The best in the west 💚

Love it ! For many years I am a guest in the Long Dock Restaurant and for me it is the one and only seafood restaurant ! You will have fresh fish everyday and a very cosy and relaxed athmosphere especially when you sit by the open fire ! No matter if you are there in summer or in winter... read more

Had a family get together and experienced that magic combination of good food and great service. Their fish pie is to die for. Try the crab claws as a main. 9 for dinner and everyone loved their dinner. Took home some of their salad dressings and oils too - really good

The first time I came here was during the summer with himself, I have never been so satisfied leaving a restaurant until the second time I returned with both my parents for my father's birthday last Sunday. Without a doubt the best crab claws I will ever have in my life, they were just amazing! I got the chilli fries... More

Food is quite delicious, but we had to wait too long to order the meals, maybe because it was Saturday night? But nonetheless it's worth the money.

Two visits in less than a month. The food is excellent, the service - brilliant. When it comes to quality in Co Clare - And County Clare Quality is of a VERY HIGH STANDARD ------- that is why the Long Dock Carrigaholt is worthy of the phrase AS GOOD AS IT GETS. If you dine here and you do not... More

We enjoyed the catch of the day and fish & chips along with Guinness, which was very delicious, service was very friendly, but due to many guests, a bit slow..Nice peat fire & cosy atmosphere. We'll come back one day!

we loved this and visited several times while in the area. by our second visit they treated us as much as locals as a visitor can be. the food was consistently great, and it was just a pleasure to eat here. afterwards take a walk around this tiny town, it's very sweet.

When we arrived at the pub we were famished after a whole day of hiking. We weren't disappointed. Every single course we had was absolutely delicious. Especially the salmon was out of this world. Definitly worth a visit when you are in the area.
