Greene's Cafe & Bistro restaurant
63 William St, Limerick City, Limerick
Reviewed 06th October 2012 ( visited 05th October 2012 )After visiting here last week for coffee and scones I had to come back and try lunch during a busy day shopping, I availed of the lunch special which was ham, cheese, tomato, and relish panini and chips for 5.50. It was delicious and great value. This was followed by a capachino for 2.65 which came with a little chocolate milka well presented and with a smile. Staff very helpful, great athmosphere, and a lovely lunch time buzz about the place. Will be making this a regular haunt.
Creamery Bar & Restaurant The
Old Bunratty Road, Bunratty, Clare
Reviewed 03rd October 2012 ( visited 02nd October 2012 )Had lunch here on a lovely sunny day sitting outside in their newly covered area, nice athmosphere with many tourists still around. Service was good, place spotless and the creamery burger was excellent, I had the bacon and cheese option and it was hot, tasty and plentiful. My friend had the bacon and cabbage which they said was lovely and hit the spot, Isnt that just what one wants. This is not the first time I dined here and it wont be the last. Lots of parking right outside the door too.
49 Dominick st, Galway City, Galway
Went here with a friend to savour some Creole cuisine, We were certainly not disappointed, The atmosphere and decor were only matched by the warm welcome of the staff and excellent service we got even at a busy time. We had sizzling shrimps for starter, the highly recommended baby back ribs and chicken for mains, Mississippi mud pie for desert and even sampled the Creole coffees with Southern comfort. All amazing, We used our menu pages points to get our complimentary glasses of wine. A truly unforgettable meal and will definitely be back soon.
3 Georges Quay, Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick
I went here with a friend to watch a game & have Sunday lunch. When we arrived we saw Roast Beef, yorkshire puddings & wine jus etc, We said great, had a glass of wine and ordered. First she said after a 5 min wait no yorkshire puddings. We said ah pity but give us extra vedg insgead, Another 5 mins - sorry no roast beef either. So we settled for lukewarm chickenon the bone, mash and carrots. So disappointed with the small portions we had on two occasions to ask for extra. Never again. I agree with the previous commenter 100%.
Aroi Asian Street Food
1 O'Connell St, Limerick City, Limerick City, Limerick
A different concept to eating out, amazing place, Very busy so had to wait for table. Fantastic food, just delicious and so tasty, great buzz, good prices. So handy right in the centre of town so will be back real soon again, Highly recommended.
The White House, 2 Glentworth St, Limerick City, Limerick
Went here for Little Christmas for the first time. Was very impressed with the friendly staff, great variety of food and drinks and excellent prices. We both had the best chicken satay ever for starters, we had cod fillets in thai coconut sauce and butterfly prawns for mains and baileys ice cream for desert, The house wine was one of my own favourites at 13.50 excellent value. It was a bit quiet on a tuesday but will be back in the very near future, A hidden treasure. Please try it you dont know what you are missing.
Courtyard Bistro at The Castlecourt Hotel
The Castlecourt Hotel, Westport, Mayo
Visited here after a 30 year lapse. Took a scenic Sunday drive and had Sunday lunch in bar while watching sport. Soup, mains, coffee all excellent. Staff very friendly, great size portions and good value. Nice atmosphere and great location, Will not wait as long again.
The Thatch Bar & Restaurant
Military Road, Crinkill, Birr, Offaly
Taken here by somebody that had been several times before and highly recommended it, I was not disappointed. We had 4 course meal and each one was delightful. I had the duck and it was just as I wanted - the perfect meal. Staff friendly and helpful. Lovely setting. Will return for sure.
The Boardwalk Bar and Grill
Lapps Quay, Cork City, Cork
First visit here on way to concert at Marquee. Excellent location, sitting outside on a beautiful summers evening, Service was excellent, food out of this world and ambiance amazing. Could have lingered for much longer and will return for sure when I have no prior committments. Wonderful place and highly recommended.
