Delicious, fresh food, yummy baked goods and a friendly staff make this restaurant completely worth the short drive off the motorway to check out the town.

We stayed here at the weekend, hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still within a short driving distance to all the west has to offer...the food was delicious great menu and dessert to die for...the staff were so friendly and very professional..the lodge is a new part of the barracks the room was very stylish and fresh...loved the little tray of fresh cakes on the side locker...we will definitely go back..

While staying with friends in Athenry we went to The Barracks for Sunday breakfast. We knew it would be good as soon as we walked in and saw the amazing cakes on offer. It was very busy with a lively atmosphere and we were seated in a lovely room overlooking the street. The menu was excellent and all the food was of the highest quality, as was the service. It definitely exceeded our expectations and next time we're in Athenry we'll visit again to try the lunchtime and evening meals. A great start to our holiday!

The Old Barracks catered our son's christening last weekend. It was fantastic. The service and food were both great and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking to cater an event. The staff were a pleasure to deal with, very accommodating and helpful with recommendations. We ordered the Thai chicken curry which was lovely (not too spicy at all, my nieces who don't mind a little spice loved it) and the beef and Guinness stew which was sooooo good; people were asking for spoons to get all the gravy off the plate, it was delicious. We also ordered a meat platter which went down a treat too. I'll definitely be ordering again, a pleasure to deal with start to finish.
