The location is amazing, the interior warm and comfortable and the whole Byrnes family is simply affable and kind! We had wonderful dinner during St.Patricks holiday and we could choose from many extra-menu dishes, all prepared with fresh ingredients. The portions were plentiful and high quality ones! We can't wait to come back!

We all truly enjoyed this meal and restaurant. We came for an early dinner and it wasn't. I highly recommend the salmon if they have it! And I don't recommend the dessert sampler. While its yummy, it equates to about 3 bites

We had four adults, two kids. First they forgot we ordered drinks. They brought out my daughters dinner and no one else's. She ate her dinner, they came and cleared the entire table. We still didn't have our drinks so we inquired about them and they sent a new waitress over. They thought we were finished and didn't realize we... More

I'm a vegetarian, and there was a delicious carrot/coconut soup and a few other things for the non meat eaters to choose from. My friend got the fresh sea bass and practically licked the plate clean, and he's not a big eater. He said it was the best he'd ever had and considering he lives near the ocean, that's a... More

We are both vegetarian and I am allergic to dairy. At Byrnes the chef offered us delicious suitable options instead of the usual "We can do a salad" or "We can leave out the meat". Our server, Sean, was most professional. We also enjoyed the view. Well worth a detour. We do hope to dine there again. Sheelagh & Tony

This is the only restaurant in Ennistymon that opens in the evening so we booked it for dinner, to my surprise it was nice the waiter was very friendly and helpful with his opinions on items on the menu. The food was very good and good value. I think they should change their tablecloths from plastic to linen especially at... More
