This Restraunt is well worth a visit. We visited on a Saturday afternoon. Food is excellent with a great choice. Deserts are to die for with a great selection. Staff helpful and courteous. Prices are reasonably. We will be back.

Wanted to try here for a while. Read the reviews and was concerned about the friendliness. Decided to try it anyhow and arrived determined not to let anyone ruin our meal. To ignore any rudeness and get on with appreciating good food. I have to say when we got there the staff were exceptional. Friendly and throughout the evening up... More

The atmosphere is as wonderful as the staff. The duck was the best we have ever had, including restaurants in NYC Everything is fresh and locally sourced. The desserts were out of this world! There is a beautiful outdoor space and charming cottage to wait for your table

If you're looking to visit a restaurant with what must be the most unfriendly service in Ireland, look no further than the While Horses in Ardmore. While the food was good although very expensive, the unfriendly service won out as being the most memorable part of our visit. The staff do not smile, don't check on guests during their meal,...

I love the selection of desserts they offer. The service is top class and there is a great buzz about the place when... More

Came with family and had a table of 8. The mains average at 27-35 euro and starters average at 12-15 euro which is very expensive for a small sea side village like Ardmore. The food was nice enough but not mind blowing and not deserving of such high prices. The house wine was 25 a bottle but was quite nice... More
