Beautiful, quaint, welcoming, authentic Irish charm with fresh farm produce and farm fresh meat, David Foley, owner and chef along with the staff of wild geese for 16 years has established himself with many awards. While traveling through or staying in Adare stop by and enjoy really great food. Thanks, I&P

Adare was my mother's and my last town we visited in Ireland. Loved the cottage style restaurant! The service was excellent and the staff were super friendly. A lot of food for the price!

Beautiful quaint little restaurant, full of character. Had a great family lunch that kept us full for the day. Great service, friendly staff and delicious food. The children enjoyed their experience immensely as the chief took the trouble to come out and take their order and made fun looking dishes. Each course was fabulously presented and tasted gorgeous. Can't wait... More

We booked a table on-line which is always very convenient. Before being seated in the restaurant, you are brought into a "sitting room" to look at the menu. Admittedly was disappointed a little plus its a set menu at fixed prices. The staff are very friendly and cannot be faulted. The food is fine, admittedly it was not the best... More
