Whilst on the long drive home from Dublin to Donegal, we were looking for somewhere good to eat after a long day.

The Fiddlers was well recommended and it lived up to the reviews. Tasty food, generous portions and excellent service.

Many places would be wise to visit here to understand what they should be serving to their customers.

If you're passing, pop in, you won't regret it!

Dropped by on Sunday for some lunch. The choice from the carvery was excellent, food was very tasty and portions very generous. Complimentary tea & coffee with table service was a nice extra. Will definitely be back!

Had a few hours in Carrickmacross, and was looking for a lite lunch. Staff was very helpful, as we only wanted a sandwich and salads. They offered to make us any salad or sandwich we wanted. Price was cheap, food was great, service was excellent.
