We have enjoyed many wonderful meals here over the years but it is not as good as it was. Service was very poor the night we were there, we were left standing for ages before,we were show to our table. The food was ok but not great. Sorry to see it like this when it used to be so good.

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.

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

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 !!!
