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.

Returned here when it reopened we were met by the friendly staff all wearing face masks. We were shown to our table and presented with our menus and also told of the daily specials.There was a good selection to choose from. The food was top class as usual.We had a very enjoyable meal . This family run Bistro is ideally placed between Tipperary Town and Cashel with its own free car park.I would advise to book well in advance because of limited tables available.

A work colleague recommended this restaurant to me so we decided to go after work on a Friday evening. I travelled from Limerick to just outside the lovely village of Golden. On arrival our covid certs were scanned and we were shown to our table. All tables were socially distant and nicely laid out. The menu was a delight to read making a choice was a challenge. The scallops with pork crackling had for starter were delightful and the presentation was a work if art in itself. The main course l chose was the beef. The waiter assured me it was local and would be amazing. He was right. The juiciest tenderness portion served with gravy and beef croquette,potatoes and vegetables joy to behold and devour. The portions were very generous. My friends choices were equally impressive. We could not manage a dessert each so on the waiters advice we shared a lemon tart that was a perfect finish to the meal. Excellent coffee completed our culinary adventures. I would have no hesitation in recommending O'Neil Bistro. It was definitely worth the trip to Tipp.

This restaurant never fails to deliver. We had a Sunday meal of 2 courses for 25 euro each which is great value and every bit of our meal was excellent and brimming with flavours. The staff are very pleasant/chatty and efficient. It is easy to see why O Neills gets a lot of repeat visits and we will certainly be back.

I ate there last week with my inlaws and while the food was lovely the service was awful and left me incredibly intimidated and uncomfortable. On arrival at 1pm I was informed that my booking was only for 1hr 45 mins. I was not told this when making my booking and it was not in my confirmation email either. We were all out for a nice lunch so this was a bit disappointing as I knew I would now spend it watching the clock. I mentioned this to the girl but was met with, 'that's always the way here' response. We proceeded to have our lunch and at 2.30 while the deserts were being dished out the girl told me very sternly 'you need to keep to your alloted time'. This was completely unnecessary, as I had being monitoring the time myself and had ensured we ordered quickly and didn't delay. I even told my 2 kids to eat up fast as we couldn't delay with the meal! However the service was quite slow in delivering the food to our table which didn't help. Then at 2.44pm exactly a gent abruptly dropped the bill to the table saying 'Your time for this table is up!' This was extremely embarrassing as we had not delayed and were just about to leave ourselves. I might add that no one had arrived and was waiting for our table. The meal cost €250 so it's not like it's a cheap eatery, it's marketed as fine dining but my experience was far from that it was extremely disappointing and I will not be returning.

Last week we had another great meal at O'Neill's. They never fail. It was our 50th Wedding Anniversary and we had 13 family members helping us celebrate. We immediately chose O'Neill's to have our Anniversary dinner. This is a great restaurant with great people. We've been eating there for years and they never fail to present beautiful and delicious meals. I think it is one of the finest restaurants in all of Ireland. Thank you Kenny and Trish.

It's been over a year since my last visit so by gosh was I looking forward to it. We started with the goats cheese bonbons and the pork pot pie. Bonbons were absolutely perfectly crispy on the outside and melty in the middle. The pork was immaculately presented, my companion said it was the best morsel of food he ever tasted! Having salivated for a week at the the thought of their amazing featherblade of beef, we took a last minute swerve and ordered the duck and the chicken. Every morsel was more delectable than the last and my god the duck croquettes...I'd love a bucket of them! The potato gratin served with it was probably the best ive ever tasted. Both dishes were hoovered. For dessert we had the mango panacotta and sticky toffee pudding. My companion battled bravely to finish the pudding which was served with a gorgeous caramel ice cream, but had to concede defeat or be forklifted from the table...word to the wise, when your server offers a twenty minute break before dessert, take it! I on the other hand in a valiant, heroic display of eating linked the panacotta bowl clean. It was incredible. I won't leave it so long the next time, but I will probably wear my fat pants! Thanks so much for an exceptional night...if there were ten stars I'd give them. Staff are also fabulous and friendly, service is excellent.

This place is producing top quality food at amazing value for years and deserves all the support and recognition for maintaining standards in a small rural location. The menu has something for everyone and every dish is presented delightfully with quality ingredients and flavour. Kenny and his team are always tweaking the menu and also have seasonal specials. I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough for quality presentation value and service. Treat yourself, you won’t be disappointed 😋

What a fantastic restaurant. We had Sunday lunch and it was absolutely amazing. The seafood tagliatelle was delicious, beef was the best we ever tasted and the baked yogurt for dessert was outstanding. I would give this meal 5 stars and a real culinary experienceOur waiter was a lovely young fella who provided excellent service.Only for we live 4 hours away we would eat here every week. Will definitely return on our next visit to Cashel and would highly recommend.

My wife were there last night for our anniversery and the meal was divine. I had the duck liver pate while my wife has the scallops to start. They were scrumptious with the extras and sauces on the side. My fillet of beef was cooked to perfection, served with Pulled Pork stakelet, spinach and Broccoli spears. I'd forgotten how good the food is there.

We visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch and highly recommend it.We travelled quite a distance, having failed to get a table on the Saturday evening when we were in the vicinity, so we booked for Sunday lunch instead.What a gem! The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and pleasant.Nothing is too much hassle for them.A large party arrived shortly after we had and they were also attended to with great care, high chair for the toddler, etc. We had an amazing meal.The seafood risotto was just perfect, my husband thoroughly enjoyed the pork belly while I really loved the hake.We may have a journey to travel here but it is so well worth it for the quality of food served.Thanks to the wonderful chefs and to all who ensure that its customers are well looked after.This restaurant deserves its excellent reputation.You will not leave disappointed .

Last night we had an occasion to celebrate a family member's 40th birthday at O'Neill's. We haven't been in a few years due to Covid among other things. Everything about it was wonderful, on arriving we were made feel so welcome. Unfortunately I didn't get our waiter's name but he is a proud Tipp man studying to become a teacher & his service was exceptional....nothing was too much trouble to him & his sense of humour was fantastic. Menu was really good with an excellent choice, I opted for chicken for mains & it was delicious. Wine was lovely & Desserts were freshly prepared & beautifully presented. We took our own cake & this was not an issue. Highly recommend O'Neill's, lovely to celebrate an occasion or enjoy a nice meal at any time.
