Each time i get to Ireland and West Clare I seek out Linnane's. It is a totally positive experience each time. Can be considered crowded, too lively, less than leisurely, etc. but the location on the New Quay Pier, the staff, and the food are way above average and it is high on my list for the... read more

We had high expectations of this place after reading good reviews and hearing local recommendations. Unfortunately it really didn't live up to the hype for our family of seven.The crab claws and soup were adequate, the salmon pasta and chicken wings were mediocre and the baked salmon somewhat overcooked. The kids tomato pasta was the best of the dishes on... More

Linnanes was recommended to us as a place to enjoy dinner and we were seated promptly on arrival despite some confusion about our booking. Service was good and our dishes were as described on the menu. We enjoyed our meal and relaxed over a post dinner drink with friends. This is a very busy spot during peak season and the... More

My daughter and I took a friend to Linnanes for lunch and what a treat. Fortunately for us the Unpredictable Irish weather decided to let the sun come out to play so we dined outside. We were greeted by a lovely young man who took our order and promptly served a basket of delicious , hot "straight from the oven"... More

Went here with my girlfriend while on the wild atlantic way. Had done the flaggy shore walk and we were ravenous so stopped in linnanes and decided to share the seafood platter. The seafood was delicious and the crab was particularly good. Would definitely recommend it as a stop when in West clare. Staff were good and efficient

Fabulous location on the quay and the laid back atmosphere belies how excellent the food and drink is. Sit outside and take in the scenery around you before indulging in the finest seafood you'll ever eat. Great wine choices and service.

Having read so much about this restaurant we decided to give it a go, but wish we hadn't. Tables very close together and a very rushed feel to everything. Had the chowder starter and my husband has the goat's cheese, both fine but nothing wow about either. Had the fish special(I cod my husband trout) and both were bog standard... More
