3 adults and two children ages 11 and 14. What can I say? An excellent home-grown experience. Amazing wholesome food in quaint surroundings. Early bird menu with a great selection 19 euro. Just the desserts were a bit expensive at 9.50 euro. They were delightful, but a bit much on cost I thought.

The three brothers in the kitchen have a unique style with a mixture of traditional Irish and French classic, influenced by country house cooking which was collected by their many years experience all over Irleand.

The Wine list is ever growing and includes something for all tastes. The restaurant offers a Early bird menu 7 days available from 5 - 7 pm and a full A la carte menu from 5 - 10 PM. Lunch is available from 1 - 2:30 PM on Sunday
