In the top ten of nicest places to eat in Clonmel has to be Tierneys. Full bar also available. Lovely pub interior and lovely little restaurant space. Delicious affordable food that is in top ten of local food joints....I will visit again. I really recommend this place 100%.

Yet again a visit to this restaurant did not fail to impress me. I had great quality good food with decent sized portions and all served in a cosy spotless bar. What more could a hungry visitor to this town ask for? Well done to Tierneys.

Had lunch here today with a friend, food was gorgeous and staff were really friendly, have been going here for a long time but it's just so homely you can't resist it, it's definitely a place you'd always come back to without fail!

Staying for a few days in Clonmel, we came across this cosy, friendly, warm pub with good food and great service. If you are looking for fine dining - look elsewhere. If you are looking for warmth, attentive service and good home cooking you will find it here - don't visit Clonmel without visiting Sean McTierney's.

We apologise that your visit was not up to what you expected.

Just been told to have our dinner here by friends and I was so not disappointed! The Clonakilty Chicken is ... there are no words for such a level of flavour.
