Good welcome, warm atmosphere, enthusiastic service. Good menu and specials. All three of our party opted for fish. I had hake and it was one of my all time favourite fish dishes. Nicest samphire I have tasted. Good value

Like most places in Ireland Christmas Eve is a half-day...
How come the cornstore restaurant replies to all positive and ignores the negative feedback... being in business myself for 30 years this to me is bad management..... if one is so positive their restaurant is up to standard. surely they would defend all negative comments.
