Any time I'm in Clare I love to Eat in Goosers in Killaloe. They have a great menu , especially fish dishes , but it's hard to beat their Irish stew on a cold day. The thatched roof, the wooden tables & the stone floor all help to create an unique atmosphere. The location is perfect overlooking the river Shannon.... More

Charming pub with above average menu and restaurant quality food. The food is well presented, hot and with more than enough for the heartiest of appetites. Friendly, chatty staff. The lovely log fire adds to the pleasing atmosphere. Would highly recommend.

We visited Goosers on a Sunday afternoon for lunch with our children. We loved it, the food was great, portions were big but also the quality of food was very good. We ordered one children's portion while having two children and they brought two plates so that each one of the girls will feel they have their own portion. They... More

I stopped in here with my extended family on the way to an overnight stay in Feakle. The portions here are huge. The stew is full of meat, the fish pie is full of fish, and even with a big appetite you'll struggle to finish them off! The service is very friendly and the decor is typical old-style Irish pub....

Popped in to this little spot for lunch while staying in Killaloe over the Christmas period. What a little gem of a spot. Very cosy. We sat beside the little open fire! Had a beautiful lunch. Food was excellent and great value.

Lovely evening for a pint by the fire. We all had duck which was crispy as promised (sauce could have been a bit more orangy than gravy-but was tasty). Loved the fresh beans wrapped in bacon. Great front of house staff-relaxed and amiable. Might even go back again this week :)

I'm a big food fanatic and have to say that I had one of my best meals ever here. I loved the bar area and the staff were so polite and helpful. Not cheap but still good value due to the quality

We were 4 adults and 1 infant visiting the area, heard it was a good place to eat so thought we would give it a go. Really enjoyed the food, staff were kind, helpful and brought over a highchair and were cheerful towards our young son. We ate outside with the views over the scenic river at sunset. One or... More

We ended up here after a long drive along the Lough Derg drive. Very Irish Pub/Restaurant place with great ambiance. I had cod, which was good. My husband and son had the Irish stew and it was amazing. We are still talking about it. The service was fantastic as well. Very nice experience.
