We dined here few weeks back.. so impressed we returned.Our greeting on arrival was friendly and professional.
You are firstly seated in the waiting area which is cosy and relaxing and once you drink order is taken. I feel this is where ambience of this gorgeous Restaurant kicks in.
We were relaxing with sufficent time to enjoy our drink while the menu was shown to us to ponder on.
We were then seated in a comfortable time span after that.
Music was mellow and so relaxing while the white candles flickered in several locations about the Restaurants ..lots of them too.
We ordered Duck Salad Crab Claws Salmon served with a mixture of breads and crunchy home made chips simply devine. We shared an ice cream dessert washed down with a malbec and Sauvigion. Our experience here once again was excellent and under the Attention of Michael and his team how could we be dissapointed.
The loos are elegant and always clean smelling of cotton candy candles.
We will return cannot wait.
Well done everybody

My husband and I chose Gallagher's for dinner on our last night in Ireland for our honeymoon, and couldn't be happier with our choice. We loved the ambience of Gallagher's, and enjoyed a relaxing and delicious meal, with excellent service.

Six of us had dinner - to celebrate our 47th Wedding Anniversary and it was excellent. I had Sea Bass and it was mouth wateringly fresh and delicious. I opted for Ice cream in a brandy basket to finish a truly memorable meal. A lovely touch was the piped " Happy 47th Wedding anniversary" on both my Wife's and my dessert plate. We were served fantasically by Clodagh and team with the Manager- John- paying a regular visit to our table. Míle Buíochas John agus Muintir Gallaghers for making our anniversary and St. Patrick's Day so memorable.

after being recommended by both concierge at hotel and taxi driver we were disappointed. high priced, food just 'ok' except for crab claw starters which were excellent but the service was poor right from the outset. Maitre D quite abrupt 'where is the friendly Irish hospitality, no drinks or offers to take orders for 35 minutes, staff had no peripheral vision and it seemed our table did not exist as they kept walking past us. when we finally did order the food arrived in about 5 mins... but no starters, no drinks... it was a cock up right from the beginning. The maitre D then says 'lets start all again'... when it came to desert time, we could not order as there were no staff in front of house... we timed it as it was sort of like tjey had all gone off for their dinner... Super City prices at a local joint.

I did drop an email to the restaurant to give this feedback and got no response... maybe that goes with the service. Cannot recommend any other restaurant in Limerick but can easily not recommend this one.

My boyfriend and I came here for Valentine’s Day and it did not disappoint. The restaurant had a romantic atmosphere, all the food was cooked beautifully and the panna cotta was the best I’ve ever had. Delicious!
