After 2 weeks of pub grub and the like, we were excited to enjoy
Galleghers food. They had John Dory fish- one of my favorite fish. From the apps to the desserts- quality foods with great flavor. My daughter enjoyed the garnish that added even more flavor to her yummy steak!!

Hi Tami! Thanks for the lovely review. I'm glad ye enjoyed the visit. I hope ye had a safe journey home to the States. We only won best Restaurant in Clare 2014 last week so it's ironic that your review came in around the same time! We're delighted ye enjoyed the meal and hopefully ye can come back again someday in the future.

Really enjoyed this meal. We turned up on spec and were shown into the bar area initially. The barman took our drink orders and when I ordered a glass of wine asked if we were having a bottle of wine with our meal. When I said yes, he suggested we open it now instead. He joked with our kids and made them very comfortable. We had the special menu which was only €65 for the two of us including the wine. It was a reduced version of the full menu but still left us plenty of choice. The food and the atmosphere was wonderful. Every course stood out. Kids were delighted with their meals too, but shared our desserts as they were so full. A great night out.

Hi! Thanks so much for the great review. We really the time you have taken out to leave us some feedback. I'm delighted you both enjoyed our restaurant so much. I gather ye had our Wine & Dine offer which is €65 per couple. Its probably our most common menu in Gallagher's and we recently changed it so hopefully it's even more popular now! All our staff are trained to give quality service while interacting with customers in a friendly manner. Once again, thanks for the review and make sure to call in again soon!

Had a beautiful lunch here last weekend on the way back from Kinsale - the sun was shining and we got a lovely table outside the cottage part of the restaurant. The food was brilliant and I had a wonderful open-foccacia bread sandwich filled with mozzarella cheese, ripe tomatoes, topped off with pesto and a huge side salad, with sun dried tomatoes and they even threw in a few olives for good measure. My husband had the soup of the day and they gave us extra sides of bread at no extra charge, which was a lovely touch. Our waiter was a lovely guy who chatted with us and could not have been more helpful, bringing us whatever we needed to enjoy our lunch - would loved to have had dinner there with a glass of wine as it was a lovely ambience, and fantastic to see in those pinched times that there are still great value places like this where nothing is too much trouble and people, despite being pressurised by work, still have the time to smile and appreciate your custom. Well done and we will have lunch there everytime we are passing. Many thanks for your great hospitality and wonderful food.

Hi Rita, thanks for the lovely review. I'm so happy ye enjoyed the visit so much! I can tell by your review title of 'old world charm' that you understand what exactly we offer in Gallaghers in terms of atmosphere and ambiance. Make sure to call again someday when you are passing and try something else from our menu or even call next door to our sister restaurant, JP Clarke's! Thanks again for the review.

Stopped over for a meal on a friends recommendation and they could not have recommended better. Superb atmosphere, great helpful staff prepared to go the extra mile. Food and menu were brilliant catered to everyone. Just to mention the meal was had in J.P. Clarkes which also trades under gallaghers even though this is the less informal venue that serves food all day. Definitely recommended and very highly.
