Great Guinness and Blue Moon, and it's massive on the inside with numerous distinct sections. There's The Nest, Old Man bar, Main Bar, restaurant and more, decked out in clashing OTT decorations like palm trees, equestrian paintings and speakeasies touches – but that random element adds...to the charm! Food is OK – nothing special – and the service is excellent. It's also got a good take-out next door called Grape & Grain, and serves a massive neighbourhood (deliveries, too!), so I raise a glass to their continued success.More

I am a regular visitor to The Leopardstown Inn for my lunchtime carvery and have missed this due to the circumstances that have prevailed this year so upon its reopening I decided to pay a visit today to sample their carvery lunch once more. To...say I was impressed would indeed be an understatement. The quality of the roast beef and all that accompanied it was superb. The presentation of the piping hot food and indeed quantity served in a warm, beautiful seasonal surrounding indeed added to the occasion. I was greeted by both Amanda, Monica and served by Liam who individually helped make my lunch time experience even more enjoyable with their professional and friendly service. Well done to all and shall be returning soon.More

Ordered a vegetarain salad, came with with two slices of spanish ham underneath a fairly basic and meagre salad. Ordered a side of fries which were forgotten about. Food wasn't great, friendly service. Wouldn't be rushing back.

Recently made a trip to the Lep inn with some friends for some food and a few drinks. We didn’t have a booking but staff went out of there way to find us a table. We thought it would be a nuisance not being able...to go to the bar to order a drink but staff were very attentive throughout our time there and we were never struggling to get a drink. Food was great, I had the scampi which I must say was delightful and the rest of the group had the burger, I’ll have to try that next time. All in all we had a very pleasant time here and will definitely return. All credit to the staff who had smiles on there faces throughout the day.More

I am a regular visitor to The Leopardstown Inn for the carvery lunch and decided to give it a try recently upon reopening. I found it to be most satisfying from the moment I booked my table to my departure. I found Monica who I...spoke to on the phone most obliging and when i arrived was greeted in an extremely friendly and courteous manner and was allocated a perfect table allowing me to watch sports on TV which was a late request. The quality of food was second to none as indeed was the professional service and hospitality afforded to me on the day. Well done to all is these challenging times and I will be returning very soon and spreading the word.More

Hi Eamon M, We are about 15 minutes of a walk from the racecourse, in normal traffic it will take less than 5 minutes drive but on race days it can be 15-20 minutes of a drive. Many thanks, Caroline, Leopardstown Inn
