    Originally from Clogheen, made my first confession in the dining room. Food and service fantastic and it is a wonderful addition to Tipperary’s culinary delights.

    That’s a strange idea – eating in someone’s former confessional! Have you eaten there, Jen? I’d love to go back and spend a night and try out their breakfasts at some stage too.

    Had dinner there a few months ago and it was delish! It is heavily booked up at the moment as family were recently trying to book a table for 5. Lucinda O’Sullivan gave it a great review recently and they are getting the business they deserve.

    We had to book about seven weeks in advance for our Saturday night there – bookings are no easy thing to get! I saw Lucinda’s review as well. She raved about the place. Made me want to go right back and stay there!
