Vast menu, good pleantiful food and excellent service, what more would you need? Would recommend reservving a table as it gets very busy at peak times. Locals eat here at this hotel bistro, which is always a good sign. I can highly recommend this lovely eatery.

We dined in this bistro over the Halloween bank holiday weekend. The menu was extensive with something to suit all tastes. The food was nicely presented and the staff were very friendly. The food is reasonably priced and there is also a 3course menu available for €27 pp. We only had two courses. We couldn't possibly fit anything more as... More

Went here with some friends recently for lunch before we visited the spa for the afternoon. The service was slow, very slow and the food was only ok. Nothing to write home about. All we got was soup and sandwiches and it took over an hour and half from start to finish. In the end we ended up rushing out... More

Went on a recent Saturday to enquire about the leisure centre and popped in here. Red door at front made us unsure if they were open, perhaps a sign might help but once inside it was lovely.

Eileen was a superb server who steered us (no pun intended) to a most delicious steak. Unexpectedly there was a traditional Irish quartet playing in the bar and some guests who were awaiting seating for dinner did a traditional Irish step dance!

This is a very busy place but the service was swift and friendly. More than one attendant came to the table, each had a specific task carried out with courtesy. The food was served on piping hot plates and was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and will definitely return .......Soon

Description
Set in the family-run Fitzgerald's Woodlands House Hotel, Timmy Mac's is an informal and welcoming restaurant offering Irish dining at its most traditional. Cream and green tones add a vibrant touch to the rustic interior, where hearty home-cooked dishes are served next to the crackling open hearth fire. Visitors can choose from our extensive menu, which includes healthy eating options, while enjoying some good old fashioned hospitality. The cottage garden is perfect for laid-back summertime barbecues, with seating in the thatched gazebo or outdoor dining area. Entertainment is courtesy of a buzzy crowd of musicians, storytellers and Irish dancers, as well as the popular thatched games area.
