Glasson Village Restaurant

About us


Since 1986

Situated in the beautiful village of Glasson close to Lough Ree and it’s waterside woodland walks, boating, fishing and the highly acclaimed Glasson Golf course, this two hundred year old listed building is packed with charm and character. Previously an old RIC barracks and later occupied by An Garda until it’s conversion by Michael in 1986, the building retains original fireplaces and window shutters, which add character to the interior.

Chef Michael Brooks

The restaurant being just over an hours drive to the east coast and less than an hour to the west coast, has a great selection of seafood and offers daily specials. It is proud to have achieved B.I.M. Seafood Circle membership year after year. As well as fresh seafood, Michael also sources the best quality meats, vegetables, game when in season, local Irish Hereford beef and other local produce, when possible. An award winning restaurant listed in all major guides.
