Looking for a bite to eat or a drink by the river? This is the place to be. Beautiful scenery. Lovely cocktails. The boat cruise departs right beside Flanagan's. Staff very polite. Would defiantly return

Flanagans has a nice pizza menu with lovely fresh pizza made right in front of you. Its a busy spot located just a few metres from the lake. There is also a more mainstream menu which we did not try. Nice lively atmosphere here.

We ate our last dinner in Ireland here! We had window seats on the river. Very friendly staff. Very helpful in identifying what was gluten free. Everyone loved their meal!!! The decor in the restaurant was also fun to look at!

plenty of parking available- street parking plentiful and free; carpark on other side of bridge and another on this side; Weekday parking not usually a problem at all- parking generally gets much scarcer on weekends... More
