We booked the 'Cabin' room for a night. The cabin was a cosy room with en-suite facility and found towards the rear of the restaurant in one corner of the car park area. The area itself was quite and the cabin being away from the restaurant and the main road made it even more quite. But its not the usual... More

Went there to celebrate my wife Anne's birthday. Very happy with the quality of the food, and the value for money. Staff were very friendly, and knowledgable, and made our experience even better. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area.

Arrived the 28th July for a 5 night stay. Again, the stay was perfect, Neil and his staff can't do enough for you. My room was clean and warm, with the breakfast well worth getting up for - setting you up for the day. Hopefully see you the same time next year.

This was the second time of staying at Tigh Na Mara and overall our stay was very enjoyable. The food both at breakfast and on the nights we chose to dine at the hotel was very good, with an excellent choice and flexibility with breakfast menu. Our disappointment was with the room which was a very small twin, and quite... More

My husband and I went for a meal here yesterday after reading very positive reviews but we wish we hadn't bothered. I had pre-booked a table as they were very busy but when we got there we sat in the lounge area and had our order taken, then waited to be taken to our table for nearly half an hour.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious dinner while holidaying in the area. We have often eaten at The Tigh Na in the past but had a couple of disappointments last year when we felt standards had slipped. It's now back to its' usual high standard. The quality and presentation was lovely. My crab starter and sea bass main was... More

We've eaten at the tigh na Mara many times over the last 12 years since the current owners took over. Popped in for Sunday tea, and as usual the food was faultless. Restaurant was pretty busy, as was the public bar. Seafood pancake was excellent as were the butterscotch profiteroles. Early bird menu (before 6.30) is worth coming early for,... More

We had a fabulous dinner there, food was really good, the dining room was attractive, clean. Staff were very friendly. We stayed in room 4 - it was small, there was no top sheet on the bed, and it gave us a skeevy-feeling - and the bed was not comfortable. The shower was a hose in the tub that you... More

Stayed in room 4 on 1st floor. Unusually this had a bath with a shower suitable for washing hair over rather than a shower cubicle. Not suitable for a stand up shower. The water was hot but ran slowly. The room had a sea view. There was just a small road to cross to get to the front. Tea, coffee... More