Imperial Hotel (Cork)
Clonakilty, Clonakilty, Cork
Had lunch with a friend here after a trip to the English Market. We had the carvery lunch, both having roast rib of beef which was delicious. Staff were very friendly and helpful and a great athmosphere and city buzz about the place. Highly recommended and will definitely return on my next trip to the city.
The Old Quarter Gastro Pub
Little Ellen Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Had a four course meal here with my grandson and it gets top marks. We were greeted given excellent service throughout. The menu was varied with additional specials board. We both had chicken wings for starters, I had steak with onions and mushrooms and pepper sauce, he had the special burger with bacon and cheese, both perfect. I had white chocolate cheese cake and he had hot chocolate fudge cake for desert topped off with tea and coffee. The menu was excellent value and the service gets top marks. It was my first time visiting and will definitely return. Lovely seating outside also with heaters.
O'Gradys Bar & Restaurant
The Square, Gort, Galway
Stopped off here for carvery lunch after a walk in Coole Park with friends. The food was delicious, well priced and cooked to perfection, I had the roast pork with apple sauce, others had the chicken, salmon, etc all were very pleased. Metered parking right outside the door and a browse around the shops ended a perfect day. I had been in O Gradys about 10 years ago and it left a good feeling so I returned and will do so again.
Shamrock Chinese Restaurant
Ennis Rd, Limerick City, Limerick
Live not too far away from this restaurant but favoured others and now I am wondering why. Parked outside, great welcome, varied and inexpensive menu, fast and attentive service and the food was excellent. We had a starter to share followed by duck. It was just perfect and we were both delighted with it and said we will definitely be back. I am looking forward to my next visit which will I hope be soon. Highly recommended.
Morrisseys Seafood Bar & Grill
Doonbeg Village, Doonbeg, Clare
Had Sunday lunch here with a group of friends and was truly amazed to get such fine food in such a small village. The food was the best seafood I had in a very long time. The jumbo prawns in garlic butter that I had for mains were a delight to behold, and my companions were equally as pleased. Great variety of deserts and coffee ended our perfect meal. Service was excellent, parking right outside the door all made it a perfect lunch, Will definitely be back and recommend this venue highly.
The Firefly Steakhouse
4 George's Quay, Limerick, Limerick City, Limerick
Got a pigsback voucher for the early bird for 2 for 21.50. When I rang and said I had a voucher I felt the lady was hesitant as to whether they had a vacancy or not but said she would fit me in and rehash some tables,.When we got to the restaurant at the 6 pm booking there were just 2 other couples there. Chicken wings were off the menu so I had prawns & my partner had ribs, both tasty. For mains he had beef and I had pork, small portions so we had to get chips to supplement. Deserts were good. We each had a glass of wine, very overpriced for cheap wine at 7 euro per glass. In other restaurants same wine is 4-5 euro. Coffee was 2.50 no offer of refils. I was disappointed with athmosphere as it was the friday of the bank holiday weekend with Riverfest & the great Limerick run weekend. The voucher was to be for 43 euro worth of food and the extras of 2 x wine and 2 x coffees for 19 euro. If I paid 62 euro for that I would feel like I really got stung big time.
Paddy Burkes (The Oyster Inn)
Clarenbridge, Clarenbridge, Galway
This is one of my favourite haunts on way from Galway to Limerick. I always know I will get a great steak and its a nice break on the journey. This evening was no exception. Great parking at the rear, warm welcome, fast ad friendly service and most of all great food. We both enjoyed a large steak with all the trimmings cooked to perfection, sizzling and tasty. Touristy prices but it is a well known and well run establishment with a great reputation . Would recommend.

Greene's Cafe & Bistro
63 William St, Limerick City, Limerick
Had coffee and scones here one morning sitting outside watching the world go by on this lovely little street. It was a very pleasant experience and will definitely both recommend it and return myself, The service was excellent, the girls were bright and cheerful and the scones hot and scrumptous, the rasberry jam was to die for and for a quick break during shopping I couldnt recommend it highly enough. Nest time I have it earmarked for some tasty treats from the deli counter for lunch 5/5.
