Went for lunch, the fish was excellent as was the freshly baked, warm brown bread. We had a lovely view of the sea and pier at Flaggy Shore. Can't wait to return!

Hi my wife and I and my sister and her husband are going to Westport next week Saturday 8th of August. We would like to go on the cruise of Clew Bay. We will be staying in Hotel Westport for 2 nights. Can we be picked up from there for cruise and how much is it? Laurence Galway.

I am so sorry, but Linnane's is on the South side of Galway bay and a very long way from Westport and Clew bay, so I cannot help. But I wish you a great holiday. best,Ian
