Picaderos, Maynooth, Co. Kildare

Desmond House, Main St., Maynooth, Co. Kildare

On the main street of Maynooth, you’ll find Picaderos. Its massive Argentinian and Spanish menu means that there’s plenty to choose from and something for everyone. It’s run by the same family that look after Donatello’s and Oak Alley, also in Maynooth.


What has it got?

Seating:  All of the tables have moveable chairs (no arm rests) and at the bar, the stools are high.

Doors:  The front doors are double doors so you’ll need to open them both to fit in. The other doors are wide and easy to open.

Ground:  Tiled floors.

Stairs: It is all flat here except there is a steep lip at the front door. I need to tip my chair back a bit to get up here.

Bathrooms: They have a wheelchair bathroom (huzzah) and it is a good size.

Spaciousness: Some of the tables are a bit close to each other but if you mention that you have a wheelchair when you’re booking, you will be able to get a table that’s handy.

Helpfulness of Staff: If you need anything, the staff are very attentive and accommodating.

Parking: On the main street, there’s a number of wheelchair parking spots and there is one right outside Picaderos.

Rating: 10/10
Why did it lose points? It didn’t! Visiting Picaderos is a stress-free experience and it’s just one of many accessible restaurants in Maynooth, which I will get around to reviewing shortly!
