Paddy Burkes is basically an institution - but in my opinion is overrated. The interior is very worn and tired and needs a bit of love. The staff need a bit of finesse and customer service could be better. The food is pub food and is ok - I ate here recently and ordered the chowder and the trio of... More

Usually stop to eat here when travelling from Cork and the food is always good with good variety on the menu and large reasonably priced portions

Called in on spec as I was passing. Very busy on a friday but was shown a table quickly and enjoyed a good soup and open prawn sandwich. Excelent food, well served.

A very beautiful place. Kitchen always open, good seafood and affordable prices. Very large menu, with soup, mussels and other, you can choose between wine and beer.

Very tired and worn interiors and uncomfortable seating in bar area. Service wasn't great and we ended up chasing staff for our bill despite the place being quiet. The food was very disappointing with little effort in prep and presentation. Very slap dash. Won't be returning!

Driving from Ennis to Athlone in a campervan, it's difficult to find good parking and good food.... We found both at paddy burkes... We stopped for a bowl of chowder and we were not disappointed! Fish of every type ... Including Mussels, clams and a huge creamy oyster... We loved every bite... Thank you!

We've spent many years driving past Paddy Burkes but decided to stop off last Sunday evening. The restaurant is lovely inside and has a real romantic feel to the part we were seated in. Great menu to choose from, from light bites, pizzas, fish and steaks. The staff were very friendly and service was good. Great portion sizes and good... More

Probably for the last 30 years I have driven through the beautiful village of Clarenbridge on the main road from Galway to Gort, Ennis or Limerick and often commented on how I should stop there sometime for a bite to eat in the well known and internationally acclaimed Oyster Inn, however time commitments of perhaps having just departed from the...

There was six of us for dinner, two adults and four children. My husband had the chowder and I had the duck salad both divine. The kids shared a portion of... More
