Stopped here for breakfast. The food was okay, but not as good as most of the Irish breakfasts and buffets I had throughout my trip.

A group of 10 cyclists converges on a bar is not the beginning of a joke, but the situation we faced just last week. It was clear from our accents that we were tourists, so they provided table service, which was not the norm. The food was fair to good, but the prices were reasonable. No one left hungry.

Arrived at ten to nine on a Friday night to eat and was told "no,no food after nine" and when mentioned it was only ten to nine, staff became rude telling us "to go get a takeaway" safe to say won't be returning or recommending!

The room was dirty. There were large webs with dead flies in the window behind us. The servers were pleasant, but didn't do much. The food was really bad.

Our first stop for 3 days after landing at Shannon was perfect! Nellies was not some anonymous hotel but chock full of Irish personality. My husband was even invited to place some bets on the horse race that some of the locals in the pub where following. Nellie was in charge of collecting the bets and calling the bookie. Great...

We walked into the sun porch of the Ravine Hotel looking for a simple breakfast. A very friendly woman came out and said she'd be happy to make us breakfast. "Two Full?" she asked, and we responded "yes". We were then served a delicious full Irish breakfast of bacon, sausages, white pudding, black pudding, a fried egg, a mountain of... More

We stopped at this place for lunch on our way from the cliffs of moher to Galway since the cafeteria at the cliffs of moher was so crowded and were pleasantly surprised by this road side pub that serves food all day! We had the toasted sandwiches (€4.50) that contained chicken, tomatoes and cheese which were very good and the... More

We were stopping through and decided to drop in for a cup of tea and scones. That was fine. But we were taking care of a few elderly men in their 80's. One of which who is a very nice man but a little confused. He was looking for a toilet when one of the staff came bursting out, all... More
