“Very happy to recommend Linnane's”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a very good old style Bar that produces excellent food excellent sea food - cannot get fresheras it is landed on the pier beside the resaurant - no prolem with measuring Carbon Miles here. Thankfully has been very busy during the summer, sometimes you have to be patient but well worth it.

“Wonderful fresh Seafood”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

We stumbled upon this place by accident on our way back from the Cliffs of Mohr. Great advertising along the roads and very easy to find. The crab cakes were divine and so fresh. My friend enjoyed the open faced crab sandwich. It is a perfect way to end your day after the Cliffs of Mohr. Great Find!

“Alot to be desired”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

My husband and i made a recent visit to Linnane's during the weekend. We have frequented this establishment quite often as we are avid fans of this coastal region. On this particular occasion we were very disappointed from start to finish. We were seated at a dirty table which hadn't been cleared until just prior to our meals arriving. The food was satisfactory just, but some of what we desired was surprisingly unavailable. Whilst the younger members of waiting staff seemed friendly and approachable, the senior members were less forthcoming and lacked the attributes which are crucial to making visitors feel welcome. They were not interested in engaging with the customers. This is unusual to discover in a traditional Irish pub and restaurant which are famed the globe over for their hospitality and warmth. From what we observed, there was a middle aged woman possibly managerial who projected a distinct lack of social graces. We left disappointed and with no real yearning for ourselves or our counterparts to return.

“One of the best”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

On a recent 12 day holiday in the region we ate here 9 of the nights we were that impressed.We managed to book and get a window table, it is a lovely view with lots to watch especially if the catch was being landed. The food was great with ample helpings and the staff were very friendly with nothing too much trouble.
