Description: La Fougere is a multiple award-winning restaurant, perched on the hill side overlooking Clew Bay & Croagh Patrick. Seamus Commons, one of Ireland’s most respected chefs, heads up the team at this Westport restaurant and the food is impeccable; with fresh fish, caught and landed daily, locally reared beef and lamb with fruit & vegetables grown in Knockranny’s gardens. Eating at La Fougere is all about relaxed fine dining, great food chosen from local producers and an interesting wine list – in great company. It’s a fantastic place to gather, open a bottle of wine, take in the breath-taking views and choose something from the delicious menu.

“Food and service second to none”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The variety on the menu is good. The table service is beter than good! When out food arrived there were a couple of time we would have preferred some more vegetables and potatoes and it was only a matter of asking - they were brought to the table with a smile. The quality of food was never anything less than excellent.

“Delicious food!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We ate from the set menu but you can pay a supplement for the a la carte. All the dishes are beautifully presented and delicately flavoured you do not need to reach for the salt and pepper! The staff are so helpful, and made eating here a delightful experience.
