We booked DB&B at the Olde Post Inn after reading several good reviews however still not knowing what to expect on your first visit. To our total delight the whole experience was faultless and truly amazing. From meeting the friendly smiling welcoming face of Tara as entered showing us a newly decorated room at the top of the stairs. Well... More

I haven't been to the olde post inn for years, but on a whim, decided to have Sunday lunch there as a post New Year's Eve recovery. I had actually forgotten how lovely the restaurant is with the cosy bar and reception area and the smell of a real turf fire burning away. Staff are super friendly and helpful, specially... More

No booking arrived at 14:00 and they took us straight away. Wife is gluten intolerant and every item on the menu could be adjusted for her as the owner is a celeriac, (and has written a very good cook book). Staff could not be more friendly. Meals were superb and we will certainly call again. Very busy and lots of... More

We inquired about good restaurants in the area while golfing at the Farnham Estate GC. This one was recommended and our wonderful hotel Radisson Blu in Cavan gave us good directions there and called for our 6 pm reservation. We arrived just before 6 pm and soon found this would be our most special and expensive dinner of our Ireland... More

We had a special meal at the Olde Post Inn and would recommend it highly to those willing to seek it out! It is an enchanting place and the food and service were of the highest quality we had encountered on our journey to this date.

We dined at the Olde Post Inn, where we were staying, on a busy Saturday night. The owners, Gearoid & Tara Lynch, have done a wonderful job in refurbishing the restaurant and inn. We chose the 5 course menu when we booked, so an 8pm sitting was recommended. The evening was very leisurely and unhurried as a result. You're welcomed... More
