Loved this bar! Live music was authentic Irish. Good spirits. Food was tastey. A nice alternative to the fancier restaurant.

Amazing restaurant and food -- as well as wine however the only constructive criticism is to get rid of the upcharges on the price-fix menu. We decided to go a-la-carte because what we ordered didn't have a surcharge and it made more sense. That said, the food was exceptional and the service was amazing, catering to our well-traveled daughter who... More

Not sure why this place had only reviews from 2015. We came here for dinner during our stay at the castle. The Cedars restaurant didn't have kid's menu or a TV for us to watch the Euro games. The food was good, especially the pan fried trout. Very very good. Not the best food, so 4 star, but I deducted... More

Stayed at the hotel and ended up eating in the bar. The food was good and so was the service. Limited menu but what they have is fresh and tasty. I would go back.

We arrived late in the day and were pleased to be able to eat in this area of the hotel. You can choose where to eat (there are several great rooms ), and the staff will accommodate your eating arrangements. We had the steak sandwich tasty and not too large. A gin and tonic and a restful night

This is an excellent pub in Lough Eske Castle. The pub menu and the afternoon "high tea" were both very good as was the homemade potato soup. Lough Eske Castle has a very nice restaurant also. The service was great throughout the hotel and the Irish staff was warm and friendly with a great sense of humor. A really nice... More

Liked the Lamb Stew and the fish. Warmly recommended. Also the seafood chowder and the mushrooms soups were lovely. Cozy place and was not noisy at all.
