Brocka-on-the-Water Restaurant

Anthony and Anne Gernon’s almost-waterside restaurant has attracted a following disproportionate to its size over the years and, although it has been extended at the back to include a high-ceilinged conservatory style room which opens on to a garden patio, it is still basically carved out of the lower half of a family home that is by no means huge.


The atmosphere is very much a “proper restaurant” - yet with all the warmth of welcome that the family situation implies. There’s a reception room with an open fire, comfy chairs, interesting things to read and look at (Anthony’s a dab hand at wood carving) - and aperitifs served in generous wine glasses, while you read a menu that promises good things to come in the adjoining dining room and conservatory.


Guests arriving in daylight will notice hens clucking around a garden well-stocked with fruit and vegetables - promising the best of all possible beginnings for your dinner.


Seasonal menus depend on availability of course, but there are always some specialities retained by popular demand, including Cooleeney cheese croquettes with home-made chutney (Cooleeney is one of Ireland’s finest cheeses, made by Breda Maher on the family farm near Thurles).

Seats 30 (private room, 30); D 7-9pm Fri-Sat, other nights according to demand (call to check opening times off-season). Set D about €40, also à la carte & Vegetarian Menu. SC discretionary. House wine about €22. Air conditioning; toilets wheelchair accessible; reservations strongly advised. Closed Sun, Mon, Wed. No Credit Cards. abbreviations
