The view while you eat here of the Atlantic Ocean is enough to entitce anyone in but it is the... More

The warmth of the place, firstly the young bar man who served us drinks by the turf fire, then the meal in the restaurant was absolutely beautiful. This all contributed to a wonderful weekend with friends and family. Thank you Padraicin's...we will be back.

Called in on Sunday night recently, it was very quiet, understandably for November. The place is big, quite nice, lovely fire. We considered dinner, but given that it was so quiet and the barman wasn't overly helpful. We ordered a coffee and a Club orange. We sat over by the fire, the "barman" left the coffee on the bar with... More

Came with friends for dinner so couldn't enjoy the view out to sea but looks fabulous. Service was efficient and all our food was tasty, especially the seafood chowder which was a generous portion, packed with seafood.

We tried the quality of padraicins at different times for dinner and lunch and were never disappointed. The meals were above average and perfectly prepared. The tea was strong and of a very good quality. The staff was friendly, fast and helpful; the view from the window-tables is wonderful.

fantastic location and ambience. Food is great but I would love to have a wider selection of fish dishes. very romantic, wouldn't recommend it with young kids. We brought our 1 year old there and had the feeling we were spoiling the evening for everybody else.

Padraicins is a lovely restaurant sitting on the sea shore with stunningviews out over the bay. The food lives up to the setting with fabulous tasting food and lovely seafood. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
