We visited The Wild Geese last Friday evening for our work Xmas Party Dinner. There is only one word to describe this place - WOW! From start to finish our experience was flawless... There were 24 in our group and we had the ground floor restaurant to ourselves. The atmosphere is warm, cosy & inviting. Julie the manager welcomed us... More

My friend and I stayed across the street from Wild Geese and had a lovely dinner. Had we not been to 1826 the night before, we would probably would have enjoyed it even more ... but if you can only go to one 1826 gets my vote. Wild Geese is quirky; you ring the bell to get in, are ushered... More

This is brief but really nice. If you don't like small rooms maybe it's not for you. It's like a tiny house. Food excellent. In the middle of Adare village. Bar was like grans front room only in Ireland. Food is too quite a high standard.

There is a separate vegetarian menu which is a lovely touch from the usual options left to the end of the main menu. the vegetarian options were excellent and wide ranging. only letdown... More

I had the pleasure of dining in Wild Geese again but this time it was slightly different as it was Dining in the Dark for the National Council for the blind. When we arrived we were met by the ever charming Julie and had a drink by the fire, we were then taken to our table and we were blindfolded.... More

I had been dying to dine in the dark and once this opportunity popped up my partner and I were delighted. The restaurant has a reception room with a fireplace and a small bar area. We were offered a drink by the welcoming maitre D who was lovely. Upon entering the restaurant we were blindfolded. The food was amazing. The... More

We missed coming to the restaurant on our first go through Adare so we made sure to visit the second time. We were early but that was no problem and we were seated in a parlor with a cheery fire going and offered drinks and provided with some light snacks. Julie came by to answer any questions and to take... More

We went back to the Wild Geese for dinner recently. It was just wonderful. From the lovely welcome into the deep welcoming sofas for a pre dinner drink, to the lovely table with such comfortable chairs, it was heavenly. The scallops with black pudding were divine. Steaks cooked to perfection coupled with excellent service. If you want somewhere away from... More

The ambience is great, it feels like a private house. It's beautifully designed and the food is very good. Good service with a smile. I special place to take someone so the prices are higher but worth it.
