccable service, unique food and great atmosphere. Looking forward to returning again very soon. Well worth a trip down from Cork.

We we given the dining room as there was a large goup of us, I cannot fault the service for food,the wine could have been kept flowing a little better. THe food was a shortened menu to accomodate our numbers. The lamb carpaccio while very tasty the overwhelming taste was parmesean, even the beans and broccoli got lost in the taste of the deepfried garlic, the lamb i think was lovely, pity i couldn't taste it. The crab brulee has been going on here for a very long time indeed, and if it's not broke why fix it? well, it's unfortunate that all I remined of was overcooked ommlette with crab, it was lovely but wasn't soft enough. The steak was delicious a great piece of meat, the mushrooms were excellent but the wilted greens were very domneering. The saving grace came in the form of the humble spud, theses were the most delicious potatoes i had/have/will have ever tasted, the butter the spuds, oh Lord! The monkfish was colossal, the romesco sauce was delicious.I didn't taste the duck but it sounded good. The deserts were good, the chocolate tart was phenomenal, the honeycomb just bringing out the saltiness, fab. The cherry and white choc sundae was shrap and sweet and tangy served with a warm madeline with orange overtones. The chees palte looked great. Overall the food got better with course and rising to a crescendo! The wine, not my choice was not hectic, semillion/sauv blanc was harsh and the red wasn't to my taste either, that's not to say they wouldn't suit someone! A good experience but i'm not in rush to get back.

It's a disused leather warehouse (hence the name) and has been beautifully converted to create a contemporary and spacious restaurant. The downstairs area is where you find the bar and where there's a bar, there's cocktails served at little round tables and very comfortable seats. They were so good and so potent, that I've forgotten what they were called! After a browse through the short but perfectly formed menu, we settled on who was ordering what for dinner. As I let The Hubs have first choice at lunch, I put my size fives down and demanded the pick of the menu. My starter choice was pre-determined : it had to be the crab creme brulee with pickled cucumber and melba toast. The Hubs made a face at this which I took as a good omen i.e. I wouldn't have to share it. He opted for the caramelised red onion tart with soft Dromana cheese. Mains kept both of us happy - aged ribeye steak with a wild mushroom duxelle and creamed onions, and smoked Barbary duck with green beans, peaches, bacon & girolles. In the interest of research, I also ordered the french fries with smoked paprika aioli (more about this later...). We were led upstairs to the very bright and airy dining room where I had a perfect view of all the activity. The restaurant was absolutely packed, with early bird diners leaving and being quickly replaced by the 8pm mob. Soon the crab and the tart showed up and we stopped talking. Until somebody opposite piped up "do you want to try some of mine". This isn't him being all nice and sharing. It just means that he wants some of mine. I happily handed over some of my crab, complete with pickled cucumber on a shard of melba toast and happily accepted some of his red onion tart which reminded me of my favourite Portugese tart, Pasteis do Nata. The Dromana cheese was soft and delicate which worked really well with the crispy pastry and melting red onion filling. My crab creme brulee was gorgeous. I actually would have been happy to eat a main course-sized portion of it

I had what I would consider an exceptional, faultless meal here. Despite the menu not being heavy on my favourite main ingredients, what came out of the kitchen was exactly what you want from a restaurant, inventive food that you would not think of cooking yourself or not have the skill to pull it off. Lovely room, exceptional service. Well priced for the standard on offer.

I attended the tannery restaurant and all I can say is I don't know how they are so successful maybe it's the building or is it the pretentious attitude from some of the staff ,not all, the waiting staff are great and the waitress that serviced us was a delight . I would consider myself to be a major foody having travelled all over in search of irelands finest cuisine delights. In my job I advice people on where to go and what to do in ireland this includes recommending good food ! I Wouldn't be sending anyone in this direction , although the menu sounded exciting the food didn't follow suit it was boring bland and missing some very key important ingredients ! I think maybe people really need to educate themselves on what good food should taste like because this really was just passable it lacked creativity not imagination as the cod crochets I ordered was literally bubbling on the plate ! I felt like this inventive dish was linked to one of rick stands victorian feasts except it was tasteless I sent it back ! I ordered something else and was shocked at what I encountered on the plate a baby chicken which was pink ! I was to embarrassed to send another dish back but the waitress who was fantastic informed me that a baby chicken is supposed to be pink because the bones are smaller , I was taught let the juices run clear and your in the clear well the juices weren't clear . So than I ate the potato and veg and I done something I rarely do I reached for the salt and pepper , I think I've summed it up with that !

This is a restaurant that I have been long meaning to go to (we're talking years here) due to the rave reviews from friends etc. So it was with great anticipation that I and two friends finally clicked our heels through the doors of this famed eatery. Well well...on spotting us through the open kitchen, a chef? loudly clapped (yes clapped) his hands loudly and in response a young waitress came promptly running down the stairs. Clearly they have a little 'actions speak better than words' system going on.This polite waitress took our coats and then took us up to a table, the decor is very chic in a 'new money' sort of way.We were given the menus and soon decided on the 'easy evening' menu at 28.50, my companions had a half litre of white at 16.00. The first course arrived in reasonable time and tasted wonderful albeit a small portion.However does chicken liver parfait require serving in a small kilner type clip jar? In my opinion no, this is an unnecessary distraction and plain inconvenient. We then waited a whopping 30 minutes for our main courses. My choice of lasagne was a deconstructed lukewarm offering, plenty of red onion and very economical on the knocknalara cheese, what a disappointment as this is what enticed me to order it in the first place. On being asked by the manager? if we were happy I informed her of the delay and told her we were now running late for a function.Granted she did step things up and we were provided with dessert menus immediatley. Our desserts which were delicious and one coffee where duly scoffed down due to our now time constraint.On paying the manager informed us she wasn't charging for the coffee. A free coffeel not in any way sway my opinion of this very average restaurant.

This restaurant has been on our list of places to visit for quite some time, so we eventually made it on Sunday last August 22nd at approx 6pm. We were met by a very pleasant front of house receptionist who showed us to our table and gave us some menus, as we were driving we did not partake of any wine. I opted for the Easy Evening Menu @ €28.50, my partner opted for the Aged rib eye steak from the a La Carte menu also @ €28.50. Our waiter brought some bread and water and took our order. I started with The Tannery tasting plate which comprised of duck pate, chicken liver pate, potted rabbit, and a cold soup. We shared the pate’s, it was ok but not spectacular. Then to the mains I had Pan fried trout, which came with a bed of peas and French beans, with a whirl of creamed potatoes. My partners Aged rib eye steak looked rather mean and small with two vegetable croquettes, four onion rings, and a bowl of creamed potatoes, we enquired from our waiter as to the contents of the bowl and were informed it was potatoes creamed with butter and cream and drizzled with oil. This meal left a lot to be desired, it was warm at best, not even hot. I ordered Chocolate truffle cake with cherries for desert, not bad but very heavy. I requested the bill which came to €57.00. During the course of the meal we observed waiters on three occasions making errors with orders, bringing wrong orders to tables. As we were the second couple in the restaurant, I just wonder was there an error made with our order, for The Tannery, with such a reputation we were so disappointed. It certainly would not encourage us to make a return visit. I have had to wait a few days to write this review, I was so angry at the standard of the food we go, and to charge €28.50 for that miserable offering of Aged rib eye steak. Shame on you.