The Red Onion
74 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Two of us went here for Sunday lunch and were disappointed. To start with I got a table facing the toilet door with a hatch beside the table where the used dishes were constantly being put into even though there were several vacant tables in the main body of the restaurant. The prawn starter and spare ribs were delicious, my beef was great but the chips in the sole dish were undercooked, hard and inedible. The desert platter was passable the only thing we ate was the chocolate brownie to share, and a rasberry sponge, the ice cream and vanilla dip were tasteless and we left them. Coffee was good with free refil. Service was excellent, parking outside the door and the starters were about the only thing I could recommend, With so many fine restaurants nearby I wont be returning.
Russells Select Bar
Fr. Russell Road, Dooradoyle, Limerick
Had lunch here on friday at lunch time with a friend. I found the staff vey friendly and helpful. I had the mains salad which had a plentiful selection of meat and fish to choose from and my friend had cod mornet which he enjoyed, As a previous reviewer said the chips came in a tiny bowl on the side and were not nice which was a pity. The meals were 9.95 each which was average, Coffee was lovely and came with 2 nice biscuits on the side. Parking was plentiful outside the door and this place made a nice change for one who does lunch on a regular basis. I would go there again as the location is good and atmosphere pleasant. It has a few adjoining shops too so I found that convenient.
Courtenay Lodge Hotel
Newcastle West, Newcastle West, Limerick
Had a late lunch here on Monday when passing through the area. The service was good, food nice and athmosphere pleasant with a nice buzz in Harrys bar and Bistro. We both went for the burger with chips and salad for 9.95, it was a large homemade burger, very tasty and cooked to perfection. The menu had some great choices and prices were good. Great place to stop when on the main road with lots of parking right outside the door. Just what we needed here.
Listowel Arms Hotel
The Square, Listowel, Listowel, Kerry
Had Sunday lunch here with a friend and enjoyed the old world athmosphere and the ambiance of the place. It was very busy with customers of all ages and natinalities and a nice few locals too. Had drink in the bar first where the service was excellent. The menu was varied and well priced for a high class establishment. Excellent location, lots of parking outside and lovely views of the town square. Will be back in September for race week and much looking forward to it.
Royal China (Kerry)
58 William Street, Listowel, Kerry
Dined here Sunday night on way back from Ballybunnion. It was an excellent meal and deserving of the words gourmet restaurant. The service was excellent, food top quality and prices as expected, The restaurant at the front was full with a great buzz and the takeaway had a constant flow of locals which was obviously a great sign. The house wine was excellent too and would recommend this restaurant highly. I will definitely return on my next visit to the area. They also have a well stocked bar and the decour was very inviting. Top marks.
The Promenade, Lahinch, Clare
Myself and a friend dined here on our way back from the Willie Clancy festival in Miltown purely because of the great food and great views. It was at sunset so we got an excellent view and were not disappointed; We both had the beer battered fish and chips with tartar sauce, side salad and chips, Delicious and filling is how I would describe it, There were a few groups there so the buzz was excellent and I have to give special mention to the excellent staff who give a wonderful service even when under pressure at this time of year in a popular resort. I have been here before and will be back again.
The Bridgewater Inn
Canal View, Sallins, Kildare
Ate here with a group of friends and it was a most enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was great a nice buzz for a mid week night, We had the wine and dine special 50 euro per couple which was great value. I had the garlic prawns for starters and the duck for mains. wine was well chosen and it was exactly what we needed on the night. Location was wonderful, parking outside and a return is definitely on the cards when Im in that area again, Full marks we had a great evening.
Blue Door Restaurant
Church View, Adare, Limerick
Had a wonderful romantic dinner for two in this wonderful restaurant, The ambiance, atmosphere, service and food were excellent, everything I expected and more. I had the smoked duck for starter and scallops for mains both delicious. Great choice to pick from and outdoor dining available too on a beautiful summers evening that it was. If I were to say one thing, it would be that they should invest in some large wine glasses to compliment their excellent wine selection which cried out for large goblets.. I would recommend this venue highly and will definitely return.
