Lobster Delight

We stopped by on our way to Doolin. Always a delight to visit this bar, we had lobster lunch and a lovely pint. If only I had a tee total driver! or indeed, they had rooms, Bliss!

We stopped off at Linnanes today as we were visiting the Flaggy shore and often wondered what this place was like. The setting here is beautiful and we were lucky to have a seat by the windows with a beautiful sea view. The food quality was excellent and even our 14 year old was impressed. Thanks for a lovely lunch,... More

Our family of 4 were seated in a room with one other table of 15 loud people. That was the poor start. We ordered -I got the mussels in tomato pepper sauce. It was fresh delicate mussels drowning in thick salty tomato sauce with giant strips of red peppers. I could not taste the sea whatsoever. The sauce should have... More

We have visited Linnane's many times, indeed we go out of our way when going to Co Clare to make sure we eat in New Quay at Linnane's. The sight of the lady chef walking to the pier to collect the Lobster you are about to eat after she has boiled it for a few minutes is exciting. How fresh... More

Visited this pub restaurant in March great food and lovely small bar with a lovely open fire. People were lovely and friendly, although you need to watch out for the sign after leaving Kinvara. Lovely views overlooking the sea from the large windows. Good crowd there even though it was March.

Our dinner at Linnane's was one of the best of our trip. We had raw oysters from Galway Bay, crab claws, crab cakes, scallops, and fresh fish. The wine list had a good selection and our server made a suggestion that went well with our meal. The location is great - right on the water. We were able to watch... More
