From start to finish I can not find fault and trust me!!! I'm a toffee nose when it comes to food and service. I was with a group here recently and the food was Devine and service was faultless. I ordered Brie as starter and portion was big and very tasty, main course was steak, veg and potato came on... More

We originally visited over 20 years ago and on traveling around the area, not remembering the restaurants title, we noticed the restaurant was still in the same place. As we could only peep through the window as the restaurant is only open weekends. We made our booking and on arrival we were welcomed from the staff and shown to our... More

Really enjoyed the meal. Staff very helpful & friendly. Menu has lots to offer. I really enjoyed the Duck. I thought the chocolate brownie was just a little bit dry, maybe a little more ice cream too. Other than that it was great. Just walked in at 7:45 on a busy Saturday night and they gave us a table for... More

We use to go to this place regularly. It got more and more expensive. Then they brought down their prices and took a chunk of the portion sizes which they couldn't afford to. Food good, but over priced. Service good

A cosy little restaraunt. I have only ate here twice, the first time I did it was fab, the second time, not so much. The portions are quite small so I did leave feeling quite hungry. I ordered the seabass on one of visits which was fine but quite plain and a little over cooked and came with the smallest... More

Pol o D's has quite a sophisticated menu with some real delicacies available. You will dine in a convivial setting in the spirit of olde Ireland. Once you've sampled the Pol O D experience there's every chance you'll return...again and again. Wonderful place..

Delicious food in a local, cozy restaurant. The selections were interesting and the Sea Bass was delicious. The wait staff was attentive and the place is charming.

We had a wonderful meal at Pol O'Ds. It was a sophisticated menu but the atmosphere of the place was friendly and cosy. More than you would expect in a small town in Ireland... (oops hope that's not rude!) The service was very good. We certainly hope to visit again!
