  • We had a lovely lunch here. The seafood chowder was delicious, as well as the locally smoked salmon. The brown bread was the best we’ve had while in Ireland. And the staff was outstanding! A shout...

  • Amazing place. Stopped by for dinner and came back for live music that night. Was staying up at the Ritz hotel and noticed the Jameson Crested was 12 euro at the Ritz and only 5.50 euro at the Roadside Tavern. The place has amazing and authentic atmosphere with superb staff. Definitely stop by!!!
  • Excellent Irish pub with great food. We had the specials of the day..roasted lamb and potatoes along with thick bacon and cabbage. Both excellent. In general the potatoes in Ireland are much better than what is found in the US.
  • Fabulous place for food and live music! Made our day!
  • My sister and I were coming back of visiting the Cliffs oh Moher and were heading to Dublin. We ended up in the Roadside Tavern and had dinner, and we are so glad we did!! The food was amazing and the owners were lovely!! I recommend everyone that has a visit planned to the Cliffs to stop by because it is definitely worth a visit! A true Irish place and wonderful people. Thank you,
  • Visually beautiful food that is also delicious. Cold smoked salmon over potato salad is incentive. Seafood chowder was full of seafood with a delicious cream soup. Cold cider paired well with both and these two appetizers were enough for two people for lunch.
