Had truly amazing meal in cosy comfy atmosphere of The Hole in the Wall, complete with finest Christmas decs. I defy you to find a better steak in the country and cooked to perfection to boot. The bar manager will find a seat even where the situation looks impossible. He will pair the most gorgeous wine with the meal and deliver it to the table in the finest glasses with the aplomb it deserves. To top it all, a member of staff entertains all the customers with his amazing joie de vivre! The ability to choose wine from the off licence without paying corkage means you can choose a gorgeous wine at a more than reasonable price. I really can't recommend this place enough. You should definitely go! At this time of the year, the gorgeous decorations really add to the atmosphere. Finally, it is incredibly reasonably priced. Roll on next Friday!

The Ballymore Inn
Main Street, Ballymore Eustace, Kildare

I visited Ballymore this afternoon, having not been there for 18 months or so. I couldnt believe how quiet it was, given the fact that we had always struggled to get a table here without a reservation some two years ago. There was only ourselves and one other table. Once I read the menu, I understood why. A main course is €22.50 with supplements of €6.50 for steaks and similar. They offer two courses for €28. In the context of the value that is being offered around Dublin 2 these days, this is exorbitant. I ordered the beef stir fry, which was fantastic - really tasty and so enjoyable, That said, most Chinese restaurants would deliver similar for less than €15. €22.50 is just too much for a casual main course on a Sunday evening in what is the annex of a pub in the middle of nowhere. While I really enjoyed it, I wont be back in a hurry. As we left there were a maximum of five tables busy - I am sure that Ballymore could recreate the atmosphere of the past by cutting their prices by a couple of euro. Its happened across the city - perhaps its taking its time travelling out to the plains of Kildare!
