Four of us visited Ardtara House for dinner, which was our Christmas present from daughter and son in law. The welcome was friendly, the food was delicious and the staff were pleasant and helpful. No complaints and had a very enjoyable evening.

There is a small room with a bar. There is a separate sitting room adjacent that is very pleasant. The bar staff are quite helpful and friendly.
