Visited O'Gornans for the first time with friends who have been before and had recommended it. The menu has such a variety of different dishes to suit everyone. I had food along with one friend from the thai menu my hubby had steak while our other friend had the fish. Each of us all really enjoyed our meal. We then... More

Use to go here a lot. Food and atmosphere has fallen. Food is average not above any other bar food. Since the change in decor and lay out it's just not the same. A lot more tables and some very close together.

The portion size of the haddock was about the size of 2 fish fingers and about 20 chips, we called the waiter back to complain as it looked like a childs portion, he apoligised and stated the batter cod was a bigger meal, so we went for that....

I recently dined at O'Gorman's Bar and Restaurant in Portlaoise. I was disappointed with the quality of the food. The chicken goujons were battered and very greasy. I felt the same could be said for the garlic mushrooms. On the plus side the service was good and there was plenty of parking next to the restaurant. There were plenty of... More

Live close to this pub and have been a good few time but not going back. Food below average and very expensive for what you get. Staff not friendly. Food very ordinary and you would cook better at home. Much better places to eat in portlaoise.

My wife and I went to O'Gormans for a meal as we were informed by a local that it was good place to eat, and sure enough he was correct. The service and food was brilliant, it is a pity we did not know about it the day before and we would have gone both nights. I would recommend it... More
