We have dined at O'Grady's on a number of occasion's over the past 8 years and this visit over Christmas was just like all the other....spectacular as usual. The location, at the end of the laneway near the pier, is wonderful. The staff are always friendly and the ambience is cozy and cheerful. We sat upstairs with our friends from... More

A highlight of our recent stay in Barna. Wonderful seafood in a charming setting (in particular, the views from the first floor are stunning - request a window table!). The service was efficient and the food good value. Very popular spot so it's best to make a reservation.

We visited OGradys for lunch and enjoyed some great cuisine. The seafood linguine was outstanding with some of the best cooked prawns in Ireland. The sweet potato soup was a great appetiser and the kids enjoyed a yummy pasta. The salmon risotto was also amazing. Great food and great and great service. We will be back.

Service was exceptional. Every item was explained to me with a view to shellfish allergy. Food was amazing. Sat next to a window table so watching wildlife and the ocean was fabulous. Lovely walk along the coastline after Lunch.

O'Grady's is a restaurant for food lovers. Everything from seafood to steak to dessert (especially dessert) was just fabulous. The restaurant has two floors, and we had a great view of the pier from the second floor. It wasn't a noisy place, which I liked. It seemed like locals come here to enjoy good food and good conversation. On the... More

Ogradys as always was perfect. We had the scallops and beef rib for starter which was amazing and venison and juniper berries for main, without doubt the nicest venison I've ever had. We couldn't resist the chocolate apocalypse for dessert, all in all a fantastic evening of food!! Highly recommended

Where do I start!? I've had far worse meals in terms of quality of the food but in terms of value and service this was really poor. From the outset the head waitress/manageress(possibly) stood coldly over us waiting for our orders when clearly we weren't ready having just settled at our table. She was frosty and absolutely no help. When... More

Fine food and service in a lovely location. If I had to criticise one thing it would.be the cheese selection consisting entirely of semi soft cheeses. But that would be quibbling.
