Stopped here for lunch today,and I must say it was only fantastic, great service well worth a visit. There is ample amount of parking and was great value for money,the only down side for this business is it really could do with a lick of paint and cleaning up outside because it doesn't reflect the lovely place inside

Excellent service in this warm, inviting pub restaurant. Great and varied menu, with separate children's menu. Lamb shank especially good. They are also willing to amend the menu to accommodate likes and dislikes. Try the sticky toffee pudding.

Top notch hake and seafood chowder. Special of the day was grilled hake over sautéed vegetables. Near St Finnian abbey.

Food average at best, had the chicken Kiev, it was served in less than 5 minutes which is never a good sign and was underwhelming to say the least.

We've been here many times and each and every visit has been lovely. However last night was exceptional with Emily ,Erica and the ever smiling Sean looking after us so well I felt it deserved an upated review. Just love it.

My family been dining in The Monastery Inn for many years. It never disappoints. From the moment you park your car( large car parking) until you finish the amazing dessert ( last time we had traditional Xmas pudding). The waitresses are truly one of the best as always. We're really impressed with their ability to be funny, kids friendly and... More

Coming back from Dublin to carrick on Shannon today we decided we call in here for dinner hadn't been in a long time. We got two 2 courses and can only describe it as DOG food. Never will return.

Great food and atmosphere. Staff were very attentive. We visit quite often and never had a bad meal there. Beer battered mushrooms are to die for also the steak sandwich. We'll definitely be back.
