This is our 4th visit and always look forward to seeing and staying. A family run business and you always get a great welcome. As we know the owners well that little extra they do for us goes a long way. So give yourself a treat and stay or visit it's worth it.

This was my favourite place to eat out during my stay in Ireland, we were lucky as it was a 5 minute walk from were we were staying otherwise I can see how people might think it was a little out of the way. The setting couldn't be more beautiful, with the lake and the outdoor seating however even sitting... More

Friendly, casual Sunday lunch after mooring. Tasty and generous portions. Restaurant dog is the cutest! Throw stones and she fetches them, rub her tummy and she will try and follow.

I have had great Sunday Lunches here but last time it was less than expected plus the Server was not attentive, and when called seemed disinterested in solving the issue. All other times great just a bad one that day.

Really nice stay - owners extremely friendly and helpful. Lovely room overlooking lough - beautiful sunrises! Brilliant breakfast and very nice that you are accommodated on whatever time you want to have it (within reason!). Pity that food only available at weekends. Recommend burger! Very family oriented at weekend which could put many off, but so long as you are... More

It need a more imaginative approach . The whole Strokestown area needs someone who is into genuine artisan food . This is agriculture heartland but the food is so bland . Almost a complete failure to engage in imaginative cooking . Even the beef is poor quantity. That is shameful in one of the best beef producing areas in Ireland.
