Whether you choose the main restaurant or causal eating section in the back bar, this restaurant is first class.

The service staff are extremely attentive and the food is delicious.

Just be sure to book as it's always very busy!

Rang on the last minute and was lucky enough to get a table. I am so pleased we did as the whole experience was good. We were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. The food was perfect. Steak done as requested and fish was excellent. Would highly recommend The Ballymore Inn.

We come here regularly as the food is superb. They also have a wide variety of vegan meals with is highly appreciated.
The staff is very attentive, the food is served quickly and it is always a pleasure either going to the restaurant or the bar.

Popped in for some food after a walk at nearby Blessington Lakes. Met by very pleasant waiting staff. Menu had plenty of choice. We ordered Falafels and the Fish & Chips. Both very nice. Portion of tasty bread delivered to the table prior to food arriving. Would definitely return.

If I was the head chef here id be mad. Food is lovelybut service lets the experience down. Having visited before (and left a 5* review) we were looking forward to our meal. Heres a quick synopsis of the service this Sunday
*minimum of 8 floor staff on, taking in great views of the ceiling or floors, not looking at or for customers
* no managment or senior member of a team visible to guide or direct these junior team members
*Minimum of five minute delay for everything. Order, order a drink, spoon for childs meal, dessert menus
*check back took place on our mains before two of the party had even tried their food

Now on to food, it was very good, it is pricey but tasty. One fault was the steak which while tasty was only warm as (looking at the service) id say was left over the heating lamp too long.

Sorry guys, I can cook tasty food at home, if I come to a place that charges your prices, service ahould follow.

Either train your junior team members with a managment overview or hire trained staff members. You go for quality over quantity with your food, should do the same with your front of house. Bitterly disappointed with this experience and will be slow to return
