“Good memories are made of this....”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

Just back from an overnight visit here - our second - first was 2 years + ago when he popped the question! It's a lovely old post office building with 2 conservatory type extensions which are very tastefully done and make for a pleasant bright interior. Had excellent dinners on both occasions but obviously only remember the recent one in great detail! Would espeically recommend the slow roast pork belly mains which my husband had - it was divine! Also breakfast was very good with many choices from cereals, porridge (lovely & creamy) fresh fruit, yogurts, scones, bread & toast selection, full Irish, various egg options etc and lots of everything. Bedrooms are v comfortable withy very comfy king size beds, good cotton sheets and duvets and LCD tv and good power showers in bathtubs. Also found staff pleasant and courteous. Would recommend and will be back again!

Room Tip: Both rooms we stayed in we're nice and very similiar. Think there's only 5 or 6 total so am...

I'm a little surprised at all the 5 star reviews for the Olde Post. It’s good enough, but it’s not excellent - my monk fish might be the worst piece of fish I've ever eaten. Having said that, the other diners round the table were pleased with their meals so it might just have been a poor fish rather than poor cooking. Service was adequate and pleasant , but relaxed/slow and the staff were inexperienced. The setting is nice enough but if you're sat in the wrong place you get to see the locals driving their cars very fast up and down the car park! All in all a reluctant 4 stars from me because other people's food was good rather than because mine was.

The best wedding venue I've ever been to - beautiful, homely, comfortable surroundings - FANTASTIC food, brilliant staff, excellent accommodation & breakfast. We had the best day ever. Always loved the Olde Post Inn anyway, never fails to deliver on top quality friendly service. Highly recommend it for any occasion. Definitely due another visit there very soon.

We stayed here for a family celebration and it I couldn't recommend it more! The staff were so helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! The dinner and breakfast were absolutely gorgeous and we will definitely be back!

On Easter Sunday to celebrate my birthday my daughter and her boyfiend took me to the Olde Post and from start to finish it was a wonderful eperience from friendly, efficient managment and staff to fine dining. Attention to detail was perfect and they surpised me with my name written in choclate on my dessert to the staff singing "Happy Birthday" I would highly recommend the Olde Post to anyone who would like to experience feeling that your visit makes a difference.

My husband & I stayed one night here while touring around Ireland. We had a wonderful stay and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Our room was large and the bed was very comfortable. We invited family to join us for dinner that night and had an excellent experience. The staff were extreme helpful especially with the two children in our party. The food was exceptional and the wine was good too. They even gave us mince pies with our coffee. We left the table completed stuffed but happy. Breakfast the next morning was one of the best we had the entire trip. Everything homemade and really tasty. The black and white pudding was to die for. If you don't really like black and white pudding you should this stuff. The overal deco is very warm and cosy and everything is spotless. Could recommend it enough.

This place is such a gem, the atmosphere and the food really cannot be faulted. The presentation of the food is spectacular, the veg and potatoes come in copper pots which is a nice touch. I have eaten here about 5 times and always look foward to going back, it is indeed very pricey so more of a special occassion venue for a night time meal but it is so worth it. The wine list is excellent too and since the bar/waiting area has been refurbished it is even nice inside. Worth going out of your way to visit this place, we drive around 50 miles to visit here!
