“Very discouraged on first visit”
Reviewed 12 September 2013

My family and I had just arrived in Ireland from the USA for the first time and decided to have our first dinner at a pub. We were staying in Headway in a cottage by the water and it was lovely. We loved the decor of the pub, very traditional. The fire was going in the fire place and we sat in the booth right beside it. It was me my husband my daughter and her baby son and his daddy. We were so excited for our first outing and dinner. The waitress came and we were also so excited to converse with our first person in Ireland. She was not friendly at all, she took our order and brought our food and did not greet us in anyway.and did not return at all during our dinner. I was so discouraged as to why we even came to Ireland and was so scared the rest of our trip was going to be the same way. On our way out the owner of the place was so nice and friendly and that lifted my spirits some. This was last October 2012

Please note that our review only concerns the restaurant.
We had dinner there on August 12, 2013.

We ordered smoked salmon as a starter, then fish and chips. The food was good, and service pleasant. The total (including a pint of beer and a glass of wine) was 43 EUR.

Perhaps the local was a little too dark, more like a pub, but all in all we were satisfied.

Stayed two night and enjoyed the experience. Excellent staff and great breakfast food and bar food as the restaurant was not open. Great value for money and an ideal centre to explore the beautiful countryside.

My husband & I stopped off here on our way home from Galway for some food. I chose here as we used always stop on our way home from Kerry as a child with our parents.

What a feast we had - every single morsel was piping hot, exquisite in taste & best of all thoroughly homemade!

A special mention to the 3 members of staff (who's names I unfortunately didn't get) but they were friendly & efficient from start to finish.

I couldn't believe how reasonable our bill was (under €50) for 2 starters, main courses, 2 pints of minerals, a dessert & a coffee!

Delighted I stopped here again - it reminded me why my dad loved it so much. Well done to all concerned - we'll b back

Stopped here recently for breakfast------ fruit, fruit juice, cereal and two of everything on the plate, golden slices of toast not pale coloured bread. Pleasant staff and efficient service. A mans breakfast at value that is hard to beat, all for just 7.50E. Highly recommended, I will definitely be returning.

Did a one night stay here and it was fine, plenty of car parking practically up to the front door and a very warm welcome.

The room was spacious with a large bathroom with over bath shower, plenty of pristinely clean towels, lots of storage space.

Breakfast was served to your table, a big plus in my book, it was piping hot and very well served by the extremely pleasant Stephanie, would definitely recommend here for a stay if you are in the area.

On a search for family connections, we stopped here for coffee and directions. Stella and her son gave us helpful information and a bit of history about Headford. Highly recommend this lovely place which has been here since 1905!
