O’Gorman’s Bars & Restaurants

O’Gorman’s Kilminchy opened in 2002, the first of Donal O’Gorman’s personal ventures, instantly becoming a success in an up and coming area of Portlaoise.

O'Gorman's Kilminchy

O’Gorman’s Kilminchy soon became known for its quality food, drinks and excellent customer service. Always innovative and progressive, Donal O’Gorman soon added an Off Licence, then a Thai Menu and recently a Wood Fired Pizza Oven along with a covered heated outdoor dining area.

O’Gorman’s Bar & Restaurant has gone from strength to strength over the years, winning many prestigious awards.

What our Customers say…

Hidden away in a residential area on the road out of Portlaoise towards The Heath/ motorway turn off. Very clean and well organised bar with top quality food way exceeding expectations. Impeccable service. Highly recommended.

Food is savage!! Garlic and Chilli chicken wings and chips are amazing. Great variety to choose from on main menu and kids menu. The lady who served our table could not have been nicer, I think her name is Mary. Plenty of seating and sanitizing stations. Cannot wait to return. Well done!!

The food Is lovely, the staff are friendly but a bit forgetful when asking for side orders, but dont let this turn you off, it's a busy place and they word hard, I love seeing Rebecca and Michelle, lovely ladies who always go the extra mile.. Thank You

Food was lovely it was my son's 30th birthday dinner and the staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us especially our server michelle who was very professional and a lovely person a very big thank you to all involved you made it a night to remember for us all but especially the birthday boy

Had a fabulous Sunday lunch, table had been been booked and was ready when we arrived. The staff were polite and very helpful. The food was very good ,portions were not small .only thing for me was my beef lunch was not hot enough, but I will definitely be back again. The cost for 6 was very reasonable

We just decided to try a walk in here of a Saturday evening with a party of 5 and were accommodated straight away. We had a lovely spacious area and the kids loved it. Meal was delicious from start to finish and every plate was cleared. Great sign when the kids are begging to go back! Very reasonable as well so great for family dining.

Great night out here, tried their new frozen cocktails and was very impressed. Highly recommend this place.

We've made a stop on the way out from MRH in Portlaoise. The burgers we ordered were absolutely delicious 🤤, French fries crispy and tasty too. What a treat!

Absolutely outstanding. Staff brilliant. Food so so good. Got the Korean pulled pork burger. Try this.

The staff were brilliant! So friendly and nothing was a bother to them! They made us feel very at ease, and took the time to interact with our 3 year old, which was much appreciated!
The food was every bit as lovely as the staff! An extensive menu that would suit everyone's tastes.
Would highly recommend! 👍