The Arches Restaurant
Main st Adare, Adare, Limerick
Was taken to this lovely family run restaurant by a friend as a treat. We had the 4 course set meal for 29 euro, and what value it turned out to be. The food was plentiful, well presented and top quality. The service was excellent and great personal touch and attention from John the owner. Complimentary Balileys after the meal added a great touch. The restaurant was busy, a gret buzz and the other guests were equally as impressed as I was. Top marks for this top class spot right in the centre of Adare village.
Hugh's On the Greene
Grennhills Hotel, Ennis Rd, Limerick City, Limerick
Had carvery lunch here yesterday with a collogue. The choice, food and service were 2nd to none. I had the roast beef and my friend had chicken, both could not be beaten. Large portions, good prices and great choice of vedg and potatoes. Lovely athmosphere made it a wonderful experience and I will return again for sure and recommend it to my friends in the area.
Atlantic Hotel Restaurant
Main Street, Lahinch, Clare
Taken here by a friend for some long promiced good food, I was not to be disappointed. It is a favourite haunt of theirs and I can see why. Nice athmosphere, pleasant staff, good food and good prices made it a very pleasant visit for us. I found it old style with an older more discerning clientel who looked as if it was a long time favourite of theirs as well. I will put it on my list again for when I am visiting Lahinch. Would recommend it.
Long Dock The
West Street, Carrigaholt, Carrigaholt, Clare
Visited here with a group on Sunday for the oyster festival, There was great activity in the little villlage and a nice crowd around. The restaurant I had visited before and always go for seafood chowder and seafood platter. Both were excellent, service was good even though the staff were rushed. Prices were about average for a highly rated touristy seafood restaurant, Pints were good, and sitting outside in the sun was the icing on the cake. Will be back again before the season is over.
JP Clarke's Gastro Pub
Beside Gallaghers, Bunratty, Clare
One of my favourite haunts, I return here again and again,. Not only for the excellent variety of food, the specials board, the friendly staff but for the ambiance of the place itself and the village. Whether you go for the gallery location, a seat by the fire or a front window seat you will not be disappointed. A special mention for the friendly and helpful staff and the excellent choices of wine also. Will be back soon again.
Shannon Town Centre, Shannon, Clare
Had lunch here to day for a change and it was top class. A great buzz in the bar with workers on their lunch break, Great variety of self service dishes. The staff were helpful and friendly and the price was good too, Portions were excellent and food hot and tasty. It was very busy and that gave a nice atmospher. I would highly recommend this and will be back for sure. Well done. Free parking too.
Moran's Oyster Cottage
The Weir, Kilcolgan, Kilcolgan, Galway
Veered off the main road home to have a late lunch here as we had heard so much about it. The location is wonderful and on a clear sunny day it was a dream come true. We walked about for a while to build up an appetite and then partook of some smoked salmon and brown bread with a lemon twist. The ambiance of the place grabbed us from the moment we set foot inside the door. A little expensive but it is a tourist attraction so it was worth the bit extra for the experience, We lingered and truly enjoyed it all.
McDonagh's Seafood House
22 Quay Street, Galway, Galway City, Galway
What can I say that has not already been said. Its reputation speaks for itself. Apart from the most delicious seafood I have ever had in any part of the world |I have travelled. Truly excellent and well deserving of its awards. The nicest seafood and nicest chips ever and not as expensive as I had thought bearing in mind its world renound. We ate here for lunch but to be honest we did not eat for the rest of the day it was so filling and tasty. I will definitely be back on my next visit to the city.
The Pins Bar @ The Twelve Hotel
The Twelve, Bearna Village, Galway City, Galway
Said I would try this for a friday night meal after reading some favourable reviews on here. Was staying locally in a cottege for the weekend and after some pre dinner drinks in a well know local bar we came across to the Twelve. There was a nice buzz for a friday night, staff were busy but friendly. Menu was varied with food to suit all tastes. Portions were goood too and good value for what we paid. It also had wifi internet access which was great for people like ourselves on the go. I would recommend it.
