  • Online bookings are cut-off 12 hours before opening in order to best accommodate our walk-in guests. If you’re looking for a same-day reservation you can WhatsApp +353(0)85 139 0304 to inquire about availability.
  • Reservation are available 90 days in advance.
  • Tables are available for set time that will communicated to you in your booking confirmation email, after which they will be re-booked for another customer. If your reservation is an hour before kitchen closing then the table will be your for the night.
  • Should you wish to have a drink prior to being seated, please arrive earlier or change your reservation to a later time. You may continue your experience in the old bar or the beer garden (weather permitting) for drinks after your meal.
  • Due to the large number of requests, unfortunately we cannot guarantee specific tables or areas when taking reservations, but we will do our best to accommodate your requests. Your understanding is appreciated.

We have two areas we have to accomodate our furry friends. The ‘Old Bar’ and ‘The Greenhouse’ and of course they are welcome in our beer garden in the summertime.
