The Roost is a large public house with separate bars, a public bar, lounge area, mezzanine bar and a music bar. It combines the old with the new, as the pub still has many of its original pieces in place.
Enjoy a spot of lunch in The Roost from midday to 9pm daily but do not overlook the breath taking features throughout the pub from stone matches mixed with timber and glass to the beautiful flower display that has been known to be a topic of conversation among locals and tourists alike.
Throughout the years The Roost has had a great connection with Rugby and GAA. Several of our customers have represented both Ireland at an International rugby level and at University level for the All Blacks of New Zealand.
The Roost is a large buzzy pub that provides guests with both great drinks and great music every weekend.

Excellent night out Booked an area for my birthday. Manager was so nice and couldn’t have been more helpful. Band was excellent and bar staff lovely too. Had an absolute brilliant night. Thanks so much
We were looked after wonderfully I’ve just finished a fortnight working with a group of Ukrainian kids over here to study English. The Roost has fed us lunch and dinner every day and looked after us in style. The food has been tasty, hearty and filling, any requests have been accommodated with no fuss, and the staff have been warm and friendly throughout. Thank you so much for making our visit special - we have many fond memories and I’ll certainly be back next time I’m in the area.
First class! My wife and I were looking for somwhere to eat in Maynooth and rambled into The Roost. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were immediately seated and menus offered to us. We were very impressed with the choices of specials available. I chose the Fish Pie with fresh vegetables and my wife had roast Turkey and Ham with mash and fresh vegetables. The food arrived in reasonable time and was piping hot and really delicious. The only minor niggle was the Broccoli was a bit undercooked for us but it is a minor point as the remaining veggies were delicious! I can heartily recommend The Roost if you are seeking great food, excellent friendly service and great value. We shall be back very soon!
A lovely Friday evening with friends We had a lovely evening in the roost made by the lovely Pearl behind the bar! We were visiting Maynooth for the first time and she gave us great recommendations. A lovely place with excellent service!

Called in after work for some lunch, Chris met us at door took our details (covid aware)
Showed us to our table and chatted along the way, menu has something for everyone. We gave our orders and had look around. This place is huge inside lots of seating and spotless clean, staff are friendly and very helpful, now the most important part “the food” I got the beer battered fish with chips and side salad and I have to say I haven’t tasted fish this good in years, cooked to perfection and the batter was so light and tasty it was delicious, very generous amount of chips with mushy peas and refreshing side salad. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole meal. Thanks very much to the staff for most enjoyable lunch
And of course Chris for service with a smile
