Dined here last night and what an evening. From the warm greeting from Francis to the superb bar staff we instantly felt as home. The place is ready for Christmas with their superb decorations and warm roaring fires you instantly felt at home. I had my Espresso Martinis again top notch. It was busy considering it was a Saturday in... 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.

Was best man at my friend's wedding at The Red Door in July. Had the most amazing day and I highly recommend the venue not only for a wedding, but also as a cracking restaurant and bar.

The Red Door, and all its staff, is a class act! My husband and I got married here in August this year and there's nowhere else that compares! The location is perfection - and somehow the food matches up! It's so unusual to get a venue in a beautiful location that can stand on its own merits without the views!... More

I visited for high tea and what a disappointment I was expecting a selection of dainty sandwiches which is normally served in establishments that I have previously visited, instead I got a wheaten roll filled with egg and onion, a spicy chicken wrapped halved and a myriad of pastries which are available to buy anywhere. The scones were very good... More
