Visited Ireland in 2013 and spent an evening at The Wild Geese. Told everyone that I'd had the best meal ever, in my life, there . Charming and homey setting. My grown son and I just returned from two weeks there in August 2017 and once again, had the best meal of our lives. Love the family that operates it.

We had dinner here a few days ago and loved it. We were in the middle of a 10 day Ireland trip and ate in some great restaurant but none better than Wild Geese. It was excellent food and a great value. It's a small dining room so you definitely need reservations.

Staff were excellent. The decor is of its period Victorian/Edwardian which we enjoyed. The starter I had was mushroom and thyme soup, could not taste the mushroom, my partner did not partake in a starter. For the main course my partner had a sirloin stake (medium) pepper sauce with the usual trimmings. The stake was tough and required an effort to cut your way trough it. The sauce was bland, the dish had no flavour worth mentioning. The dish lacked seasoning. I had the scallops and pork belly with the usual trimmings. The scallop were great but the pork was overcooked and tough again no seasoning. We wont be back.

Our large group took up a lot of the space in the restaurant and they took lovely care of us. Excellent wine and food. Great location and it has lots of charm. I highly recommend.

Well stop and you might need a reservation! The best food I have had in all Ireland.

The service is amazing and charming. The food is warm, delicious and flavorful! I've been in Ireland a week and this place worth waiting for and finding. Adare is also a gem so this place is in the right spot. Below is what I had for dinner.