Egg Cafe @ Brown Thomas
Level One, 14 - 16 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Went here with my sister while doing some shopping. It served as a nice break for a sit down and a glass of wine. Surroundings were pleasant, staff attentive and food good, I found the menu somewhat limited but we got a tasty lunch and a nice crisp glass of white wine. We chatted over coffee and were not rushed. Restaurant was busy with lots of singles just coming in for a main cource, coffee and read of the paper. It seemed to have a lot of repeat professional clients as its so conveniently located. Nearby restrooms were spotless and convenient location made this a good experience.
109, O'Connell St, Limerick City, Limerick
Popped in here after work with some workmates. We had hot chocolate and a trio of deserts which were delicious. it was a cold evening so it just hit the spot. The sampler was great as we got to taste different deserts and went down a treat with all 4 of us girls. We got a window table so had a view of the city and the passers by and enjoyed a nice chat in pleasant modern surroundings. Great service and excellent staff would make me return again and again.
Eddie Rockets - (Travel Lodge)
Coonagh Roundabout, Limerick City, Limerick City, Limerick
Stopped here en route to Galway. Very conveniently located on main road with lots of free parking. Service was fast and friendly and food was good and filling. It set us up for the trip ahead. We had a voucher for a meal deal for 2 which proved no problem, the staff member said yes no problem thats great and we were given an excellent meal well presented and served quickly with a smile. I did feel though that without the voucher the prices are a bit on the expensive side. If one was to add up all the individual dishes fries dips and drinks it could cost more than you would expect. We got great value and were happy with our visit.
The Ballycasey Craft Centre, Shannon, Clare
Went here to day for lunch with a few girls from work. We like it here as there is plenty of free parking, a few shops to look round and it gets us out of the office. The staff are very friendly and know us now and know our needs. Service is fast which suits us on our lunch break, lots of friendly smiles. To day I had lasagne and chips and coldslaw, ample portions, piping hot and a good price too. Its a nice casual dining experience for lunch on the go,
Old Mill Bar & Restaurant
O'Brien's Bridge, Obriensbridge, Clare
I was in this area doing a bit of walking on the canal and other walkers recommended the Mill for a good wholesome feed. I had the bacon and cheese burger which was tasty and filling after a few hours walking. The pub is quaint, staff friendly, parking outside, nice scenic area, prices good. It was nice and relaxing beside an open fire with mostly locals having the craic and banter. i enjoyed the visit and left feeling full and satisfied. I have recommended this place to a few friends so that speaks for itself.
Goosers Bar and Eating House
Ballina, Killaloe, Clare
I found this a little bit too touristy, and prices were geared towards tourists too. Even starter dishes like seafood chowder were way over priced. The place was quiet but I am told it is busy in the summer when the cruisers are on the lake. Service was good and food tasty but I had looked forward to this and was a bit disappointed.
Doonbeg Golf Club
Miltown Malbay Road, Doonbeg, Clare
This golf club delights my heart in every possible way. I love the atmosphere and buzz in the bar. Went in for just a glass of wine or two and the food looked so tempting we could not resist eating there that evening. The presentation, the service, the menu and the food left nothing to be desired. I love the views from the bar and the Christmas decorations and the Marque added to the fairytale ambiance of this truly magnificant place. Some great walks in the vacinity of the club with ample parking make this a perfect place for a complete day out.
Copper & Spice - Kilkee
Marine Hotel, Circular Road, Kilkee, Clare
Got a longing for a good Indian and returned here as I enjoyed my previous visit, The restaurant was clean, staff freindly and food delicious. The prices were good but I found the king prawn dishes a bit expensive but the dish was excellent. If you are in the area and want a good authentic Indian this is the place to go. They do very good specials ie early bird etc, must try that the next time I dine there, I will be back.
