I ate here a couple of weeks ago for a family birthday celebration. We decided to try some where different and we weren't disappointed. The mussels were just Amazing and the portions were massive. I myself went for the prawns in chilli and garlic served with Garlic bread but we were able to all share as there was no way...

Within walking distance of the small village of Leenane and overlooking Killary Harbour. Breakfast and dinner were both excellent. Good choices available. Comfortable bedroom. Good WiFi. Only sticking point was the door to the bathroom would not fully close.

Just happend to walk by the portfinn restaurant and walked in. Great food. Excellent service, nice atmosphere and a table where we could watch the tide coming in on the beautiful fjord. All this to a bargain price. Go there!!

Just back from a lovely break in Leenane. Port Finn was the perfect place to stay. Lovely views, lovely breakfast friendly staff and dog friendly. Only a walk away from the village it was a great place to be based whilst exploring the beautiful west 👍

We ate at this excellent restaurant and were treated to top quality food and service. We were a large party, so I had a chance to taste lots of the menu. The fish was superb and so fresh! I had the mussels to start and I can honestly say they were the nicest I've ever tasted. I had the lamb...

I spent the weekend with my husband and a friend and couldn't be happier with our stay. The rooms weren't ready on our arrival and we had tea/coffee+dessert while waiting served by a lovely member of the staff (as all the other members). The room we stayed in was cozy, decently cleaned and had all we needed, including tea facilities....

Amazing service from the staff here. We were staying as we were doing the Maumturks Challenge in April. The staff were amazing and went out of their way to help us. They even got up at 4 am to make us breakfast before our hike, unexpected but so much appreciated! The food was great and the location unsurpassable. Well done...

A group of us stayed in Portfinn for 2 nights on hiking weekend. Great accommodation and location. Evening meals were excellent. Best fresh mussels ever. Certainly coming back. Great value for money too.

Thank you for the review. Our mussels are probably the freshest that you can find in the country so delighted that you enjoyed them.

The hospitality and food was amazing. We wanted a very early breakfast in order to take part in the maamturks challenge. They prepared a cooked breakfast for all the early risers and were so pleasant and accomodating. A fabulous experience overall.
