Had some family visiting from England. We took in a nice scenic walk by the canal and bridge. It was followed by some nice bar food and friendly service in the bar. Cozy, nice atmosphere and easy on the pocket. Perfect spot really for visitors.

I attended a wedding at The Rustic Inn recently and was blown away by the standard set by this small, rural hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted by two lovely staff members who served mulled wine, prosecco, tea and coffee. Tables were laid with plates of beautiful fresh scones with jam and cream, little mince pies and other nibbles. The... More

My wife and I ate here when we stopped overnight in Abbeyshrule while cruising the Royal Canal. The restaurant seemed to be closed (possibly the aftermath of a big funeral that afternoon) so we ate in the bar, which was fine, if a little dark. Service was good, as was the food, albeit a little plain for our palettes, though... More
