Stopped here on our tour of the wild atlantic highway in Connemara. Despite it's name it doesn't overlook the bay and looks pretty ordinary from the outside. We ordered the cream of country vegetable soup and a chicken panini between us. They team were really friendly and our order was delivers promptly. The soup was gorgeous, creamy and served with...

Having read other reviews we, a party of 13, were not expecting anything special. We were in for a surprise..not only was the Carna Fish Chowder one of the best I've had in Ireland but the service was warm and friendly. Our server as it turns out competes in singing Irish songs and actually sang a beautiful Irish song for... More

The beef stroganoff was surprisingly good and well-presented. The atmosphere was nothing special. I was happy to find a decent meal out here on the Atlantic coast though.

The catch of the day was cod and tasted as though it had indeed just been pulled from the sea rather than the freezer. Generous portions,... More

This was a slightly strange encounter. We arrived into the reception, and it did not look like much. The decor needs a makeover big time to bring up to date. I would image that many potential customers turn on their heels and walk out just because of first impressions. However we stayed for our meal. We were pleasantly surprised, they... More

Just had lunch here. Awful value for money, I really felt I'd been ripped off after the meal. I had a chowder which cost the same as a proper decent chowder elsewhere in Connemara, but was small cheap and thickened heavily with flour. One of the kids had sausage and chips, they were the cheapes sort. The worst was being... More