Gallagher's Seafood Restaurant
JP Clarkes Country Pub, Bunratty, Clare
One of the nicest and most quaint restaurants I have ever eaten in. The cottage effect is very appealling and the ambiance of the whole place is enchanting. I go for the evening meal for Euro 60 for two with coffee and wine. Truely great value, from the welcome when you arrive, to the varied bread basket, the menu and the specials, the mouthwatering deserts, coffee, wine. The staff are most friendly, the restaurant spotless, well equipped ladies room and nice seating outside the door for a summers evening to take in the atmosphere of Bunratty village. Booking is advisable as I have been disappointed once and learned by my mistake. .
Shannon Town Centre, Shannon, Clare
Zest is one of the gems in Shannon town and since it opened it made the shopping center so upbeat. Its modern decor and friendly staff as well as its competitive prices will draw you in time after time. The evening menu with bottle of wine for two just cant be beaten with free admission to the night club thrown in. I have been here on numerous occassions for lunch, popped in for coffee when I unexpectedly met a friend, and for the wine and dine special at night. Every time I am impressed with this upbeat bistro. Again I have to mention the friendly and helpful staff who take time to give you individual attention. A true addition to Shannon.
Mortell's Delicatessen & Seafood Restaurant
49 Roches Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Saw that several of my facebook friends had recommended Mortells so when I needed a full Irish Breakfast before a meeting in town it sprang to mind straight away. Centrally located, nice atmosphere, good staff and at 8.95 we left full and ready to brace the day. It was exactly what we needed and was well recommended, I added it to my facebook too so that is my recommendation.
3 O'Connell Avenue, Limerick City, Limerick
Had an early evening bite here with a friend. We were told to try the beer battered fish and chips and my God it did not disappoint, it was finger licking good. Well priced, served with a smile, nice atmosphere during a rugby game and a nice friday evening after work buzz about the place. Handy parking outside the door and lots of other bars in the area within a few minutes walking distance. I enjoyed my visit here and would recommend it to you.
O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick
A friend and I popped in here to day for a quick bite before the Munster game at Thomand park, Dining area spotless, nice buzz, excellent varied menu, staff attentive and friendly with help and smiles and excellent value for money, We both had the tasty duck and rice and found it filling and delicious. This is a great late venue if out in town on a tight budget. One of my regular venues.
Conservatory Restaurant @ Carrygerry House
Carrygerry Country House, Shannon, Clare
Dined here with a large group. We were so well taken care of and felt very special. From being seated in a small room to read the menu and have pre dinner drinks to being bid good night to when leaving. Food was excellent and we availed of the dinner menu which was good value. Its a great country location, off the beaten track with old world athmosphere and character. Great value too for accomodation and ideal for parties, weddings and get togethers. A great benefit to the area.
Ballyvaughan, Clare, Ballyvaghan, Clare
Stopped here while out for a Burne walk. Good parking outside. Seafood excellent, and Im told the pint was good. Staff friendly, big fire on which made a great athmosphere on a cold day. Service was fast and some pleasantries were exchanged with a smile. Prices are high but it has a good name and is popular with tourists which hikes up the bill a bit. A nice treat if out for a Sunday drive but would not be able to afford it too often. Well worth a visit as a treat.
The Hunters Lodge
Main Street, Newmarket-on-Fergus, Newmarket on Fergus, Clare
Took a detour into Nemarket for some food at lunch time. Parking was hard to find and had to walk a while to the bar. The food was average, service ok and prices standard. Nothing stood out to impress me much. it did its job in that I wasnt hungry when I left. I wouldn t be going out of my way again.
Fables Restaurant @ The Unicorn Pub
St Nessans Road, Dooradoyle, Limerick
I meet family here as its a half way location for Sunday lunch on a regular basis. They offer excellent deals for mains, desert and coffee and its hard to be beaten, As its buffet style you can get as much or as little as you like. The servers are courteous and helpful and always make you feel special. Management are always on hand keeping an eye on things and ensuring that customers are kept happy.Food is tasty and well presented and the dining area is very pleasant. Nice smoking area and handy parking just outside. Its minutes from the Crescent shopping centre so we pop there afterwards for a spot of retail therapy to work off our fine meal. This is a regular on my list. I also see parties and groups catered for with a lot of special offers.
