Dropped into the Fiddlers Elbow en route home from Christmas shopping in Dublin as my boyfriend wanted to see a football match and I fancied some food. I have to say that I couldn't recommend this establishment more. Great facilities for watching the match with large screen over the bar, food was delicious and staff were attentive and very friendly... More

We drove through the little town today and stumbled across this excellent place... we opted to go for the Sunday carvery lunch which was excellent with good portion size for a very reasonable price. The interior is just as beautiful as the food and would definitely recommend a visit!

Ordered the beef burger which comes as stated with cheese asked for some sauté onions as a topping, burger came with onions on the side. Do you offer extra up selling toppings rather than an overpriced side order for my burger. €3.50 I was charged for my topping. Chocolate brownie of low quality and €6.50 is very expensive for dessert... More

Thank you for dining with us and for posting a review on your experience, along with a few suggestions. The suggestion of an extra up topping is not something we want to implement as we find this to have the feel of a fast food outlet. Our side orders are competitively priced with surrounding restaurant establishments as are our desserts... More

As we were visiting Carrickmacross for the first time recently, we looked up reviews for where to eat and The Fiddlers Elbow stood out as the number one place to go. We were not disappointed. We had midweek dinner and we were so impressed with the choice and quality of food. As I'm vegetarian, food can often be hit or... More
