This is how our niece described The Red Door to us, having not been to it before. We went on 28 December for an evening meal. The restaurant had been very well decorated for Christmas and it was wonderful walking into the place with all the lights. We were a large group and had drinks beforehand. There are two very...

Myself and my husband were invited to spend New Years Eve with friends at The Red Door. We had a really great experience. There was a really good choice of food on the menu. I tried the scallops to start followed by the rack of lamb and then there was a trio of desserts. They managed to squeeze in a... More

We had Sunday lunch here recently and enjoyed a lovely meal. The food was good and the décor and ambience were good as well and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The view from the dining room was pleasant in December, it would be really fantastic in the spring and summertime. It would have been nice to have a... More

We had our wedding reception at the Red Door in October this year and asides from the spectacular location at Fahan,the food was first class and the staff were fantastic. Francis,Leanne and Linda had everything planned down to the last detail. Don't bother looking at any other venues for your big day,we can't recommend this place highly enough

Love the red door restaurant but not as keen on the grill night. We booked for a family event recently 10 in total. The starters for those who ordered were good ranging from soup, pear and walnut salad and fishcakes. The mains were okay. My salmon was nothing exceptional nor was the steak one of the party had. Desserts ranged... More

I had a terrific night out here. The décor was superb, gardens amazing. The photographs in the brochure don't do it enough justice. My experience was great and I came away feeling all the better for having been there. Just had drinks. Glass of Wine.
