Great find especially as they showed Sky sports! Not for me but the other half!! Great food, good service and not too far to walk from where we were staying - the Ice House! Well worth a visit whether it be to eat in restaurant or simply just for a drink or two in the bar.

This place has got it right. It has a good menu, the food is tasty, the portions are generous and it is good value for money. To top it all off they had something which I have not seen offered on a menu before which is a whiskey taster to finish off your meal. Three irish whiskeys and a fact... More

We ate here on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend and it was so good that we came back again on Sunday night. We had the lamb stew, the brisket and then the chicken and chorizo pasta and the burger. We had dessert both nights too - berrry crumble and ice-cream selection. Every morsel was fantastic, so well cooked... More

I've eaten here twice recently, and Crocketts is still consistently good. Friendly and efficient staff serving decent food in pleasant surroundings. The duck was particularly wonderful. The only negative was the tasteless chips served with the panko chicken sandwich - c'mon Crocketts, real chips aren't hard.

I was in on a quiet Sunday evening for dinner but I can see that I would be a great venue on a Saturday night as well. Mostly families in for dinner and to watch the Irish Euro qualifier on the screens. I love to see locals eating at a venue, great sign. I had a delicious meal of baked... More

Had dinner here two nights while visiting Ballina. It is only open for dinner. The dining room and service are excellent, and the food is better than average.

Stayed here while on a family trip, first of all the negative. I can't speak for all the rooms but, the room we had was very basic by modern standards, bed, shower bathroom , small TV and that's it. No tea, coffee, iron etc. Also quite noisy as it was above the bar and the window seals (considering it does... More
