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

I went while on holiday three weeks ago what a fantastic place. I cannot wait to go again there should be one of these in every city! The quality of the food is fantastic and the staff cannot do enough. Our group included to locals and three tourist all of whom could not praise this place enough. We all had different meals excellent and good wine choice. Well done.

Keep it up and cannot wait to visit next time.

At first when we walked into the bar, I admit, I considered turning around and going elsewhere BUT DON'T!!
The restaurant is beautifully laid out and furnished. The wait staff were so friendly and welcoming. When our waitress came, mid-meal, to check if everything was ok she actually apologised for interrupting... Nice touch.
We opted for the Chef Set Menu (3courses €24.95) and were blown away by the flavour, presentation and well-judged portion sizes.
The wine list included one of our favourites from South Africa, which we haven't been able to get in Ireland before. It was delicious.
We're in Ballina for one more night and, although I'd love to try a new place, I doubt anywhere else will measure up to last night's success at Brennan's Lane. Top notch

This restaurant was recommended by the B&B we were staying in. The food was good, great presentation and good portions. They accommodated all the allergies i.e. nut & lactose intolerance.
