Moycarn food experience

Review of Moycarn Lodge
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 27 Mar 2024
Really nice experience, family of 5, young children. Service was great, very friendly staff, our seating was v comfortable and the whole atmosphere was relaxed. Kids had Easter sheets to colour in which really took their attention from hungry bellies, great idea. Food was delicious and great value for 5 people. Menu had a great variety for both kids and adults.

    We had a fantastic stay at the Moycarn, from the moment we arrived, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the room was gorgeous, the views amazing from the fabulous balcony. The food was excellent, we would highly recommend staying here and will definitely come back.

    We have enjoyed food at this restaurant several times but our recent visit was awful, and i could not recommend it and will never go again.
    Firstly the Vol-au-Vent starters were barely warm, we should have rejected them in hindsight,the pastry was burnt and stale to the point where when touched with cutlery it returned back to flour not flakes.There was chicken in the sauce but we did not notice any bacon which seemed to be substituted with small mushrooms in a dark brown sauce and some strange red and green garnish on top.
    The main course of 24 hour slow cooked beef was more like shin beef which was very dry as though kept in a slow cooker for 2 days and arrived sat on a lump of mashed potato that had been on the plate for a good while as it had gone hard and almost turned back into a potato,the pile was completed with one small frozen Yorkshire pudding like from the supermarket, so a three tiered mound then a bare plate. There was the smallest drizzle of jus with a tiny ramekin dish of what seemed to be frozen vegetables but the worst thing that was served was the garlic gratin which looked prepared 7 days prior and resembled dry shaved parmesan cheese,(we didnt risk eating it).
    The turkey and ham was very similar to the beef, the whole meal was very dry and minimal was just warm enough to eat but did not kill us as im writing this and still here,For €20 per main course it was appalling.The starters at €7 were terrible.
    Our other dishes included a €30 10oz steak that arrived well done when medium was ordered it came with a small bucket of chips and a dreadful looking bit of salad on the side.We also had a very small bowl of soup starter and i mean small.
    All i can say is the owner would be better served by changing the chefs and the design of the plated food ,sometimes it is better to concentrate on the quality and portions of the food and not the presentation in little bowls and neatly designed piles with a little drizzle and bowls. A bad reputation may be spared if you cook your food fresh and dont rely on warming it up after early prepping.
    Thankfully my birthday wasnt spoiled too much as my family made it a great night :-)

    Room tip: Avoid for now until there is a change in chef and food preparation.

    Christmas Dinner with family on the 27th. Table was dirty with dried in soup on it. Took an hour for starters to arrive, took ages for starters to be cleared away and main delivered, 1 main was missing. Took ages for mains to be cleared and then the waitress ordered everyone desert from the set menu even though some people were not in the set menu and wanted a different desert, she then refused to change the order as it had gone through to the kitchen. When desert did arrive there was 1 desert short. Terrible service from the waiting staff..could not remember orders .

    Cant say enough about the Moycarn lodge Hotel. We had a party for my sister in the hotel recently. The staff went above and beyond to help set everything up and make sure she had a wonderful night. Sean in particular was just brilliant, nothing was too much trouble. Decor in the bar/ function rooms so lovely, really cosy. Rooms are lovely, beds very comfy, great shower and food is delicious. Would highly recommend for any small or intimate celebrations 🍾 👌
