Description: For intimate dining and sumptuous wines, indulge at the Restaurant Merlot. A delightful mix of European and classical Irish flavors, choose from the exciting table d'hote menu or the sophisticated a la carte menu. Pan fried king scallops, seared fillet of Irish beef and a daily selection of locally sourced fresh seafood are just a few things to tantalize the taste buds. And to complement your choice, we will help you select the perfect wine from our extensive range of display in the cellar.

After our previous experience last year we decided to eat in Restaurant Merlot again. The staff are fantastic, engaging with our grumpy teenagers and encouraging them to exercise their taste buds. I had a delicious goats cheese starter which had two types of cheese and rump of lamb as a main, Perfect. Some of the party had steaks and these were cooked perfectly and had a beautiful flavour. Apparently the Restaurant and the two other hotels hang their own beef which makes the flavour so good.

For a group of 20, the food was just beautiful, and the table service second to none. Service with a smile.

Breakfast each morning was fresh, tasty, good choice, well spread out, can't really complain!

We were shown to our table fast enough each morning.

The service of the hot food was slow each of the three mornings but on arrival quite nice.
We opted away from the rashers & sausage based breakfasts after the first morning as they were very salty but would highly recommend the vegetarian breakfast or the french toast any morning - very tasty.

Recently had a meal for 12 people and most of us were a bit disappointed. Waiter was not very friendly and tended to speak down to us and tried to do everything himself. Food was so so with not much taste and presentation was ok. The biggest problem was the food was luke warm and not hot and my crumble was actually cold. Should have had a bar meal next door in the hotel where the food looked great.
