“Delicious food and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed 5 February 2017

Went all out for dinner here recently and it absolutely exceeded our expectations. The food was top notch and has a great selection of all protein options on their menu to meet any preference. The lobster risotto and halibut with the mussel cream sauce was absolutely delicious. I went specifically for the colcannon potato dish as it was highly recommended by friends so was a bit disappointed it isn't there anymore in the same form! The only other suggestion I would have is to serve the lobster/crab cakes with warm chutney instead of the chutney served cold. Very small suggestion in relation to how amazing the whole meal was. Also, sticky date pudding was just so delicious!

Atmosphere was amazing... the brick walls give a historic/rustic feel, waterfall backdrop against the back wall, the bar area is very nicely laid out. Intimate yet good for a larger group. Service was also fantastic, server was attentive yet gave us time/space to enjoy our meals - great balance.

Will be back very soon - I think this is going to be our new 'go to' restaurant! Thank you!

“Wonderful Winterdine Dinner”
Reviewed 30 January 2017

We enjoyed a fabulous evening at the Claddagh Room with three other couples and we had long table at the back of the restaurant next to a "waterfall" fountain against the wall.
The square bar in the centre of the room also gave it lots of atmosphere. We all chose the "Winterdine" menu which included a carrot-cheese soup followed by a delicious steak which was cooked to perfection. The grilled beef was served with creamy mashed potatoes, oven roasted carrots, parsnips, beets, and brussel sprouts. Sticky date pudding in a rum sauce was the satisfying dessert. The restaurant was a little noisy because everyone was so excited to be inside on a cold evening with good friends, good wine, and sumptuous food. I recommend it!

“Amazing food!”
Reviewed 26 January 2017

There was a waiting line when we got there, but because they took our phone number to call us when it was our turn, we were able to have a pint next door while waiting - well managed! The waiting was worth it ; we all enjoyed our meal, sitting next to the window in this beautifully decorated old building. We loved it, would go back and would recommend it!
