“A great Family restaurant for all occasions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Menu change recently and quite as extensive as before but better. Suitable for all the family and also good for groups and special occasions. It is not a romantic vevnue but great for good Iriish Food - the steak on the stone is superb. The service is good, the staff are nice and in the summer time they have Taditional Irish Music on Thursday evenings. It is a lrage restaurant on the first floor, but you can also eat in the bar downstairs, which is a big area.

“Great music and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We had a basic fish and chips meal, which was OK. What we loved was the great Irish band, which really made our evening. Didn't want to go home.

“Great atmosphere.(and they seem to like kids!!)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

We called in here for lunch with our three little girls en route to Westport/Mulranny and really enjoyed it...The atmosphere was so relaxed, the staff couldn't be nicer and it was so child friendly..(so important for us..) we really enjoyed our food and the childrens menu is huge! Veg soup/burger/carbonara/bolognaise/pizza/chicken goujons/fish goujons/sausages&mash.......5 euro!...and FREE baby mash......and a menu with spot the difference, join the dots, colour me in and word search.....which can win you a 50 euro voucher monthly....someone here is thinking outside the box and we left with three very happy little girls with pops in hands who were very impressed!! I wouldn't hesitate recommending this place we will definately call in again...

Kayla,
Thank you for taking time to write review. We accept all reviews no matter what they say. I am delighted you enjoyed the visit with your children. As parents ourselves, we are very aware that once the children are happy, the parents can relax and that is why we include the activities on the kids menu and try to keep the little bosses happy. Looking forward to seeing you and your family again soon on your next visit West.
