Description: Brennan’s Lane is in the heart of Ballina, on the evocatively named Garden Street. From outside it looks quite small, but this is deceiving as it stretches way back and is actually huge. It has an almost Tardis quality in the amount of space inside. Downstairs is the bar, where some pretty serious gigs take place while you will find the restaurant on the first floor. The dining room is beautifully designed and features exposed brick walls, cool sofa seats, plenty of well spaced tables and chairs and some interesting art, as well as a series of old style butchers blackboards showing farm animals and the parts the different cuts of meat come from. The room is long and fairly narrow, but well thought out design means it feels light and airy, and the open plan kitchen at one end adds to the sense of space. It is modern and elegant, warm and inviting. Description from Taste of Ireland by Paolo Tullio

Brennan's lane was the venue of choice for my Husbands Stag and our Post Wedding/ final night in Ireland meal in Aug/ Sept 2012. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food is fantastic, the portions huge and the staff are a credit.
We and all our guests were so impressed with the service and the quality, then the bill came along and it just topped it off- the value for money is great.
On our next visit to Ballina we will defiantly be back!

Myself and a colleague were in Ballina on business and had wanted to get out of the hotel for dinner. I used tripadviser.ie to search for the best restaurants in Ballina. Brennan's Lane was top in the list of best Restaurants so we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed one bit. We had friendly, professional and attentive waiting staff (our favourites being Connor and Siphon). The atmosphere was great with a restaurant full of character. The food was fantastic and good value considering the main course sizes!!!! I had Pork Belly to start with, full of flavour, tender and exquisitely presented. For my main course I had a 10oz sirloin steak with Champ Mash, carrots, green beans wrapped in bacon with an accompanying peppercorn sauce. I asked for my steak Medium Rare which arrived just as requested. The steak was probably in the top 10 I have ever tasted! Absolutely beautiful, melt in the mouth and a real treat and delight for the taste buds! My colleague have the Atlantic Crab Claws to start with and then the Rump of Lamb. The first comment made was 'this is soooooooo amazing'.

I have no doubt Brennan's Lane deserves the accolade for being voted best restaurant in Ballina! Give this restaurant a go, you will be blown away on all aspects of your culinary experience!!!!!