Vaughans Anchor Inn Bar
Main Street, Liscannor, Clare
Dined here while staying at the Liscannor bay Logues hotel . As it was across the road it was a must to try. A great athmosphere in the area with people outside chatting, drinking and relaxing.. The decor is nautical and in keeping with the area and made pleasant dining, The staff were friendly but the service was a little slow but the wine helped to pass the time. Prices were a bit expensive for recessionary times in a small village in West Clare but the food was good and a great night was had by all.
Sli na Mara, Shannon, Clare
Visited here for a good Irish breakfast after a night out as I felt a good fry up was on the cards. Staff were friendly and chatty and service was fast. Food was just perfect for what we needed and good portions were received. Value was good and athmosphere was quaint and relaxing. I know why my friends recommended it to me that morning. A great place for breakfast and I see they also have a tasty and varied menu. Worth a visit.
Creamery Bar & Restaurant The
Old Bunratty Road, Bunratty, Clare
Visited here with a family group for a nice lunch and a bit of shopping in the local area. The place was busy and the staff ok. The burger was excellent, cooked as I liked it and very filling. Other members had fish, and pizza and all were pleased. We thought it was a bit expensive for pub grub and the bill was substancial when we included drinks and minerals but its a prime location in a tourist area so to be expected I imagine. I would recommend it for a no fuss on the spot bit of bar food.
Delish - Castletroy
Castletroy Park Commerical Campus, Castletroy, Limerick
Was shopping in the area with a friend and as we had heard so many great things about Delish we had to try it. We had a wonderful sandwich of italian meats accompanied by a glass of white Italian wine and it hit the spot.. We chatted and relaxed in lovely athmosphere and the friendly girls made sure we had everything we needed. The icing on the cake was when a well known Munster rugby player came in with his dad for some food and I was able to get his autograph. What a day, Never to be forgotten, I have been back many times and at this stage have had everhthing on the menue and can recommend them all. Well done and keep it going.
116 O'Connell Street, Limerick City, Limerick
Booked a table for two as we felt we deserved a fine stake as a nice treat on a Saturday night, We were not disappointed. As always it was truly succelent, cooked to perfection and not at all bad value for money. Accompanied by a lovely bottle of red the whole evening was memorable. Service was good for a very busy evening where the staff were run off thier feet, but always smiled and acknowledged us. The deserts were so hard to choose as all seemed nicer than the next and when they arrived they were pefection. A great evening in a perfect city cente location.
The Fig Tree Restaurant @ Dromoland Castle
Newmarket-On-Fergus, Newmarket on Fergus, Clare
Our boss took our staff here for a Christmas lunch and we had a most enjoyable day, Great athmosphere, friendly staff, magnificant location. The food was excellent and the entire party did not have one fault to find. Everyone truly enjoyed the delicious food and athmosphere,. We just wished we could have stayed longer and we will return in the not too distant future and next time enjoy the grounds and take a walk on a good day. For the location in question the prices are good, we were treated but were pleasantly surprised at the value.
Unit B3 Sky Court Shopping Centre, Shannon Street, Shannon, Clare
This is a cheap and cheerful place to stop for lunch while out shopping. The value is excellent and the staff friendly. Its clean and excellently located so makes a very handy stop for a hungry shopper or someone rushing on their lunch break. I use it very regularly and its a handy place to meet friends as its a great location in the food court . I think the value is what attracts most people here and is popular with young and old alike. I go there every week with work collogues and its very pleasant,
Gus O'Connor's Pub
Fisherstreet, Doolin, Clare
I visited here with a group of girls for womens Christmas. We go here on a regular basis for the food, the ambiance and the music. We are never disappointed. A short spin up the road with beautiful scenery adds to the expectation of our destination. The staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful. Food always delicious and plentiful. A nice drink, good food, warm fire and bubbly staff always make this a memorably outing and a much looked forward to return. Top marks.
