Good dinners reasonably priced in a family friendly pub / restaurant , slightly off the beaten track so not too busy giving you time to relax and enjoy your meal

I was hesitant to write a review for this visit. I almost did not. I don't like to speak poorly of any place, but I am honest, and I always give a true account of my experience, as other potential customers deserve to be able to decide for themselves based on TripAdvisor community members reviews. I have visited the Sportsman's... More

It looked a little shabby from the car park, we debated if wanted to try it but we did. I am guessing The Sportsman was just opening as it was freezing, although the fire was being made, it felt deserted whilst we drank nice tea and coffee. Service was quick and very friendly. If it had been warmer we would... More

Nice country bar with good food and service. A great stop halfway between Belfast and Dublin just on the Irish Republic side of the border on the A1.

I may have been lucky, I ordered an 8oz steak but got something more like a 12oz. Steak was tender, pan fried, I much prefer chargrilled for flavour though but I could not complain about the portion sizes and also the free peppercorn sauce. Large oval plate with steak and onions and salad and a side bowl of chips. I... More

I travel from Belfast to Dublin regularly. There is only one place I will stop to eat. The Sportsmans is consistantly good. I've just had the best Sirloin Steak ever, depite the fact that they had a bus booked in and lots of local families dining. The Menu has a good selection and the food is always fresh and tasty....

Thank you Susan! We always cater for large parties - usually buses travelling to GAA games or to the races. We make sure that tending to these customers does not upset others. Remember, if your heading North, exit the motorway at Junction 18 (Dundalk North), and heading South exit at Junction 19 (Ravensdale). As we are located on the R132... More
