A group of us were in Ennis last weekend and we booked 'The Dining Room' for dinner on Saturday night. It turned out to be a great choice as both the food and staff were exceptional. Very good value for money and the quality and presentation of the food was second to none. Will definitely be coming back again.

We are two adults visiting from the states. We came on a late Wednesday night, and even though we came close to closing we were warmly welcomed. I had the risotto, my fiance had the pan fried chicken, and along with the fried brie, they were all superb - best meal we've had in Ireland thus far. In addition, the... More

We had a great meal of fish & chips here. I'd also recommend the rhubarb dessert! Staff was very very friendly as well. Ennis is also a great stop in to walk around!

Great food in lovely restaurant. Lots of choice, big portion sizes and reasonably priced (€26 for starter and steak). Friendly staff and quick service. Only negative was that it was a bit cold in restaurant.

Evening out with a family of 4. A great menu, catered for a child with very bad allergies and presentation was outstanding. Choice of wine was very good and excellent tea/coffee menu. The only fault was lighting. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends, will be back again.

We went to the dining room on Wednesday evening and were so happy to have found this hidden gem on our travels. Had the duck with plum sauce for mains and my friend had chicken breast stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped with bacon and both of us were licking our lips afterwards :) We would also highly recommend the...
