This is our absolute favourite and go-to when we want a nice dinner out or have family to stay. Everything i have had on their menu is fabulous! Goats cheese spring rolls as a starter are to die for, as well as the burgers, sweet...potato fries and my Dad keeps talking about their caramelised onion flatbread thing. A nice selection of drinks too. Pre-covid, it was lovely to go into the pub part and listen to live music, hopefully one day that will be back! Post-covid we have been twice and still fantastic.More

We dined here early evening, by the time we were leaving it was full. A need to book ahead is essential. Menu not the same as before but good enough for choice only one exception though .. Would like to see more variety for GF...options even on this restricted menu. Mussels was the only GF option for a starter on our evening. Even at that all was fine and look forward to returning. 5 star rating as usual.More

We have not been to the limekiln since covid 19 began, I would give the restaurant and staff full marks for attention to detail, social distancing, wearing masks, one way system, detailed cleaning of tables chairs even menus. The meals were excellent and value for...money, if you are a Guiness drinker the pint has improved and its good. We will be back very soon.More

Arrived at the Lime Kiln convinced it was the restaurant my wife booked earlier in the week only to learn it was someplace 25km away. Jim from Duleek cabs saved the day obviously knew the owner who was able to accomadate all 9 of us....What a stroke of luck, the Staff could not have been nicer, the food was great and the 2 pints I had were top notch. Highly recommended great menu, chicken wings to die for!More

I was just in the Limekiln for lunch with family members. They were delighted with their meal and it was great value. However my vegetarian chilli arrived tepid so I sent it back to reheat. I waited 10 minutes for it to arrive back and...it was truly bland, underseasoned and tasteless. Vegetarian option was very small but priced the same as a well filled plate of meat and veg. This was my third time coming and each time I have been disappointed. Please try to make vegetarian food taste better...More
