This is one of the most beautifully decorated Irish pubs that I have visited. Both inside and out, this place is fantastic. My wife and I only ordered drinks during our visit, but the plates of food that I saw being served to other patrons looked and smelled delicious.

This is my second time in this pub for dinner and each time the food has been incredible. Atmosphere is so relaxed you relax and even after the worst day you leave happy, full and chilled.

In the top ten of nicest places to eat in Clonmel has to be Tierneys. Full bar also available. Lovely pub interior and lovely little restaurant space. Delicious affordable food that is in top ten of local food joints....I will visit again. I really recommend this place 100%.

Yet again a visit to this restaurant did not fail to impress me. I had great quality good food with decent sized portions and all served in a cosy spotless bar. What more could a hungry visitor to this town ask for? Well done to Tierneys.

Had lunch here today with a friend, food was gorgeous and staff were really friendly, have been going here for a long time but it's just so homely you can't resist it, it's definitely a place you'd always come back to without fail!

Staying for a few days in Clonmel, we came across this cosy, friendly, warm pub with good food and great service. If you are looking for fine dining - look elsewhere. If you are looking for warmth, attentive service and good home cooking you will find it here - don't visit Clonmel without visiting Sean McTierney's.
