Not a bad spot to stop in for a bite. You got subway, Dijon deli cafe, you got o briens sandwich bar and you have a chicken hut chipper.lots of parking but these seem to always be full due to the hotel next door. Sound midway stop off motorway from Dublin to cork. 👍🏻

For a while this was our favourite stop to use the loo and grab breakfast/lunch/snack. Always loved it - although I invariably complained about the shockingly slow service at O' Briens - but they had the best sandwiches on offer. Then we visited and the loos seemed less than clean. And we visited again and the same thing. We were... More

This is a great little food court, kept spotlessly clean and with lots of free parking. There's room for another food outlet or two there, but it's pretty good as it is - we come here for pizza most weekends (live locally) as its my nephew's favourite 😍

The Midway is a good spot to drop into if you are on the M7 for food or a bathroom break. A variety of small fast food outlets here. It opens around 8 am so not great for the early morning traveller.

Midway is a handy place to stop between towns. It used to have more dining options but a lot are closed up. We usually go to OBriens but this time tried the cafe at the other end. The cake was still frozen and it was the most miserable mug of tea It did have a large selection of cooked food... More

I had some lunch in Midway Foodcourt, from Sub shop. The foodcourt tables are kept clean and clear by a zealous lady and it is comfortable with soft seats.

I like this place as it has so much to offer. From fast food to just real home food. Everyone will find something that suits them.
