Am a regular client of the Old Bank House. Mainly eat there during the day, have eaten once from the Tapas menu at night.

As the name suggests the building once housed a Bank, I think it may have once been the Bank Managers residence. It is everything you would expect of a period building big rooms, high celings and decorated very nicely.

Nice selection of cooked breakfasts reasonably priced, a full Irish around €8. Very good selection of sandwiches, wraps a paninis priced between €5 to €7 - any I have sampled have been very good. Meals in the region of €10.00 and good portions.

Tapas menu at night plates between €5 and €7.50. A large paella, more than enough for two, at €20.00. Beers a little pricey I think around €6 for a large one. Couple of ordinary dishes also on the evening menu Steak and chips etc.

Service is very friendly but can be a little forgetful at times, but the friendliness more than makes up for it. Selection of deserts are kept in the entrance which some people may find not the most hygienic.

Good place to go during the day for tea/coffee and a nice treat. Overall I think the place has a lot going for it and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
