Lovely bar, great view, fabulous food

I had heard of this bar beside the pier in new quay. The staff were extremely curtious as were all the locals. The food was delicious and the steak was cooked to order. They mainly serve seafood but steak and chicken are also on the menu. A true gem of a restaurant in a scenic area.

Himself and myself make the opportunity to head to North West Clare as often as we can each Summer. I have been heading to Clare for years now and I have found that Finnavarra/New. Quay is my favourite place to stay. Linnanes pub and restaurant is a big part of the Charm of this area for me. It's setting is... More

This place is consistently good for food and wine. The staff can be a little distracted because the place is always busy. Parking is at a premium but the location and the food make it worthwhile. If you're in the area, this is undoubtedly the best place within a ten mile radius, for food.

We would regularly drive 1 1/2 hours to have lunch here. If you are lucky enough to get a seat outside in the sun it is a true gem, but the wide windows at the sea side offer a spectacular view as well. The fish has always been excellent, had oysters and baked crab last Sunday and they were superb.... More

This place was recommended by someone I met at a petrol station. It wasn't easy to find, but it sure was worth it! When we arrived on Saturday night it was packed with people. But a kind waiter found us a space to eat in about 15 minutes, and we were delighted with the food and ambiance. The service was... More

Hard to recommend on the basis of the main course: scallop and pea risotto was oily, lacking flavour and was under-seasoned. Chocolate torte that I tasted was delicious.

One of the Burren in county Clare best kept secrets. Never a hassle when ever you turn up. Cool cross between local pub and Resturant. Tis on the pier. The grubs good and the prices sound. 1/3rd cheaper than its famed competitor Morans on the Weir. Don't tell anybody, it will get too busy.
