“Excellent food and very friendly service”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We were staying at a B & B in the village of Oranmore and walked past the Boathouse one evening while returning from dinner. It looked interesting so we tried it our second evening in Oranmore. We loved it - the food was delicious and the service was incredible. Best of both during our 13 night stay in Ireland. We enjoyed it so much we actually returned the following night. I highly recommend a dinner here if you are in the area.

“Perfect service / delicious meal!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Just 10 minutes west of Galway City, is Oranmore, where you'll get one of the best meals you'll find in Ireland! The service is perfect, and the food is amazing. They start us with yummy complimentary h'ordeuvres and freshly baked bread. AHHHH. I began with a creamy potato leek soup which flavors were delicate and delicious. My main was dill risotto topped with fresh trout. OMG. Both cooked perfectly. Although too full for dessert, they still treated us to the best homemade chocolate truffles I've ever eaten! I can't wait to return!

“Best Choice”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Plenty of choices on the menu, food was first class, we could not fault any of it! In addition the mains were served with a healthy portion of fresh veg or sides of your choice! Go for the food, you will not be disappointed with the service either

“Great Food Great Service”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had a very nice visit to The Boathouse recently. The food and service was very good and the attention to detail excellent. I had a very nice caprese salad with a maincourse of belly pork. It was cooked to perfection with some black pudding on top ! Accompanying side dishes of fresh veg and potatose were also perfect and i couls not fault either the service or food. The prices are ok, just a little on the expensive side for restaurants of this calibre. I would like to return soon and try some more of their menu.
