First time we had been out for dinner since all the closures so we were a bit apprehensive. Great place to start. Spotlessly clean, super friendly staff and great food. Food was gorgeous. Nice touch including juice at table. Excellent service had lovely meal. Couldn’t...fault it. Wish we had somewhere as good near where we live.More

We have been in oldcastle for a dinner and we have found this pretty restaurant in the center of town. Great Irish hospitality and kindness. We thank them for that. We think, in general, that this country need to improve its sort of cooking because...there are great fish and meat and also farmers vegetable. I think that in the future, with evolution and study, they can reach great result.More

My husband and I had dinner here on a Sunday. We live locally & haven't eaten here in quite a while but extended family were bringing back good reports to us so we decided to see what the fuss was about. My husband had the...roast beef and gravy with potatoes and vegetables @ €11.95. I had the salmon in herb crust with mushroom sauce with salad and chips €11.95. Both were served very promptly. I could have done with more mushroom sauce but no one came back to check were we OK mid-meal. I thought the piece of salmon was lovely. Very decent portions. We weren't able for dessert. We were just right with the mains. Think staff could be smilier😊 Overall, we'll return & would recommend if in the area.More

A local recommended Caffrey's Bar to us and indicated that it was one of the best places in town. We had enjoyable food, received efficient service, and found the prices to be fair. The interior was rather new, modern, and clean, and the bathrooms were...also pleasant. We enjoyed our meal at Caffrey's Bar on our visit to Oldcastle.More
