Dine in style at Bunratty Manor Restaurant

For the Love of Great Food

They say the sign of a good restaurant is that locals dine there – and this is certainly true of Bunratty Manor Hotel. There are few people in county Clare who haven’t experienced ‘Noel’s place’ – and it’s easy to see why.

Noel’s at The Manor is one of Clare’s leading restaurants, with many awards and accolades under its belt and a reputation that has travelled far and wide. For many of our guests and diners, our restaurant is the first port of call when visiting county Clare.

It’s a simple recipe, but one we have perfected over the years…

The Best of Casual Fine Dining

We express our joy for life’s experiences through our food, and our award-winning team, led by our Head Chef Gary McGorrian, prepares each meal with passion, creativity and thought. We offer both an A la Carte menu and Set Menu, along with daily specials.


Our restaurant is rated as one of the top in Clare, while our long-standing chef earned his pips at Heston Blumenthal’s temple to innovative cuisine, The Fat Duck. Our famous Seafood Chowder has also featured on TV3’s Ireland AM.

“Stunning food, excellent staff, lovely experience. Went for a meal with a group of 6. Had the most beautiful food, very diverse and interesting menu. Staff couldn’t have been nicer. They brought out 4 varieties of bread. When we commented on how nice they were, they brought us more. Food was amazing. There’s a lovely bar to relax in after meal. It was my first visit but def won’t be my last.”
