Went here for dinner and a few drinks. Food was lovely and service was even better. Have to comment on Keith and Cathal two of the best barmen you could find. Can't wait to go back

Visited the Glen Tavern with my family. Great experience from the minute we came in. With covid restrictions we felt at ease with social distancing. The staff were very attentive and were clearly trained on the guidelines. Food was excellent. We had cod and the...burger and left nothing on the plate. Kids were well looked after also. Would highly recommend a visit when in Limerick!More

Had a great time sharing stories with Toby. You need a new Hulk Hogan! Both the Irish Stew and Cottage Pie were great.

A very comfortable tavern. We came on a cold, windy day. I had a delicious beef soup, my friend had a seafood chowder, both were excellent. Lunch was shepherd's pie, tasted great and was such a hearty meal. A Guiness to wash it all down...made the afternoon perfect despite the weather. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend stepping in here for a bite and a drink.More
