Easily the best seafood we had while in Ireland! The hake was so fresh and so good that we ate every bite!

stopped here for a snack hoping to have a nice chowder in this Seafood bar. Unfortunately they don't do chowder which I found strange for a seafood bar . I had crabmeat on brown bread which was delicious.

If you do not like fish, do not go here! Simple menu, mainly cold fish, crab, hake......but it is well done, in a simple setting, delicious. Have a Guinness as an accompaniment.....

Have visited, ate and drank here on many occasions. The food is sublime no matter what you order. Everyone is made so welcome, it doesn't matter if you are friend or stranger you will be made thoroughly welcome.
