Description: For intimate dining and sumptuous wines, indulge at the Restaurant Merlot. A delightful mix of European and classical Irish flavors, choose from the exciting table d'hote menu or the sophisticated a la carte menu. Pan fried king scallops, seared fillet of Irish beef and a daily selection of locally sourced fresh seafood are just a few things to tantalize the taste buds. And to complement your choice, we will help you select the perfect wine from our extensive range of display in the cellar.

Visited Merlot recently for dinner as part of a large group (11). We had a table reserved. They offer a daily menu and a-la-carte. The choices on the daily menu were excellent. For starters, the crab claws were the most popular selection. For mains, the fillet steaks were outstanding while the hake, the chicken and the salmon were enjoyed. Our waiter recommended the Malbec which was excellent.
People sometimes can be put off by a restaurant which is part of a hotel and treat it as second tier. However, Merlot puts this myth to rest. Overall, it is a top quality restaurant with great food, highly trained staff and beautiful ambiance.
Highly recommended.

Was staying for 1 night and as part of our deal we choose to eat in the hotel restaurant. Having been to Westport before there was other places I had eaten but decided to try this restaurant. Fantastic from beginning to end. Kathy & vasile were exceptional staff. So friendly and bubbly. Great value and tasty food. The house red and white wine was lovely also. So was breakfast. Will definitely return. Fantastic.
