Dropped in for a meal and happened to be in the pub when Ireland beat South Africa in the rugby so everyone was happy. Not an extensive menu but reasonably priced, the service was quick and the hamburger tasty.

We used Kinvara to see the Burren, Doolin, and the Cliffs of Moher. We had a busy day seeing the sights and really enjoyed coming back to our lovely room at the Merriman. The staff was very helpful with suggestions to help us plan our day. There is a parking lot adjacent to the hotel. We ate dinner at the...

We were looking for a nice place to stop for lunch after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and driving to Galway. The Thatch Bar in the Merriman Hotel was the perfect place to stop. The restaurant and bar looked like had been recently remodeled. The food was good and the staff was very nice.

This Hotel is wonderful, close enough to the Burren and close enough to Galway city to facilitate visiting these lovely places. The food served in the Hotel is excellent and reasonably priced. The family room we stayed in was large with a nice sized bathroom, redecoration may be needed soon.

Lovely food, tasty, well presented and good value. The menu is quite straight forward but sometimes simplicity is good! We certainly enjoyed it and hope to go back again. Worth a...

Had the most fantastic weekend break in the Merriman Hotel Kinvara Co Galway. Excellent food and entertainment. Quiet secluded village but regular bus service to Galway City. Would absolutely go back to the hotel

I went here with my mother for the weekend. I was not too captivated by the outside but inside it was cosy, quaint and inviting. Charming and picturesque decor and lovely warm reception. The staff were exceptionally friendly. Always smiling, extremely helpful and a delight. The food was fine, nothing too fancy but the portions were a good size. The...

Used to go here quite a bit. Food was always hit and miss. Service was usually good. Shame what's happening now...food is more often than not miss and service is non existent in the bar. A few of the barmen do their best and are good but the general feel of the place esp from the waitresses who quite simply...
