“Burke's is the perfect place to enjoy a meal after a hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We did the Cong to Clonbur hike and were delighted to enjoy a meal at a friendly pub before hiking back to Cong. The menu had a nice variety of options to choose from and it was exceptionally good. So good, we returned the next day after we hiked up Mt. Gabral. The staff is friendly and helpful providing tips on what to see in the area. you may eat out on the balcony with aviiew of Mt. Gabral or inside surrounded by memorabilia and antiques.

“A unique place with fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner had a meal at Burkes on our recent trip to Ireland. This place is truly special. The outside of the restraunt looks very small don't be put off. The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff very friendly.

The food was amazing !!! I had a curry not really expecting much as we where at a irsh pub. But it was by far the best curry I have ever had !!! I feel I have a lot of experience with Curry's so I don't say that lightly.

This is defiantly got to be on anyone's to do list when you visit the west coast of Ireland

“Homemade brownies”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Enjoyed a wonderful meal at Burkes restaurant yesterday evening, the food, service and warm welcome were, as always pitched at just the right level.
The homemade brownies were the talk of the evening and I'm told they proved very popular.
Well worth a return visit !!!

“Fantastic Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I spent a semester of college in Clonbur studying field geology, and spent each night at Tí Bhúrca drinking pints of Connemara Black (Guinness) and a few glasses of the Paddy. This pub holds a very special place in my heart (though my liver might not agree).

I've been back to Ireland several times over the past few years, and each time I've made a point to stop and visit. The service is excellent and the food is consistently fantastic.

If you are ever in the area, do yourself a favor and stop by for a pint or five. Say hello to Tomás, Eoin, and Anna. Slainte!
