Update 20 Sept 2016

Went back as stated but very disappointed, what was presented as a Big Breakfast was despicable, burnt rashers, overcooked sausages, and two hard yellow blobs as eggs,  They must have had a poor cook in that Sunday Morning , pity as first impression was good but  I took to Trip Advisor reviews and I am not the only one disappointed,seems you can be unlucky if you get the wrong cook on the day. or indeed server as some reviews mention a young rude server, we only met Maureen who was delightful.

Always a lover of the full Irish breakfast , we were delighted to find FIDELMA’s in the main street Dunshaughlin, We had read a few reviews and decided to try it out for ourselves Imagin our  surprise to find that the reviews on trip advisor etc  were every bit as good if not better. We went for the big breakfast on Sunday morning the 12 June 2016,  lovely clean restaurant maybe a bit spartan for some but clean and a very good ambience and to top that a brilliant breakfast  fantastic value,  on the advice of reviewer’s I opted for the medium full Irish  wow, I found it hard to finish, I doubt I could have managed the FULL IRISH service was excellent served by a very hospitable lady .

Best Value eating house in the Dublin region has to be Seasons Restaurant in the Springfield Hotel (old Dublin Rd ) Leixleip . Fantastic food at very very good prices. typical  4 course meal for two including a bottle of very good wine €59. You just have to try the Sea Bass

we have to recommend the big breakfast at the Salmon Leap Inn (right at the bridge ) in Leixleip I never tasted Black and white pudding like it we found out it came from Annascaul in the county of Kerry (good traveller) brilliant we can  safely say it was one of the best full Irish we have experienced in Ireland .
