Very good place to eat, excellent Al la cart menu, also early bird. Cater well for special needs diets, I am coeliac. And they catered for starter, mains and dessert to suit. Beautiful location, friendly helpful staff, excellent food and wine selection. What more could you ask for

Did not know what to expect when we visited this restaurant for dinner two weeks ago. What a pleasant surprise we got. The food was as good as anything you'd get here in suburban, Washington DC. The celery soup with apple was excellent and I loved the Pork Belly with braised red cabbage and applesauce.....All five members of my party... More

We came here for a New Years Eve meal on this occasion, it has been a while since we dined here, but felt it was time for a return! The menu was a 5 course set-menu, We both started off with the Warm Chicken Ballotine - this was a real teaser! Very tasty, with a dollop of relish set on... More

This was my second time to eat in Kilkieran Cottage. This little gem in south Kilkenny is not to be missed if you are anywhere in the Waterford/South Tipperary area. The area has High Crosses also, so a double reason to visit. We were greeted by the owner, Ade, and a delightful waitress from the local area. I was sorry... More

Booked for four people on Father's Day. Arrived and the table was not even set. Bear in mind there was only two other tables with guests. We were presented with menus. Three of the menus were the same and the fourth was different. We were given the "correct" menu. We ordered our food. Shortly after, we had to re order... More

...... and unfortunately this was nothing like good food. We went to this restaurant just over 2 years ago and had a good hearty well cooked meal and left feeling happy. Today we had a meal that started with shop bought prawns wrapped in filo pastry and a goats cheese mousse which was lost on the plate. We went on... More

We were told that this restaurant was fine dining, unfortunately the cost was but the food and service were not. We paid €28 for an ordinary bottle of wine, the waitress just poured it out without a taisting. After a very ordinary veg soup and chicken cesaer salad with one small piece of chicken we had hake which was over... More
