The best dessert EVAH! Sticky toffee pudding cake. Must have! Also had the Confit of Duck. I don't even like dark bird meat, but this was fantastic! Highly recommend.

We were lucky enough to drop in for an early bird menu on a whim. Everything was beautiful from start to finish, well presented, staff were friendly and welcoming. Sticky toffee pudding was so light and tasty. Only wish there was a restaurant like this in Galway. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to Limerick.

What a beatiful little restaurant. I wish I had my phone with me so I could add a photo. Lovely thatched cottage with the eponymous blue door. Lovely food, really fresh and inventively served. Nice varied menu. Friendly service. Really busy with a lovely vibe. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, great food. Adare is gorgeous... More

The restaurant is in a historic thatched roof building. Seating is limited so be sure to reserve your table. Does provide ambiance as the restaurant is warm and inviting. This place is probably my favourite restaurant for Fillet steak. It is served on slate plate and generously proportioned. Owner and staff are friendly. Serviced is fast yet you feel as... More

We got in late but early enough to place our order. We needed a GF meal and the kitchen made some changes so that my colleague could eat what she was craving for! We knew we could stay while the kitchen cleaned up and would be their last patrons but didn't realize that our server and 2 other staff were... More

We visited over Christmas 2016. The food was delicious and the quality was amazing. The service was top notch. The staff were open to accommodating changes for one of our party with an allergy. The atmosphere is very cozy and we will definitely be back

Visited with friends for dinner on a Friday evening. We all dined from the set menu and there was a good choice, 5 starters, 6 mains and 4 desserts. I had rib eye steak and it was excellent. The presentation of all the dishes was very good and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Nice selection of art for sale... More

I visited The Blue Door for a business dinner whilst in Adare. Service was friendly and efficient, quality of food is very good, we had salmon & sirloin steak, both cooked perfectly, with generous sides. There was a decent wine selection, the Chablis was very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area, and suggest that... More

While staying in Adare, my wife and I chose one night to visit the Blue Door. Alas, they were full and wouldn't have a table for one hour. As we ambled down the street wondering where to go next, the maître d' came running up behind us and said, " I have a table now. A couple has just left!... More
