Excellent, as ever - we had lovely, soft garlic bread to start, my mother had salmon, accompanied with a most decorative lemon, and I had the sirloin, which was delicious. Have to say, though, I rarely find chips in Ireland as good as those in English pubs - it is one of the things they do best. Desserts were good...

Absolutely loved TAT. First choice for family meals. Excellent choices in the 'before 1900 light menu.' Excellent Breakfast, only two choices, full or mini Irish Breakfast, but that is all you need. The customers and staff could not have been more welcoming to a bunch of Yanks.

We have never had a bad meal at the Abbey Tavern. The food has always been great with plenty of options, specials board and good kids menu. Staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. Four adults, 2 courses each, a glass of wine and soft drinks €70. Nice decor inside set in a beautiful village over looking the historic Quin Abbey.

We went to The Abbey Tavern for a night, as we went to the banquet in Knappogue Castle and everything went very well. Castle is about 5 min driving from the the B&B, it's a great spot to be. Room was spotless clean and huge compared to the usual standard of B&Bs. Mark and Sandra were very good and gave...

Where was the best food around during the Fleadh down in Ennis? In Quin, at The Abbey Tavern.....always delicious, piping hot and reasonably priced. Had way too many bad meals in Ennis this trip. And, if you like your meat cooked anywhere less than well done, one of the only places that can accommodate. Mark and his team never disappoint!

We came here by recommendation of our B+B host. We had the 3 course dinner which was good and served quickly. The only thing to "complain" is the bit hectic atmosphere which is probably usual in the season. A walk around the beautiful and. ... spooky.. abbey is highly recommended. 😊

We stopped here on our last night in Ireland. Had a seat at the bar Not sure if the bartender really wanted us there as a waitress kept coming over and taking our orders and working with us. He would mostly ignore us until she told him our order. He would serve other people over us. I am sure he...
