The Preacher's Pub at Temple Gate Hotel is one of our favorite places for food, drink and social gatherings. As Americans who live on the west coast of Ireland we love this pub. We are never disappointed in the foods served. Today we had schnitzel - it is one of the best schnitzel meals I have had anywhere including my... More

This is very neat bar converted from a beautiful church. Excellent ambiance with a lot of old world wood structural components. Service was slow and prices were a little high.

I found this to be more than just a public house. I enjoyed the historical and architectural aspects as well. It's good for a full meal or just a cup of soup. Great menu and nice staff. Thank you.

I had a toasted ham, cheese, onion and tomato sandwich in Preachers Pub and it was lovely. We were served by Rae who was very friendly and efficient. A very nice experience.

We were staying in the Temple Gate Hotel. We were suffering from jet lag and wanting to find a restaurant close to the hotel. What a terrific decision to eat our first meal in Ireland here. We had to try the fish n chips since we were in Ireland. I can honestly say they were the best I have ever... More

Nice atmosphere, but could lower the lights a bit. The traditional music group that played the night we were there were very enjoyable.

I love this old church setting. Food is not high cuisine but neither is the price. Just off the main square tables are usually available and food is served promptly. Lovely trad music from a talented quartet the last evening I dined here. Prices are very good. Enjoy
