A gem!

Recommended by locals on the day. Had a late lunch. All food prepared in their kitchen - wow. Tasty, great menu, beautiful decor (even the smoking turf fire) & really friendly & helpful staff. I would travel to eat here. Lots of fresh seafood, the pastry on the tart was divine.

The cheerfulness of the staff is what I remember from the Long Dock. The food is good too - the fish and chips were well done and while the sticky toffee pudding didn't attain the "best ever" status as claimed in the menu, it wasn't something that you would send back either. The interior is a little cramped and the... More

If you want to try some locally caught fish you should definitely try the Long Dock in Carrigaholt about 8 miles west of Kilkee. Imelda the proprietor offers a great range of seafood and meat dishes and even sells sauces, jams etc to take home as gifts. Very good service - yummy!

The food was pretty good, the Guinness was well served, and it was a decent place to go after a long day of touring and driving.

First discovered The Long Hall in the '90s when I brought my two daughters on a driving tour of west Clare. Since then I've been back several times, in different circumstances but it remains, to this day, one of my 'go to' places on the road west. The joke is, though, it's not that easy to find. It's off the... More

Reccomended by local friend and came out from Kilrush for tea at the weekend. A seafood restaurant across the street from where the Carrigaholt Bay fishing boats moor. Wish we could have managed a second lunch as the menu and food being served around us looked and smelt excellent. Instead we added some home-baked cookies to enjoy with our pot... More

Really nice bar, old school type place. But I thought the prices were a bit much €13 for starters crab claws, being a town on the coast I thought they should be good so looked for it to be a main. €26 for 16 small crab claws. I bought a kilo later in the day for €15. Bit of a... More

Had dinner with my kids and parents here last night. We sat out on the street. It was amazing in the sunshine and the seafood pizza and fish was delicious. Service from the ladies was great very patient with the kids. Thank you. We all had a lovely time.
