    We were exceptionally surprised by the level of service and quality of the food. The decor is very much relaxing. You would be quite happy to be here on your own and not feel as if you are out of place.

    We were one of very few diners for a brunch lunch on Christmas Eve day but the atmosphere was festive warm and welcoming. We had the beetroot starter and chicken wings both good. Then the beef which was delicious and prawns with marinated salmon also good. A perfect brunch choice.

    So disappointing. The menu did not match the menu online, nor did it match the menu on display outside the front door so the dishes we wanted to order were not available to us. The second disappointment was the fact that we were the only diners in the restaurant. When I booked on the website the only vacancies available to us were, I think, 5.15, 6.30, 8.30 and 8.45. Yet when we arrive there was nobody dining. It was like a morgue.

    We were on a package with the hotel and dinner was included otherwise there is absolutely no way I would have paid €50 each for a very tasteless inadequate meal. My supposedly crispy duck starter was neither crispy or tasty and we both had turkey and ham which was utterly disappointing. Meat slices too thick, tiny bit of mash and 4 brussel sprouts. Dessert only just saved the meal, crumble was nice.

    Beautiful place and good quality food. The only complaint I have is that the portions where tiny and my family were hungry after paying 20 euros per main dish. The waitress also took some of our plates away before everyone was finished which is unsettling. They should wait until everyone is finished.

    I understand it was peak time and a busy Sunday, but service was very slow, had to ask a few times for sauces, water, no toast. Simple things. Food quality was OK, but for a good hotel standard was disappointing.

    The biggest issue was with the service. We had to ask several times for the same things. The service was incredibly slow. I waited so long for a coffee after our meal, I ended up cancelling it. They hadn’t even started making it at that stage.

    As usual, the Hardiman did not disappoint! Between aperitifs in the Oyster Bar served by chatty and humorous staff to the delicious lunch in Gaslight Brasserie! The group lunch was superb and since it was a graduation celebration, the welcome glass of Prosecco for the graduate was a lovely gesture!! A small point and only because the person himself is an avid fan, but the pint of Guinness could have been better ….no froth on the inside of glass for one!! Knowing the Hardiman, they will take this on board as constructive criticism and aim for perfection!😋

    On arrival we were told that the Gaslight Brasserie does not open during the week and we were moved to the Oyster Bar at the other side of the hotel. This is not where I would have chosen and would have liked to have been informed before our arrival as we were 8 people and would have been hard to rearrange on the spot. After we settled in it took a very long time for someone to come and take an order even for drinks and then an equally long time for the order to come. The same has to be said for the food order. The girl that was serving us was very nice and did apologise many times for the waiting. When the food arrived it was below average and some meals were cold. It was difficult to get any attention as the servers were busy and inexperienced. They offered to replace the cold food but the replacements were worse than the original so we just decided it was better to leave. The hotel is clean and decorated very nicely and it’s location is superb but I would not recommend eating there.

    We booked a table here for dinner which was totally unnecessary since the place was completely empty except us and one other party. It is located inside an upscale hotel which looks nice for afternoon tea or their oyster bar but wasn’t worth a trip out for dinner. They only seem to care about their hotel guests that eat there.

    We had a lovely evening for two people. The cocktails are exquisite, the service was friendly and took very good care of us, the meat and Cod fish that we ordered were warm and excellent. Also the atmosphere is lovely. We would recommend the Brasserie to anyone who likes to spend a nice evening. Elo & Chris
