Nice location overlooking the water. We were confronted with a power outage, but the menu choices were just fine. Staff was very nice. After driving through the Burren in the morning, this was a great place to stop.

Loved this pub with great views out to sea. Even though pub was full we were greeted warmly and could not fault the service. Excellent tasty food highly recommend the salmon. The chowder as a starter was so tasty. The relaxed atmosphere,friendly staff and excellent food make this seafood pub a ' must visit' during and trip to the Burren.

The food here is fantastic but we were not made very welcome. We have had 24 meals on this trip and only two establishments made us feel like this, so not bad going really! My friends who always rave about Maine Lobster said that this was the best ever! Long after we had finished our meal a waiter came over... More

This place has a good reputation so was looking forward to being there. Had crab claws, mussels and oysters to start. Crab claws very good if a smallish portion. Mussels a bit overly salted - a little cream and garlic in the cooking would have made it much better. Oysters were perfect... Main course was scallops on rice with side... More

We knew linnane's lobster bar from Ireland official tourist website. Need watch the sign of new quay otherwise very easily missed it. Very nice pier location and very helpful staff.

Linnane's is nice and the food is good but I always think they could put a few new exciting ingredients into some of the dishes. Overall the views over the bay, the service and meals are good.

I've been going to new quay every summer since I was a child (30years) this year I was lucky enough to bring my own daughter to linnanes. The menu hasn't changed much in the 30 years but why mess with perfection. The seafood is amazing. No matter what you order you won't be disappointed. Chowder means chowder unlike other restaurants.... More

We had a family party here on a Saturday evening early in August. The place was packed but, despite this, the service for our group of 25 was very good. The food was excellent.

Luckily I had my significant other with me who had heard about Linnanes and their wonderful seafood fare . We had spent most of the day driving around his old haunts when he pulled off the road and said it was time to sample some great food . We were seated at a table near the window and at 330... More

Thankfully Linnane's is off the beaten path.....so there's always a table available either inside our out. The freshest fish you will ever eat....literally straight off the boats.....which park up 20 metres from the pub....incredible place - real Ireland...
