Used to be my favorite restaurant in the country!

I usually look forward to coming here...being a local..it made it easy to go whenever it suited. I found the quality of food, although better than most restaraunts, lacking. The service was left to one elderly lady, who although knew and attended keenly to the regulars, picking up takeaway, left... read more

This friendly pub Carrigaholt is treasure. The warm and welcoming open fire creates the perfect ambiance to enjoy a pint of Guinness. The staff are friendly and make a visit a memorable occasion. I can recommend the Chowder and any seafood main course. Most of the fish is local caught and cooked by a first class Chef.

My family and I ate here for a family birthday. Very friendly staff, great food and lots of choice on the menu. They also sell homemade biscuits/icecream etc which are definitely worth a try. Would recommend to friends

We chanced upon this lovely pub in Carrigaholt (thanks to Pat at the Post Office) while touring Ireland in September. Had a fabulous evening of seafood and craft beer. The seafood was absolutely beautiful and it was interesting to have a different craft beer to accompany each course. Everyone was so friendly and we felt like we were in the... More

A very nice friendly place to have dinner. The pub has the typical Irish atmosphere with very friendly and attentive staff. It's a warm and welcoming spot with a good varied menu. The food in my opinion is decent without being exceptionally good. You won't leave hungry or vowing never to return. Price wise much the same, not too heavy... More

A lovely place to have lunch or dinner in Carrigaholt. There's a lovely selection of fresh seafood at all times. Also the chowder is very good here and people travel for miles around to sample it.
