The River House

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The River House is where we stop to get something nice to eat every time we are passing through Cahir and, it seems, we are not alone. Mel Gibson – yes, that Mel Gibson – stopped in for lunch to The River House when recceing movie locations in summer 2012. Mad Max 4 in Cahir? We like the idea. And we like the professionalism, and the clean open, bright space of the room. It's a restaurant that manages to cope equally well with the tourists visiting Cahir Castle, as well as individual eaters like ourselves who are seeking out coffee and a scone, or something savoury and satisfying for lunch.

That's quite a feat to achieve, to strike the balance that sees individuals are happy, and yet also manages to get groups fed quickly and back on their way. So keep an eye peeled for Mel next time you are in The River House.
