Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food and service at the dining room are equally fabulous. We spent a fantastic evening here earlier this month, we had a variety of dishes including vegetarian options over 3 courses and all were beautiful. The staff were attentive and good fun, will definitely...be back. So worth a visit!More

Absolutely sublime from start to finish. Without the best food in the county and further. Started with soup which had fresh cream which was divine. Gorgeous steak cooked to perfection. Sticky toffee pudding never tasted as good before. Husband had hake, beautifully cooked. Set menu...at two different price points but you can mix and match and pay a price difference which suited us. Excellent attentive but unobtrusive service. The chef clearly takes pride in his work and really provides excellent thought out food with so many extra steps taken to provide perfect sauces, syrup for sticky toffee pudding etc. We did not detect a single short cut in anything we were served. Gorgeous potatoes. Lovely sorbet plate cleanser. The only suggestion would be a linen/cotton napkin or larger better quality paper one. Other than that simply perfect. Looking forward to returning many times.More

Visiting the West Coast of Ireland for a family event we had a fantastic meal at the Dining Room. We have been on the road for 19 days and this was the best meal of our journey. The menu was excellent offering a variety of...dishes from local ingredients. The wine list was great and the service superb. I had local scallops for starters followed by Achill Island lamb which was cooked to perfection. For dessert I had the best panna cotta I have ever tasted. This is a must do dining experience for your next west coast visit.More

We were visiting the area from Australia and we had the most fabulous meals at Dining Room on a Wednesday night and rebooked for the Saturday night. The staff were very attentive and the food was locally sourced and fresh.

This place is very over priced. Not good for coeliacs, vegetarians or vegans. We gave them notice and all they could produce was a dry piece of celeriac. The waitress who served us was very rude, and when we asked for other options, she told...us rudely the chef had spent half the day preparing one dish for us. And more or less told us to take it or leave it. Poor value for money too. Her rudeness ruined the experience more than the poor food options and lack of quality.More

Allergens not listed on the menu at all. Very limited options for coeliac, dairy free diet. Staff not accommodating and stated they could do something with notice “darling”. Couldn’t offer dairy free potatoes without prior notice. Hardly a big ask. Menu stated home baked bread...which turned out to be sliced pan, warm from defrosting. Very disappointing. Won’t be returning.More

Family of 5, two adults and 3 kids all had fabulous food here. First visit. Staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming. We went for the adult €55 a head option and each dish was fantastic...special mention for the monkfish and scallops though....they were...out on their own. Also, can be very hard to find such amazing food for adults while still catering for children. Children's menu was really lovely, soup or mussels to start, minute steak, fish and chips or a chicken dinner.....and lovely desserts....and very reasonable too. Highly recommend a visit here....a real find.More
