Byrne & Woods Restaurant
This is one of the few places one can eat where it feels welcoming even if there are only a few people in.
The dining room looks and feels like you would expect from a private club;
it also has a patio with view of the lake.
Joe and his team provide excellent food and service, and there very patient with kids.
In the bar there is a wonderful atmosphere with music some nights and of course Guinness and a roaring fire.
