    Waited 25mins & had to ask could we get some drinks. Had to ask about our starters 75mins after we ordered. Mains eventually arrived 95mins after ordering. Asked for water it came but got no glasses! Food was poor, haddock was over cooked. Service was extremely poor, no one seemed to know what was going on.

    Everything was great, food was delicious and decent portions. We did get messed around with seating even though we booked a week ahead. There is a small booth which is way too small. I would suggest swapping out the benches for 4 chairs. Other than that we will be back and recommend it

    We had a lovely dinner here on Saturday evening, we arrived early so we could have a few drinks, it wasn't a problem as our table was ready. The staff was pleasant and efficient, our food was tasty and hot. we both had starters and steak mains, which I must say were the nicest steaks we have had in a long time. one thing to note, if you don't like mayo/garlic dressing ask for it not to be on the steak, I personally was very disappointed my lovely steak came out covered in salad leaves and this white garlic dressing drizzled all over it, it wasn't stated on the menu it was coming out like this, and it was a shame to cover up the lovely steak. Other than that it was a lovely dining experience and very good value for money. We will be back.

    If you're looking for great quality food and a service next to none. Cookes is the place to go. I don't normally give reviews unless the business is very bad or very good. But I'd have to recommend Cookes of Carragh.

    Our first time in Cooke’s but definitely won’t be our last! Had a great experience - the staff/owner were all very accommodating and friendly, amazing selection of food on the menu and the atmosphere and service was perfect. Not to mention the value for money - creme brûlée for €7!! For sure some of the best Guinness around. Would 100% recommend for families or groups of friends :)

    Firstly food was excellent as usual but the atmosphere in the restaurant was very unpleasant. Nobody came by the table to check on us. It felt that the staff didn't want to be there. This ruined the dining experience and occasion.

    Service was quite bad, waitress a bit rude when asking for order and when clearing our table had dirty plates from another table in her hand. Also wore her mask down under her nose. Not the usual standard of Cookes. Gentleman who seated us was outstanding and very friendly. Food was only OK. Dessert was amazing. Can't say I'd be in a hurry to return.
