Excellent Irish food, great selection, wonderful wait staff. Grilled salmon and Grilled Chicken Breast was phenomenal! A locally brewed amber ale complemented it well. The shared dessert plate sampler was delightful. If you get to Ballina/Killaloe, please treat yourself to Goosers. You will thank me..

Third times we eat at Goosers and still a great pleasure. Very good food, you have the choice between fish coming from the lake and local meat. With a good selection of beers and Gin's! What else to ask?

We came here for lunch on a beautiful day so sitting outside was in order. I went for the fish pie which was very tasty with a light creamy sauce. The flavours were morish and the cheese topping did the business. For dessert I went...More
