“Nice quiet place”
Review of The Dungeon

The Dungeon
Ranked #1 of 1 Restaurants in Lahardaun
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$17 - US$63
Description: As its name would suggest, the unique setting located on the lower ground floor of the castle invites diners to enjoy a range of satisfying dishes from the bistro-style menu with a focus on traditional Irish cuisine beneath the historic curved stone ceiling. Together with a relaxed ambience, it makes for a wonderful and memorable dining experience.

Quaint little restaurant in the downstairs of the Ashford Castle. The filet was done as requested and had a great flavor and very tender. The cod dinner was very delicious as was the lamb dinner. The service was attentive but not overwhelming. The pricing was as expected. It is not a big place. Reservations are required/recommended.

Provides much less formal dining surroundings but the food is also brillaint. Ideal for familes with kids offering an atmospheric context for a memorable meal. Forgot to mention another of the details that makes Ashford Castle so special, the evening entertainment. Brendan the pianist is mellifluous and gentle and takes you staright back to your childhood with some brilliant songs and tunes. Hes also a musical encyclopaedia! Second night we were treated to a rat pack crooner who not only did an awesome job but got us up dancing! just brilliant.

My husband & I visited this restaurant this evening as part of our two night mini break to Ashford Castle. Extensive wine list & a sufficient cocktail menu were presented to us upon being seated. The Long Island iced teas were delicious as was the bottle of Rioja my husband ordered. We ordered our starters which were lovely but unfortunately the chateaubriand ordered for our main arrived medium rare instead of medium and unfortunately put us off our main course but overall the professionalism and courteous staff made the situation better. We both look forward to trying this restaurant again at some point. Special thank you to the male member of staff who gave us a tour of the wine cellar.

We enjoyed a great meal in the Dungeon. Great atmosphere, nicest dungeon I have ever seen! :) The food was delicious, though some of the starters were really, really small. Staff was friendly.

The food here was excellent. This is a great place for dinner if you are looking for a less formal experience than in the dining room. The service here, as with the rest of the castle, was fantastic.
