Saddlers Bistro

Overlooking the flower garden and with a terrace area for al fresco dining on fine days, Saddlers Bar & Bistro is ideal for casual dining at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is casual and warm and on offer is a full selection of dishes guaranteed to provide something delicious to suit everyone’s tastes. The decor reflects The Keadeen's entwined history with The Curragh, including PJ Prendergast's very own saddle which was kindly donated by the Prendergast Family.

For weekday Lunch options the menu includes a number of lighter bites, fusion sandwiches, salads, and soups, as well as changed-daily main courses.

For a bustling Sunday Lunch, the kitchen team bring out all the classics, including a Sunday Roast, for all the family to enjoy and the traditional style Sunday Lunch menu is tweaked weekly.

In the evenings the lights are lowered to bring a cosy and warm ambience to Saddlers when for Dinner you can try the ever popular signature Keadeen Burger or the Sizzling Sesame Chicken and you won’t be disappointed.

Executive Head Chef Kevin Curran and his team delight in constantly changing and experimenting by adding exciting new dishes to the  Evening Specials Menu, bringing back locals, regulars, and guests to Saddlers time and time again. Our pastry chef provides guests with desserts to die for on a daily basis.
