visited here with three tempremental fussy children and one fussy husband, have to say the service was amazing from the moment lorraine met us, swiftly seated and the kids were actually spoken to. Menu was well thought out, definitely had difficulty choosing. Really enjoyed our evening here, the staff were amazing, food was fabulous and value for money, I would defiantly recommend for anyone visiting the area. 5 stars for sure.

Quinn's Tea Rooms

"This is a tiny little tea shop, directly opposite the gates of Quin Abbey. The interior is very vintage. The village of Quin is about six miles from the town of Ennis, co. Clare. the tea rooms are right on the main street".

Reviewed By winchester_andy

This was one of those 'do you fancy a cuppa?' moments. We had just finished looking at the Abbey ruins and fancied a cup of tea and something for lunch, so popped across the road for this delightful establishment. Welcomed and shown to seats with a view of the old abbey, tea served in minutes, with a ploughman's lunch and a wrap served a few moments later. The tea was piping hot in a proper china pot, with proper tea cups and saucers - thank you !!The food:Quality = Both Excellent;Quantity = Both Excellent.I've eaten many a ploughman's in my time, but this one ranks amongst the best. Fresh bread and butter, baked ham, superb cheddar cheese with balsamic vinegar or pickle to choose from alongside some very tasty greens AND a slice of warm homemade quiche. Mouthwateringly good. A very comfortable eating house with plenty to choose from. Thoroughly recommended.

I never would have thought you would have the customers for a Soup only restaurant/ coffee shop in Ennis but I was wrong. There’s always a few people here enjoying their healthy tasty soups. From plain vegetable to goulash there’s something for everyone.

Had a good experience here when we visited Ennis. Sat out on the terrace overlooking the river Fergus with our dog and the staff were very good to serve us and to make sure we were not left waiting long even though they were very busy. The food was lovely, i had the pasta bolognaise and my partner had the fish and chips which he said was equally as good.

Husband and I came here slightly hungover wandering the streets of ennis looking for an all day breakfast. We most certainly came to the right spot. It was great. Such a charming place and the staff were very friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. I even watched how they interacted with each other and other customers. Very polite and professional. Will be back

Brogans Bar & Restaurant

Reviewed By movedsouth

Dined on a busy Saturday night and was fortunate to sit next to a great local couple who we talked to all through dinner. Ribs were great as recommended to us by our new local friends. Pub is lively and busy but staff comes by regularly and makes sure you have enough to drink and eat. Enjoyed our dinner.

I visited Cafe Aroma with my daughter recently. She had the full Irish and I had my favourite,Eggs Benedict. The service was excellent, we were seated almost immediately and though it was busy we had our order taken within minutes of being seated. The staff were smiling and friendly, the service was excellent and the food was to die for. Highly recommend Cafe Aroma. Great food, great staff, great vibe.

7 of us dined at Henry's Bistro on Friday 4th. October and all were complimenting with superlatives e.g. best, greatest, finest, succulent, delicious etc. I opted for Scampi and chips and it was outstanding. Rest of the party varied with Beef, Lamb, Scampi ( on my advice). All agreed that that the meals were high on the list of best and outstanding value, for portions, quality food and outstanding service.On our arrival, we were greeted by the wonderful Lisa, who is so knowledgeable, friendly and highly efficient. We were served by a young Lady and Gent, who capped the night with their friendliness, efficiency and great sense of humour. Many thanks Lisa and the Henry's Bistro Family. Incidentally! The place was packed, so booking is essential and casual diners - sadly -had to find alternatives.Hi 791aidanw,Thanks very much for your most recent post, lovely to have everyone back with us again. Thanks for your support.Dermot & all the Team.P.S. Lisa also thanks you very much.
