It was great to be back out eating in The Esquire again. Great to see the place so busy and everyone enjoying their meals. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal, can’t wait to go back again soon. Potato skins and the seafood chowder, absolutely delicious. Highly recommend.

I've been coming back to The Raglan Road (formerly The Esquire) Tramore for years and it never fails to disappoint. The food has always been fantastic, my favourites are the potato skins, sirloin steak and the apple pie, oh and I can't forget the Lobster...platter! While they've kept their best sellers The Raglan Road always provided a range of choices to suit everybody. The establishment itself is full of Irish charm and warmth, you could literally spend a whole day discovering all it's nooks and crannys. I have always felt so welcomed here and it's the reason I come back time and time again. Now more than ever I am so happy I can support one of my local businessesMore

A great bar and restaurant with excellent food and staff. Paul is an amazing chef and the food always tastes great. The potato skins are a must and if you like a good steak, Raglan Road provides that. Always a warm welcome every time I...go.More

Thanks so much to Paul, Celine, Bobby, Michelle and all the amazing staff at the Esquire / Raglan Road for their outstanding hospitality and unbelievable service to the community over COVID and beyond. Paul, your food is undeniable fantastic quality with huge selection of specials...that are always so fresh and change on a daily basis. Your take away menu was a blessing during COVID and the prices were a real sign how much you appreciated local business; I never saw value like it. I am so thrilled that you’re back open and we can sit in such style and comfort and enjoy your hospitality in beautiful surroundings. Felt very safe and assured with all the social distance restrictions, staff very highly trained and super organised which made the visit hassle free. Thanks so much for all you do, All the best, The Treacy FamilyMore

We recently stayed on family holiday in tramore. We visited Raglan road for a family evening meal. The atmosphere, staff & food was extremely of high standard. The owner Paul welcomed us & made us feel very much at home. As a result we ate...there several times during our stay. It is very hard to pick a favourite dish but I would highly recommend stir fry, seafood chowder, sea food platter & fillet steak to name but a few. I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant & can’t wait for our return. Well done again to all 💯👏More
