Hi Geraldine, so good seeing you again, hope its the first of many paint outs. Pity I had to leave so early but it was my own silly fault !!! I did work on my painting when I got home so all was not lost, but I did kick myself. Annie
Clonegal has one of Ireland's six Michelin star restaurants, but Sunday lunch at Sha-Roe is going to set you back aboutt €35 and in my case, I'd have to sleep it off for the rest of the afternoon. Huntington Castle is not officially open until May - but we have free access to grounds (normally €5) kindly from Moira.
For lunch options that leaves the pub, Johnny Dunne's.
They open 12.30 - 1pm-ish on Sundays, and don't do sandwiches except to special order but will not mind if we bring our own to eat inside with a cup of tea or coffee or a pint purchased at the bar.
Other than that, its a picnic by the river but either way, bring your own grub. There is a garage/supermarket (PJ.Dunne's) which may do take-out coffee and rolls but of that I am not certain.
